New Is Better
I don’t like leftovers, I’d rather open a new bottle of orange juice than finish the open one, and I always want to start a new project instead of finishing a current one.
The dark tweed pullover is plain stockinette. The colorblock sweater is too. I had three empty Robin-wheel bobbins. I had beautiful new roving that Franklin sent me as a gift. That led to only one conclusion. I had to start spinning the Franklin-fiber.
For proper documentation purposes, this is 5 ounces of Shepherd Wool Top from Lorna’s Laces. It is a superwash merino top, dyed in colorway “Camouflage.”
I needed to see how the singles would look when spun up.
It spun up so nicely, I continued to spin more.
Before I knew it, I had finished spinning over half the top.
With another empty bobbin on the Robin wheel, I couldn’t stop myself starting the second bobbin’s worth.
Now, I just have this little bit to finish when I get back from vacation.
Of course, I still have to ply the singles and scour the yarn and knit up either socks or gloves or a hat or something.
Regarding the Nelda Davis workshop at Twist, Betsy writes, “Oh Jeez, Queer Joe, thank goodness Twist wasn’t there when I lived in New Hope…which corner is this on…I lived in the house on the SW corner of that intersection…I think it is now a real estate office”
Twist is on the Northeast corner of Route 202 and Aquetong Road. Right across the street is a Real Estate office on the Northwest corner. The Southwest and Southeast corners are still residents, as far as I know.
Feel free to have outrageous comment-wars while I’m gone. I’ll look forward to reading you comments when I get back (or sooner, if I can).
