spring weekend

Finally we had a weekend full of family, fun and sun.  The only thing missing was the lad, still two weeks away from returning.  My sister and brother-in-law came up for the long weekend and we had a great time exploring Chinatown, Deep Cove…went for a walk at Cates Park…did a lot of eating and crafting and enjoying the weather.

I’ve been spinning again and chose this fibre, inspired by the springy colours.  I’m not sure what this fibre is.  It was in my large drawer of stash and was missing its label, but I felt drawn to these colours.  I’m thinking maybe it was an extra sent by Funky Carolina, but I could be wrong.  It feels like merino to me, but again, I could be wrong.  But I did love spinning this and it has gotten me back in the groove.  And as usual, I forgot to take a picture of the full braid.  So in between bobbins, I snapped a quick one of the second half of the fibre to be spun.

I finished plying this over the weekend and today I got it washed and while I was cleaning up my back garden, I hung it out to dry.  It sure doesn’t take long in the sun and with a bit of warmth in the air!

What I have is 421 yards of a fingering weight yarn.  What shall I knit with it?

  1. I was thinking fingerless mitts too, or a lacy little shawlette. We had a wonderful weekend with you guys.

  2. Wow, those colours look gorgeous! Hah, I know the problem of spinning something and don’t know what to do with it afterwards. My rescue is always to knit little bags for something – at the moment it is a “Kindle-coat” 😉
