First off, I should mention that the blog is somewhat messed up at the moment and comments are not functional. That’ll be something I’ll try to fix soon. This week I’ll have some more knitting content & hopefully I’ll get to the blog fixing next weekend.
I must be on a gradient kick, because I took a perfectly beautiful bunch of BFL from Southern Cross Fibre and ripped it up to turn it into a gradient yarn.
This week I finished up my singles:
And then tonight I chain plied it all for a skein that’s about 290 yards in 104 grams.
I love the variations in the colours that come from spinning from the fold.
Next? Who knows. I’m so busy with the day job and knitting in the off hours. Spinning isn’t very high on the list of priorities. I still hope to start something new this week.
In family news, the kids have started up the latest round of swimming lessons at their new levels. All seems to be going well, except that I do worry that Sam is taking on a little too much water. It looks like a class in drowning at times. I did see improvement from the first week, so that’s promising. He’s also doing baseball skills training. This coming week will be Zoé’s first time at a volleyball class through the city. She had her first taste of this sport in school last week and is super keen to learn more. Fingers crossed that it goes well and that the enthusiasm doesn’t pass!
