Teyani and Klaus . My goal was to spin this 8 ounces into sock yarn sized yarn...not to make sock yarn (necessarily) but to see if I could do it (see, I also bought some superwash from them, and that will definitely be socks. If I can spin it sock yarn size).
The bad karma? Where to start. I spent 5 hours winding 800 yards of BMFA 'rio' into a ball yesterday: it is a very slippery rayon and I still have more than 300 yards to wind, but gave up. Not a great way to spend a day. I've started on the Lotus Blossom Tank from IK, but have had to start it twice because I keep making booboos. And I believe I made another one on the last row. Can't figure out whether to call it done on that and leave it til later, or to plow through. The mere sight of the words 'cast on 230 stitches' makes me shiver.
Anyway. Had coffee this morning with Jodie this morning. We're both excited about the new rpm sock pattern from Knitty and we're also having a Dye Morning next Tuesday. Additionally, we have a big summer surprise planned that we'll announce next week. Stay tuned! It will be fun!
