This is the skein of yellow and orange two ply yarn I made. Its about 17 yards long. Image 1 shows the skein, image two is my skein and drop spindle. Image three is my freshly wound ball of yarn, post soaking to "set" the twist.
|Dear friends and family,|
Im starting this blog to catalogue some of the many projects Im working on, knitting and otherwise. Here are some current and recent projects:
These little booties I made from scrap yarn. Its Manos de Uruguay wool, in a deep purplish brown with a light pinkish beige trim. I knit these in about 3 days, mostly on the bus to and from Philly. The pattern comes out of the Debbie Bliss Baby Knits book. They are HUGE. 4 1/2 inches. Much too large to fit a 3-6 month child. Debbie Bliss, you are crazy, but its ok, they will be given to Lou, my baby bro.
The last image shows the ribbing under the fold.
|And last but not least, the faux roll-top desk I bought this past weekend at the Fort Greene Flea.|
