Stitchy McItchy reporting in... I've been miserable all weekend with a severe case of Poison Ivy. This truly sucks because it means I haven't been spinning as much as I would like to.
I did do a little though - I mean it would take a LOT not to try out my new baby. Here is my first handspun on my very own wheel!
The roving was actually a gift - thanks Jolene!
I decided I need some more 'stash' just in case.... So I headed over to Cloverhill and got me some Mama-E goodness!
Isn't it luscious! It's Mama-E's merino tencel blend. Love the color! I got some oil too - just to make sure everything stays nice and smooth.
I met up with Amie over there and she also brought me a virtual spinning smorgasboard!! She brought me a sampling of all kinds of fiber, mohair, cotton, flax, mohair locks and some wool from a sheep at the Philadelphia zoo! You're the best Amie!!! Thanks!!! I can't wait to try it all.
In the mean time - what's a girl to do when she's laying in bed covered in Calamine lotion laying nakid in bed with the ceiling fan on high? (Ok - TMI)... Why - Knit lace of course! Here's my mystery stole with clue 2 completed. I finished it in one day - since I had nothing else to do to keep my mind off the itching - I worked on this on Saturday.
I did go to the doctor today and got a course of steriods and some Zyrtec. I hope it goes away soon!
