First off-the Queen Silvia is finished!
Sorry about the picture being dark. It was getting dark on the porch when I finished pinning this out to block. I'll take better pictures soon!
I started a new shawl after the pinning was done. It's Evelyn Clark's Angel Lace Shawl. I am using Silky Merino, a 50% merino/50%silk blend laceweight yarn from Blackberry Ridge Woolen Mill in Wisconsin in the Pale Lilac color. I have 19 rows done so far.
My newest thing is that I am learning to spindle spin. I ordered a Learn to Spin kit from Thomas Golding. Here it is:
It's really pretty addicting. This is my first attempt at this. The yarn is pretty thick yet. I am going to find some pretty pink to spin and ply with this to make a winter hat. The wool roving included with the kit is grayish Coopworth wool. I really like the spindle. This is bad. Really bad. I feel a whole new addiction coming on. I am already planning my custom made 2" spindle. I like this morning glory one:
I better save a lot of money for it. As my father said, "Don't buy cheap tools". No problem there.
