Ask Poops, Please

Putting my two cents in.

Born and bred in a small New England town, I am convinced that I know something about everything, and that my opinion matters. If only to me. Well, you'll see what I mean. And I love to knit, so you'll see what kind of things I'm doing when I should be vacuuming the living room.

Take One: Spinning

I can only get out the wheel when Dave's asleep. He's very grabby.

Lately, I haven't touched my spinning much at all. I had some lavender merino languishing half-spun for months and months and months. I seem to find other stuff to keep me busy whilst Dave naps.

But inspired by Zonda's recent success with her singles, I decided to devote my afternoons to the merino until it's done.

And now, it's done.
The last picture is the only one that makes it look at all lavender. It's quite pink in the other two, and honestly...I think it's more pink than purple.

It's uneven. I had a lot of trouble keeping it one thickness, and I couldn't remember how thick I was trying to make it to begin with. That's the trouble with letting it sit so long. Plus, I tend to "spin thin" and have a struggle getting it thicker so I think I went back and forth a bit despite myself.

But, if I wanted perfect yarn I wouldn't be spinning. I would buy it already made. I like the thick and thin and slubbiness of homespun. It has character.

Ooh pretty!! I so agree, when I want perfect yarn, just buy it. I want yarn with an interesting twist..or not..or too much ;)

Very nice! It looks smooshy. Moochie goes into a trance watching my wheel. Of course I haven't tried it yet now that he's mobile. He'll probably lose a finger!
