So far Sunday

  • The x took the kids to church. I went back to bed.
  • They came home with Dunkin Donuts. I had a chocolate-filled one.  I’m gonna weigh 200# if I don’t start burning some calories.
  • I still feel sore-throaty, stuffy, and lethargic.  I’m lying around and bossing everybody else what to do.  It’s the rules.
  • I think I’m nearly loopy on cold meds.
  • I finished knitting the hat I’m working on. The pattern called for 3 or 4 pattern repeats.  I did 4.  Decreased over 7 rows (2”), and the hat was too short.  Had to pick out the last 7 rows and put it back on needles.
  • It’s handspun yarn, which I didn’t have any more of.  So I had to get out of bed and find the fiber and spin another 20 yards or so.
  • Artemas is making me homemade french fries.
  • I have orange juice.

Today’s Etsy features

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month (October) and BoobieWednesday, today’s featured soaps are Lil’ Brown Juggs, a bag with 8 guest-sized soaps in it.

And in “honor” of the selfish, greedy brats in Washington… Today from Diantha’s Fluff4ewe Etsy shop:

Show Me the Money" handspun yarn with shreds of real US Treasury currency spun in!

image

This is the 3rd time I’ve cast on this sideways cowl. 

The handspun Merino wool was given to me.  It is so soft but long runs of it were so fat (about 1/2” across) and underspun that I pulled the knitting out.  I spread out those sections of the yarn, drafted it out and spun it a little finer.  I washed and re-set the twist overnight. 

Hopefully I can knit this up pretty quickly with no more delays.

Today’s new yarn!
Bright and cheery or dark and mysterious depending on how you look at it, this skein of hand dyed and drop spindle spun, singly-ply sock weight yarn is super wash and perfect for a pair of warm socks!

After spinning, the yarn was washed in gentle soap to set the twist, and hung unweighted to dry.

THIS LISTING IS FOR ONE SKEIN ONLY!

This yarn will come to you delicately wrapped and wound into a center-pull ball. If you would rather have it in skein form, please let me know at checkout.

~~~SPECS~~~
Fiber: super wash merino wool
Skein size: 422 yards
Weight: sock
Recommended needle size: US 1 to 2.5 (2.25 to 3mm needles), or an B-D hook.

Care: While super wash fibers claim to not felt, I still would hand wash in tepid water and lay flat to dry. A squirt of hair conditioner in the rinse will make your item very soft!! (After all, wool is sheep hair!)

However it can be washed on cool in the washing machine and laid flat to dry!

From a smoke free home.

$34 USD + $3 s/h

An impromptu road trip should start with comfortable clothes and something bright, soft, and pretty to knit on.

Handspun Art Yarn "Aunt Imogen" with Pink Jump Rings, Pink Yellow White Yarn

An “Alice in Wonderland” handspun yarn in Diantha’s shop!

That yarn

was spun from a batt I got by being in a twitter spin-a-long a few years ago.  Everybody signed up & got one of 3 art batts with inclusions to spin.  

My batt was called “Cocoa” - natural-tan Merino wool with little bits of brown and white sheer ribbon, and little white pom-poms. I was able to include the pom-poms in the yarn by running a needle & thread through them and then spinning the thread into the fiber.  I added bits of angora bunny fur that I dyed with coffee, and plied the yarn after I spun it, with a laceweight red 100% cashmere strand that I recycled (unraveled) from a vintage sweater.

My daughter Des got a batt that was shades of blue and tan, and had sparklies and little cardinals with it.  She added some moorit Merino to it and made my aunt Beverly (who loved cardinals) a pair of mittens and used little cardinal buttons on the cuffs
