Right after I came in here and talked about how I was going to post more, dammit, really, I mean it this time… my camera up and died. And given my frequent lack of eloquence with words, I feel like any blog post from me is rather lacking without pictures.
Luckily for me (and you, I suppose), this happened at about the same time that I opened up membership for a tiny little secret spindle club, the funds from which I was able to use to buy a very shiny new to me camera.
These are some mittens that I’ve been meaning to knit for years and years; I actually think I put together a kit for them before I even started this blog four (!!) years ago. I needed something quick and fun before starting my next work project and these definitely fit the bill. Plus, even though it’s 100 degrees now, I will be very grateful that they’re ready to wear by the time winter rolls around.
These socks actually belong to my dear Sandi, who not only knit my pattern, she also let me graft her toes when I saw her this weekend. I may have fan-girled a bit.
This is Sandi’s Sidekick, which is really a fantastic wheel that I may have considered grabbing and running off with. I’m pretty sure she could’ve taken me down, though, plus it was her birthday party so that seemed kind of mean.
This is my Tour de Fleece spinning; for the first time EVER I think I will actually reach my TdF goal. Which may be helped by the fact that my goal was to spin one single skein. Of sock yarn. On the wheel. I can’t fail with standards this low!
And this is one of the new spindles from the 3d printed line (which will have a name eventually, I swear). This particular one is already sold, but there will be plenty more where it came from in the next week or two when I launch the full shop. (Note to self: come up with a name for the spindle line before launching the full shop.)
That’s all I’ve got for the moment, though rest assured that now that I’ve got a new camera, I am taking pictures of pretty much everything, and there’s all sorts of exciting stuff going on, so I really will be back with more. Seriously. I mean it. Don’t look at me like that.
