A lot of fibery progress this weekend. I finished the front of Kinsale:
Tonight I’ll do a three-needle bind-off on the shoulders and then pick up the stitches for the neckband.
I also spun the second half of my Targhee roving.
I’ll probably ply it tomorrow. I’m looking forward to seeing how it looks plied. The singles are a bit slubby — there were lots of anomalies in the roving, but I think it might look quite nice. We’ll see!
And look at these beautiful rovings!
I’m thinking about plying the red with the variegated after spinning the singles. I think they look very nice together
About the GGH mohair . . .
Great minds think alike! I also want to knit that lovely green wrap sweater. But did you buy exactly the same yarns as in the mag? My monitor’s colors must really be off, because it looks greyish, not green. To make matters worse, at www. ggh-garn.de, the shade card no 76 is grayish, not a light green as no 54.. I wonder if there’s something wrong with the pattern?
I bought color #76, which is the color used for the sweater in the magazine. Some of the confusion might stem from the fact that I lightened the magazine photo a bit, to show the sweater detail better.
And then, the color in my photo of the yarn is a bit off. I have a hard time getting good color representation, particularly when I take photos at night (which I often do, being at work all day). The flash distorts the colors somewhat, and if I take a pnoto without the flash, the slow shutter speed makes it difficult not to move the camera and get a blurry photo.
Here’s a photo of the yarn, taken under my Ott light. It’s pretty accurate on my monitor.
And it looks pretty much the same as the photo from last Thursday.
Does your kitty let you kiss her belly? Well if you want to kiss her belly. I just think belly fur is so inviting, it seems so warm and snuggly. Yes I’m odd.
I guess that makes me odd too, because I am particularly fond of warm kitty belly fur. And lucky for me, Lucy does seem to like having her belly kissed. Unless she is in a playful mood — then I’m likely to get swatted by one of her chubby paws.
