As in life, so in knitting!
I’m still slogging away on the Summer Mystery Mini-Shawl:
I got all excited a few days ago when I thought I’d finished Chart C/Clue 3. I got Clue 4 out and set to start it, just reading the instructions to check I was heading in the right direction. It went “by now, you should have completed 3 repeats of Chart C”
I’d only done two.
So what you can see above is Charts A and B and 2 and a half repeats of Chart C.
I’ll keep chugging on!
No real progress on any other knitting that I can show publicly yet (oh, how mysterious!) but I have been learning how to spin soysilk
Well, it’s a soysilk/wool blend but that somehow doesn’t sound as impressive! It’s just over an ounce of fibre I got from dragondancer as part of swap. I’m struggling to maintain a consistent yarn diameter but oooohhhh, how soft it is! It’s a challenge to maintain the colours as they are in the roving (is that the correct term?) but it’s all part of the learning curve. Right?
So, to conclude; I’ve been busy on caring duties and mystery crafting but I’m still trying to find time for myself.
Oh, and I’ve been reading actual paper-based books!
