Well I spun my Angora as planned. Two singles using a handful of white, then gold, then chocolate, then smoke. Then I plied the two singles together. Hmm not too pleased with it to be honest.
This goes along with the jacket, there may be booties, it all depends on the mood. The pattern for all these goodies are in the same page.
I finally got the Brother machine set up last night. Attached the ribber and started working on a Rainbow Sleeve sweater (for my fabulous self) this afternoon.
piccies will be up VERY SOON!
And I grabbed enough sock yarn to make 3 more sweater as well as some bulky yarn to make a nice tick pull over as well...
i'm in slc area. anyone else nearby?

While searching on-line for the book I mentioned in my last blog, I decided on a lark to search the catalogue of my public library for the out-of-print "Principles of Knitting" by June Haitt.
This is known in some places as the 5 Hour Baby Jacket, but I tell you it takes longer than that. You can make it in a matter of days.
... was finished yesterday. Yippee! And this afternoon, while I was at work (too busy to knit at work today, by the way!), UPS delivered a Brother KH-260 knitting machine with ribber!
