I plyed some yarn this week....this was all due to the workshop I attended last week. It forced me to ply some singles. This yarn is very colorful. It consists of some fiber I bought in barn 31 at the NYS&W festival a few years ago. I plyed it with some silk a spun that had similar colors.
Now that I have bobbins galore I can choose some new fibers from my stash to experiment. One thing Alden Amos said about spinning that is that we should spin for a project instead of spinning aimlessly. What do you think about that idea? The purists out there may disagree....
On to knitting...I'm still experimenting with swatching for Marisa's wedding stole....drat I can't show you pics because John reads this blog and it's bad luck for the groom- to- be to see the bride's wedding day ensemble.
On the reading front I can't say enough about Kite Runner. It is a must read! It opens up the world of Afghanistan in the context of a very engrossing father-son relationship that creates a universality for the reader.
