First, I finished the first pair of my two-at-a-time baby socks from Thursday's post. They seem a little long in the foot; but it's been seven years since I had a baby foot around to measure; so these will have to do. The next pair is going to have a little pattern and no cuff--celery green this time, but same wool/silk machine washable yarn from Spud & Cloe. Hopefully, these will knit up quickly this week. I'm planning on an easier week than last week was.
And then Sunday afternoon, I brought out the electric spinning wheel--which I ultimately broke and my Honey is having to fix for me. But, before I broke it, I managed to get 118 yards of 2 ply artsy yarn--bulky, mostly--out of that super-waxy wool/silk mix that I started playing with last week. I have some of the roving left, and can probably eek out another 50 yards.
Honestly, I think the fiber broke the spinning wheel because of it's waxiness and its tendency to not want to feed into the machine very smoothly. Basically, I broke the motor. Early reports from the shop are that, even though the internal magnet cracked in half--you should see that thing! There's no way I can be held responsible for breaking a magnet an inch thick, no way!--and has to be re-glued, all can be repaired with the right glue. Honey says he thinks he's going to have to weld it back together; but that's just because that will give him an excuse to buy a welder. He might not be too keen on the idea of me quitting my job and opening a yarn shop, but he sure does like to use my online store as an excuse to ramp up his tool collection. ;)
Anyway, it's Monday, so here's where I've linked up. See you on the knit side.
