I just wanted to post a note to my wonderful commenters. I read all comments posted to my blog, actually I have it set to forward to my email. If you have an email attached to the profile you comment with, most likely I'll send you a shout back that way. Typically I don't comments to my comments, because, well I'm not sure they are even seen by the commenter ... do you go back and look for responses?
Anita asked if I've spun anymore ... nope. Not because I don't want to and I'm glad you asked, I'll get to that soon! Denise mentioned that practicing for short periods, but *frequently* is how you get good at it, that's excellent advise!
Thanks for your comments on the stenciling. I hope to post pictures of the boxes completed soon! Maybe even in use as the storage containers they were purchased for :o)
Lots of you commented on how lovely the yarn was for Saroyan. Can you believe its Lamb's Pride Worsted?? I've used this variegated type before and just love the colors!
I dug out my Nugatory socks this weekend and started knitting on those again. Luckily one sock was at the decease for the gussets, but I left it in a very easy state to figure out where I was in the pattern. I was looking though that pattern and saw where it said to put markers, there were markers on the needles, this section said, at this point you have 80 stitches ... so I counted and I had 80. The other sock was already past the gusset and on to the foot so that was easy.
This is a beautiful pattern and really great for hand dyed yarn. This particular yarn I dyed myself. What started as a horrible mess, ended up beautiful with overdyeing.
