in the knitting basket

February 2, 2012

Right now I’m working on:

-the Vespa shawl for myself…I swear every time I knit something for myself it always ends up going to someone else. I swear this one is for me! I’m using Universal Yarn in red-purple, quite a beautiful yarn.

-the Lacy Girly Girl Poncho for little Miss Boo, for later ;) I can’t help myself. Girly knits are way too much fun. I’m using Noro King in blue-green for a ‘mermaidy’ look.

ALSO….big news on the fiber front! I’m getting a spinning wheel!!! I’m so excited I can hardly wait! It’s coming on Monday. I will have to post about that when it comes. I’m totally new to spinning but I have been watching a ton of videos and I happen to know a couple ladies that spin, so I might ask for a mini lesson or 2, or 10. I have an entire 20 lbs of beautiful carded grey wool from my grandparents farm that I would love to spin up. 20 lbs!!! Can you imagine all the sweaters one could knit out f 20 lbs of yarn?! Oh I’m so excited.
