Chill morning, stone steps.
The path to the temple is steep.
We may stumble at times,
But we must always get up again.
In my spare time this week, I worked on the Serendipity roving that I had dyed last week. Each night I sat down and enjoyed watching the colors wind up onto the bobbin, but as I was spinning, I was struggling a bit.
I quickly discovered that this blend really should be spun from the fold, but because I had predrafted the entire amount, I continued on, hoping for the best. Unfortunately when it was all spun up and plyed, I was disappointed.
Last week, I read on Sara Lamb's blog that spinning silk from the fold helps immensely in obtaining consistency, so I will give this a try on my next go around with silk :-)
I was going to use this for my morning glory shawl, but once spun, I think that the shades of yellow are a bit too overwhelming, so it's back to the drawing board. I will instead make a scarf from this yarn once I find the right pattern for it.
Ms Woolen Rabbit looks a bit dismayed, doesn't she? Just look at them ears.....she is not a happy bunny! If you look down at her feet, you will see what has her in a tizzy...it's a disheveled Yellow Taxi...LOL.
Yep, that is my sock wrapped up in that ball. I completed the sock up to the toe, but was just not happy with the fit. The sock was so loose on my foot and I knew that I probably would not wear it much the way it was. Washing this superwash would not tighten it up either, so you guessed it.........rippppppppppp. Back to the drawing board again, looking for a pattern that is going to suit this great yarn a bit better :-)
It has just been that kind of week......I think that I am not too sad to see this week come to an end. Thank goodness there's always next week :-)
