Something New and Something Blue

Sorry it's been so long since I posted. I've been busy. Work has been a crazy thing, with nearly 14 hours of audio sitting in my queue. As well, I've had little to no time to do anything for just me. However, I have managed to knit a bit on the Stor Rund Dug, and lovely large doily pattern from Denmark. Of course, it doesn't look like much now, but it will when it's blocked.







There's still a ways to go on it, and I can't wait to finish it. I'm probably going to use my green silk laceweight that I spun up to make a larger shawl version. It's so pretty!

Speaking of spinning, I've been dabbling:





It's 100% Merino, and I bought the fiber at Make 1, of course. Speaking of which, have you seen their new online store?




I've really been feeling the two ply lately, and the last fibre friday on Craftster added to the love. Anyway, I have eight ounces of this spun up, and at about 110 yds per ounce, I have a nearly 900 yards of this fingering weight yarn. I think I'm going to turn it into a sweater for moi.


Hope you all are well!

I really need to get Amy to teach me how to spin. Your merino looks beautiful.

You merino does look beautiful. I really like the color, too.

Merci to both of you. I cannot get over how soft and beautiful this yarn is. Is it bad that I have it sitting beside me at my desk?
