Master’s degree complete. Check!
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.

blueberry lime swirl……?
Congratulations. Have fun on your honeymoon. I love your blog. So cute.
congrats! I hope you will have a great honeymoon.
Holy cow, congrats on all fronts! I remember getting my Master’s and feeling on top of the world – ditto the getting married part! Have an amazing honeymoon! Oh, and I think blueberry and watermelon swirled sherbet would be perfect for the yarn!
Congratulations! And have a wonderful time on your honeymoon! When I look at your yarn I think lime and blueberry sherbet. It’s 86 degrees here and so humid so a waffle cone filled with that would be heavenly!
I think it’s a blueberry key lime tart.
Blueberry! Loved your post too!
Congratulations on the wedding and the masters degree! Have a blast on your honeymoon too! And by the way, I’ve just nominated you for the WordPress Family award. You can read more about it on my post: http://knitxpressions.com/2013/06/13/an-award-for-being-part-of-the-wordpress-family/ Thank you for being such a lovely virtual neighbour!
Masters… Marriage… Spinning on your honeymoon… Life just gets better ‘n better 🙂 Congratulations and wish you all the best ❤
The more you post about spinning, the more I want to break my self imposed rule of no spinning until I have a house (not an apartment).
I too saw ‘blueberry’ as soon as the picture popped up! Maybe with a little refreshing mint, just a tad so not to overwhelm it, and maybe alternate spoonfuls as you eat it! Like your blog. Happy honeymooning.
That sounds about right
I was going to say – “marriage. check” is this all we’re getting? Can’t wait to see the bride (or at least her scarf). Congrats on your master degree.
Congratulations! Your husband sounds wonderful:)
So many congratulations! All I can think of with the yarn is “delicious” – so no help there!
congratulations on all the achievements this spring – wow – how do you find time to spin? I don’t care what you call that yarn, it is absolutely beautiful!
congratulation and all my best wishes for your life with your husband. I would love to see some pictures of you during this day wearing your beautiful dress and shawl. have a wonderful honeymoon
Congratulations to both events! Have a wonderful, fibre- and love-filled honeymoon!
I think it would be pistachio bubble gum!
Congrats on the marriage & the degree!
Congratulations! I wish you a long and happy lifelong partnership with your husband. What an exciting time of your life it is!
Have a great weekend and by the way, I just nominated you for the WordPress Family Award 🙂
Congratulations on both your marriage and degree! I’m terrible at naming things, so I’m not much help there. It is yummy looking yarn though.
Utterly beautiful yarn! A hubby who lets you take your wheel on holiday has to be a keeper!
