I am angry at my beautiful Evenstar of Wonder mitts. I screwed up and I have vowed not to tear back so they are mocking me. I think I started my palm later than I should have and so now my thumb to finger tip length isn't going to work. Grrrrr...I think instead of mittens they are going to become fingerless mitts.
Have I mentioned that knitting doesn't relax me? Well, I am addicted to sassy knitted items and know I must knit them if I want to wear them so...the soap opera continues. Maybe next week I will figure out if those mittens have "One Life to Live" or not ;-)
When one fiber art stresses you out, you must return to the one that never fails. This week I worked on filling a couple of bobbins. First, I spun my Riddles in the Dark batt from my Hobbit Batt Club. I am going to Navajo ply it this weekend. I know I created this batt but I have to say...it's pure heaven to spin.
I started to spin a braid of roving I purchased from my friend CJ Kopec this summer. It's a BFL/Silk blend that is delicious to spin. I will most likely N-ply that too. I am really enjoying the three ply yarns I've been creating so...I am going to continue what I enjoy.
I started to warp my loom the other day but by the time I get home from work and the bears go to bed, I just want to spin.
In Alpaca related news, Mr. Tumnus went to stay at our friends farm. He was the only cria born this year and it was time to wean him. He is now in a pen and pasture with a couple of other little boys his own age. We loaded him in the back of our SUV and he did very well in his first adventure away from the farm and from his mom. The Bears really miss him and I do too. He is such a friendly fellow. With 4H beginning, we will be going to my friend's farm on a regular basis to help halter train him along with the other 4H Alpacas. He won't come home until mid-July once 4H is done for the year...that's a long time.
