This morning while photographing the first skeins of yarn I spun on my spinning wheel, I noticed the reflection of my Valentine roses in the granite counter top. Such a nice, unexpected thing.
Here is the yarn. It is about 250 yards of 2-ply wool. I haven't checked the wraps per inch yet, but I feels about sport weight. After a soak it became very soft. I love how it feels and am getting excited about working with it. I'll have to browse on Ravelry to find a suitable use for it. I do have a little more to ply. I need to wind it into a ball so I can pull from both the outside and the center to get more 2-ply.
Last weekend I visited my mom. Waiting for me at her house were bags of yarn from my sister's friend. This friend rescued the yarn from a house that was set to be demolished. There is an unbelievable assortment of very nice yarn. There were a dozen balls of Rowan Super Chunky Tweed in the bags. The rescuer has asked for an infinity scarf out of this blue wool. The majority of what I brought back with me is still in my car. Some of it is moth-eaten. I want to leave it in there until I'm sure there aren't any more moths lurking in the skeins.
I made a little progress on my silk scarf. I'm into the second band of eyelet lace.
I just love how shimmery it is.
True to form, I finished a project and gifted it without taking a final picture. I gave my niece the pug I made for her. I need to ask her to snap a photo and send to me.
