I’m having a whale of a time with the spinning at the moment, even though it’s decidedly not my favourite spindle. I finished the blue
It’s very smooshy and warm and I pet it routinely. (it’s sat next to me right now). It’s a very gently 2ply, which I love after the chunkyness of the 4ply I ended up with.
I’ve hit 10 WPI (which apparently makes it thicker than DK, which I’m not sure I believe at all). And I’ve got about 220 yards, which is hard to measure without a niddy noddy, so I may be off. I think it wants to either be a hat or a scarf/shawl thing, but it’s going to have a few days more to decide before I cast on.
And I was going to have a break and finish the jumper, but then I tripped and started this. Spinning from rolags wasn’t my favourite at the start but I think I’ve got the hang of it now. I’m thinking I’ll knit a scarf diagonally- I want to keep the width the same for the stripes, but slightly more interesting than just knitting. Suggestions happily taken!
