The Oddball Sock is coming along pretty well:
Lorna's Laces, Cherry Tree Hill and Koigu KPPPM. I have discovered that I need to read up on colorwork and yarn changes because there is a Stupid Knitters Trick going on near the colorchanges where I switch yarn and I'm not sure what's up with that.
I imagine that I'm doing something wrong. Anyone? Bueller?
My plying is shit, but I also haven't set the twist and I know it will even out a lot when that happens. Superwash merino handpaint from Zero's Etsy store. I had a lot of trouble Andean plying this. It broke a lot and that's hard to deal with when you're have the yarn wad on the wrist going on. I think because of the shorter staple and the inconsistencies in my own spinning style - areas where it was under spun just could not hold up to the weight of plying with the spindle.
And then the last two skeins of that Spunky Eclectic in a colorway I cannot remember the name of. The finished yarn reminds me of the sky at sunset or maybe dawn and I spun it with fairly long stretches of color integrity so I am going to try to knit it into something gradient and dawnlike. I have 3 more skeins in this colorway spun up and set.
I can't even begin to describe how much I love my new camera. I also can't even begin to describe how much I wish I had my birthday spinning wheel. I really need to narrow it down soon. I'm just afraid of buying one I'll end up not loving.
I know this is a process but lately all I can see is what's wrong with my spinning. I think it's time to take some classes.
