Last Sunday saw the casting off of Fódhla.
With no interruptions of other projects for the week meant it was finished and off the needles. All it needs now is to be blocked. I’ve a new set of blocking wires on the way for that which hopefully will be here early this week.
Finishes always mean new starts.
Firstly I took this ball of yarn and started something new,
It obviously didn’t like what I started with it as it ended up being frogged back to a certain point 5 times, yes 5 after which I put it aside until such time as it wants to be knitted up, that may be later this week.
Out of the pile of new yarn I showed you last week I took these,
and started a new project, it’s moving along well for only having started it at the end of the week.
Oh now you weren’t expecting me to show you a full colour shot now were you? Haha, that will be for the end. I will I fear be playing yarn chicken so I want to get this finished or as near to early in the week so I can get my hands on another ball of yarn.
This year my aim is to get a spinning wheel, so while I’m gathering the funds for that I need to keep practicing my drafting and using my drop spindle. I hope to spin some of this during this week also.
And there you have the yarny week that was and what will be.
