Well, I am done the cuff now and started on the body. That working with 2 yarns was a little difficult for my arthritic right thumb. The joint is a little inflamed so I going to take a day off and go groom some of my bunnies. Every 16 weeks they need to be sheared and I haven't finished spinning what I had from 16 weeks ago. Winter sucks for those who have fibromyalgia but now that spring is coming I can get into the swing of things once again. Received notice that there is a rabbit show coming in spring so must decide if I will participate or not.
As for the stocking I am still not sure of the colours. Looks as one fella said, Victorian. This for me means embellishing with beads when all is said and done. I think it will be pretty but still remaining skeptical. Tomorrow hubby is taking me to the big flea/antique market in the city so I will be on the lookout for antique buttons and things.
The brightly coloured yarns you see here are for the shorts I am going to make. Bright and hideous I know but the worst part is that they are acrylic. As the shorts will be a first for me I didn't want to ruin my good handspun yarns. I can always use them for an eye catcher at my table for the farmers market this summer. I may change my mind and use it to experiment with entrelac.
