since my last post, i haven't finished a single thing on my list of stuff... and i've added even more projects! at this juncture, i'd say its only safe to post when i actually finish a project... such as today when i successfully went from roving to yarn to a little glovelet in about 12 hours (not all in one day).
first let me show you the yarn:
now here is a little bit after i started knitting:
so i continued with the thick one, ripping out the skinny one, which caused a tapered effect. then i unscientifically sewed up the side around my thumb and voila!
this roving came with my spindle so i couldn't tell you what it was other than wool and crappy (they damaged the fibers by using chemicals to remove the vegetable matter, muy itchiness). i got two more bits of free roving with that, an equally crappy undyed white wool and a semi-good grey-brown stuff that looks like they just pulled a strip of a huge batt of wool. i think it would make a good "black" and white candy cane yarn like what i made during my class and i think i could crank out another one of these from it too.
anyways, i have other knitting projects to finish so i'll limit myself... for now ;)
