Knitting, cleaning, and meditating…now spinning

meditation

I’ve been on a big destashing mode lately.

It makes me feel good. I can give, toss, or make something to give to someone. I have wanted to have a space in my office/craft room for meditation and yoga/Pilates.  Now I do! Almost done with it.

Left on the list is new curtains, or some kind of window treatment. I was thinking about bamboo shades, until my neighbor’s son came over when I was piling baskets into my trash can. He said his mom wanted the one on my top shelf if I was going to get rid of it. I was so confused, until I realized that she could see that from her window across the street. (maybe with binoculars)! So blinds and or curtains.

I’ve been doing quite a bit of spinning (for me). I met a girl on Ravelry that has become a good friend, she showed me how to core spin. While I still feel two thumbed when I’m trying this here is my first attempt:

Spun up from a batt that I purchased from UniquelyYoursDesign.etsy.com 

Fiber Content: Corriedale, Merino, Bamboo, SW Wool, Artsy Corriedale, Angelina, and Shredded Money (EXTRA Shredded money included on the side.)

I’m ready to ply this superwash merino that I purchased from The RanchesAngora.com (a long time ago), it spun up nicely and quite fine.

I just got this batt on the wheel and can’t wait to finish it! It is wonderful to spin, thanks to DragonflySoars 011

It is a delicious blend of wool, firestar and soy silk from Ogle Design. Just touching it makes me go ahhhhhh…..photos soon..

Until later, get your knitting needles out!
