I've been spinning away. And I think I've got it now. Back in the fall I bought this beautiful roving from Jessica and I never got the hang of the spindle. But I've been practicing on the wheel and I made real yarn. Not good yarn but I can knit with it.
So I plied it all up and got this.
And then I set the twist and it looked like this.
And now it looks like this. Not perfect but I think I'm going to make this hat for Reese with it.
The yarn I'm working on now is really better, even Mr. Truck noticed.
And in case you wondered, I'm knitting socks. I'm almost done with the first one. They're Eunice by Cookie A. and they're quite challenging, also a bit shorter than I'm used to. I've been working on size 0 needles and I've snapped one already doing one of the cables. I just need to buy metal needles, the bamboo ones are really like toothpicks.
