Listening to political news on NPR a lot these days while I knit, feeling a bit unsettled as trouble swims below the surface. However, here in my wooded hermitage there is no trouble, only this blithe little ball of yarn, in shade of dusty pink, that I made myself! Um, well, that is … I un-plied it myself !! I ‘made’ it from a ball of Knit Pick’s Palette which is a 2-ply fingering weight of Peruvian wool, while mending dozens of breaks from impossibly sticky teasing twists that were a frustrating occurrence of un-plying, washing, and hang-drying to set the tension ~~ and then I finally got the whole ball of lace-weight here ready to go. Having tossed a few grams worth of knots, I have about 45 grams & 420 yards of some seriously fine lace single ply ( see all posts about unspun)
What is really fishy , is what is forthcoming!
Well, that’s very cryptic chookie! Looking forward to seeing what you make with that. Beautiful colour too. xxx
Kelly! Hey you! Yes, mysterious and I just love to give hints…lol.
I want to send you some shortbread dear, so you MUST send me your new home address! xx
Jen, I would love to hook a copy of your latest pattern. 🙂
Thanks Wen, I’ll send you specs in ravelry right away for the test- zone! 🙂
‘hook a copy’ what a great funny pun. lol
haha good one! The blog is beautiful, and I am somewhat astonished what you went through to get the yarn the way you wanted it. Now looking forward to seeing the finished product.
If you have a spinning wheel, it can be done, still it is just plain Crazy Work, agreed. 🙂
