So, everyone with blogger- I'm sorry. I'm going to your sites, I swear! lol
Knitting is Nourishment
From left to right- days 1-3.
Getting better, atleast I think. I'm still getting "the curlies" and I don't know why.
Besides that, I'm truckin' right along.
Yesterday at school we got our Earth Science mid-terms back. Not only did I get a 92.5, but I got the highest grade in the class and the only A. For a long time I was very intimidated by learning and school.
But I guess I kick a$$ after all.
But, you know what?
I adore it.
I can not wait to get better at this art. I'm having issues with too much spin on the yarn, and not enough take up, like I spin too fast for the bobbin or something. I dunno. Practice, practice, practice.
I went to bed last night and all I could think about was the hummmmm of the wheel, the way my fingers tingled, imagining the treadling.....heel toe heel toe....
I've been bitten.
**Special thanks to the guys at Twist of Fate Spinnery. They got me the wheel, put the baby together, taught me to spin, laughed with me at my mistakes and were very, very patient with me. I highly recommend them- the roving they gave me is soft, the customer service was great... thanks Jeremiah and Rick.**
I finished mittens for Hub's brother. Believe it or not, these might be too small for him. That's my hand on one of them. Hubs is the "runt" of his family at 6'2". No, I'm not joking. His brother is about 6'5" or 6'6".
It's a present, not sure who it's for yet.
Tomorrow is Turkey Day. It's the one day of the year I refuse to feel guilty about eating too much.
No sign of the spinning wheel, for those who ask. Fricke better be making me the best wheel ever.
