Wow....where did the week go? Each day that I was going to post managed to get away from me. I really was not all that busy, but I found getting to the computer was a challenge. Now how's that for a switch?
I did manage to spend some quality fiber time though this week, and I even poked around ravelry a little bit.
I have to admit that each time I look at my project page and see all of those WIP staring at me, it bums me, so I made a commitment to getting some of this stuff finished. I think this part of ravelry is going to be good for me.
My nemesis seems to be knitting the second sock. I always love the challenge of the first sock....but the second one....not so much.
Now, knitting my Honey Bee stole is a different story. Each and every stitch is a pleasure....so much so that I never tire of her.... with that in mind, I thought that I would use her for motivation.
Every week, I am going to try and complete a mate to one of the socks that are currently swinging singles and as a reward, I will get to work solely on Bee for one whole day......Sunday, my football day :-). How's that for creating my own motivation? Haha...!
As an added incentive to keep Moriah Anne busy as well, I also decided to join Margene and Carole's Naspinmomo. Basically in a nutshell what that is, if you do not already know is committing to spinning every day for a month. It can be a little or a lot, depending on what works best for you. That is my kind of join~along. No pressure, just pure enjoyment.
The roving that I am spinning is called Twisted Fiber Art in the Firefly colorway. It is a blend of 70%merino and 30%kid mohair. It was a wee bit felted, but if I separate the roving into thin strips and predraft it spins quite nicely. I love the way the vibrant greens blend in and out of the smokey grays.
So, even though I missed blogging, I did enjoy my week of fiber!
