What has gotten my attention you ask? I am just bowled over and fascinated with the gorgeous handspun yarn creations that I see people posting on their blogs and etsy. Therefore - Must. Learn. To. Spin.
For instance - the talented Natasha with her Luxe yarns (she is whipping up something for me as I type this - will post about it at a later date). Then there is FeltStudioUK - purchased the yarn from the very helpful Cam at The Urban Knit - and made the scarf shown.
I love this scarf! So warm, light weight, and cuddly. Took me all of about two hours last Friday evening while watching a movie with Mr. Plucky (a.k.a. Bob) and I have hardly taken it off since then. 89 yards knit stockinette with a few garter stitches thrown in on size 19 needles. Funny how something so completely simple can turn into something you just love and use all the time. So, goals for this Spring (all the while knitting baby hats and socks):
- Get spindle (suggestions welcome)
- Perhaps buy book (again, suggestions?, anyone?)
- Practice, practice, practice
