Now we’re off on the honeymoon tomorrow. The honeymoon is not about knitting and spinning, but you won’t be able to tell that from looking at my luggage. I am packing:
- My Louet Victoria portable spinning wheel. I love that it’s carry-on sized and that the bag has extra space to squeeze in essentials, like toothpaste and underwear.
- Yarn and needles for a shawl
- Yarn and needles for socks
- Extra spinning fiber
We’re headed to Oregon. My indulgent husband has no problem with me taking a couple of days to go to Black Sheep Gathering in Eugene, OR, June 21-23. He’s a keeper. Let me know if you’re going to be there. It would be fun to say hello to blog pals.
What with school and wedding planning there hasn’t been much time for fiber lately. I squeezed in a little plying the last few days and came out with this:
I wanted to correct my under-plying issue. I think I’m starting to get better.
This is a two-ply merino. I’ve lost the tag the fiber came with, so let’s just call it pretty.
It looks edible, like ice cream or a jellybean.
If this yarn were a flavor, what flavor would it be? Blueberry?
Sorry, no wedding shawl photos yet. I need to pry the photos off the cameras of my relatives. Soon, I promise. Soon.
