Hello and how are you?

Front to the first aran sweater finished. Sleeves, both at once started.

I'm on the last increase row on the tea shawl. 6 more plain rows and I start the last evil pattern chart. Lacevember is for 2 months, yes? I may need both months to get thru that chart.

Valerie presented me with 4 oz of hand dyed (by her!) superwash merino this morning. Yum. I can't wait to spin it up.

Speaking of spinning, there is a merino/tencel blend on Lulu at the moment. I'm quite proud that the singles are 36 wpi. It's the Autumn colorway from The Sheepshed.

Also done is the Sno Cone roving, all plied up (navajo ply). I have approximately 140 yards of it. Now, what to do with it?

Bonus points to whomever can tell me what tv show song the title of this post comes from.....

Pssst! The Magic Garden...teeeheee!
I love this as a child. I wanted to have a storybox and grow a chuckle patch of joke telling daisies.

Love the yarn you spun! I'm making a mess on my (borrowed) spindle. I've put it away until I can take a class or something...lol

Let me guess: The Wiggles? ;)

Sno Cone looks great! Maybe a hat?

LaBean said...

It's the Magic Garden!!! I read the title and was like, "???" :)) The Sno Cone is tres yummy! I don't know what to make of it. a Hat?? Yeah a Hat!! 36 WPI. I still can't believe it. How'd you decide to spin it that fine, anyway?? YAY for Val and her superwash dyeing!! heehee

What pretty colors! So summery -- definately a cheerful something for the winter blues.

Wow. You're like a spinning machine at the moment, you must be so quick. Me and my wheel are barely on speaking terms. I just can't seem to get the hang of it, I know I need to just practice more but I want to be able to do it well, right now!

Oooh, pretty!

The sweater is looking good. I look forward to watching it grow.

I looooove the way Sno Cone came out! Wooooo! I'm off to figure out how to Navajo Ply so I can work on my yarn looking as faboo as yours!

Zonda said...

Love the Sno Cone! Nice work there! Very nice roving too! Can't wait to see what you spin up! Go you on the sweater! :)

Sarah said...

Love the Sno Cone! A kiddo hat methinks.

Val's roving is gorgeous! Woo! Go Val!

Can't wait to see your Aran.
