Time to fire up the creaky fingers. The brain rust squeaks for lack of oil.
I am grappling with my first knitting slump ever. It will run its course. It will end when it ends. No need to understand why it is there, no impulse to throw it on its back, put my idle fingers around its throat, finish it, so that I can bring knitting back to life.
The changing pattern rows kept her spicy. Plucky Knitter's Primo fingering (MCN) is well made, tightly spun yarn. It falls short of luxurious softness. The flip side is that it will wear very well. My Ravelry entry has blocking pictures, and a modeled human shot.
Yarn: Plucky Knitter Primo Fingering
Colorway: Nordic, 2 skeins
Needle: Knitpicks Harmony, size unrecorded
Started: 6/18/2011 - 8/30/2011
I got all charged up about spinning after SOAR last year. Still am. A quiet Six Pounds in 2012 theme runs through my work this year. I knew twelve pounds was a recipe for failure. The yarn pictured below is not part of the challenge. Spinner's Hill wool/silk, 3-ply - spun before SOAR, twist revived in a bathroom sink of water to see how much plying twist to use. (I do that now for all singles.)
Current process: kitchener Gary's BFL socks, warp the Baby Wolf for cotton placemats, spin Opulent merino/silk into a serviceable 2-ply. Many singles sit and sleep, as is my wont. Those are my next goals.
At least it has nothing directly to do with knitting.
