Silly Me, I quit the full time job thinking that I would have more time on my hands and who would have known that this is not the case? I had these high hopes that I would have all this knitting time now and unfortunately I was wrong. The part time job I picked up has been a handful but fun, oh so fun. I'm sure it will get old but refreshing old skills and learning new things always excites me. For those that aren't in the loop, I went PRN (as needed) at my dispatch job and only pull a couple shifts a month now and started working at a friends restaurant. I just wanted to pay my bills and relax, I won't go into all the stupidity occurring at the real job but I needed an escape but still needed a bit of money so here I am working for tips again. I'm sure in the future I will go back to the real world but until then, I'm enjoying myself.
I did manage to finish the above scarf late last night, block it while I slept and get some pictures of her this morning. This is my handspun fiber called Basket of Plums from Huckleberry Knits. I cannot say enough wonderful things about all the fiber I've received from Scartlet... If you're a spinner, go there. Ogle and buy.
I also finished up my Wensleydale fiber from Huckleberry Knits. I don't have any ideas for this stuff yet but I'm sure something will come. It's only about 200yards and has more of a handspun feel than my other recent yarns due to my trouble drafting it since I've never used this fiber before. I thought that was going to deter me away from liking it but it gives it a charm that truly appeals to me. I promise, it wasn't the fiber's fault I had issues with it. I was tired and should have walked away but I just wanted to spin.
Not being able to get a color true picture of it has reaffirmed that I need to make a light box for finished projects. There are some lovely teals in here you just can't see...
Now I get to dip into some fiber that a friend bought me for Christmas from one of my favorite shops in the whole world! Thanks Rocky Mountain Mens Knitting Retreat for introducing me to more addictions... A bunch of wonderful enablers.
