More Handspun

I finished up that fat cat knits batt last evening, and it was dry this morning!

It’s rather interesting! I do love all the bits and bobs. I have 265 yards of 2 ply on this one.

I began spinning some of the orange batts I made awhile back on my wheel. I am not thrilled to pieces with the color, but I have to admit that the batts are scrumptious to spin. It’s these:

I also tucked a few away in my carry on bag along with a support spindle in case I decide I want to actually finish up TdF. I mean, even 10 minutes a day in the upcoming days would do it!

I also grabbed a quick photo of where I am in the knitting of the green spectra scarf. Because it’s too pretty not to grab a photo of!

I packed the red one to work on during the plane ride itself, but I don’t know, I might have to switch! This one is too charming to put down! This is my last day of work before vacation and I couldn’t be more thrilled about that. I got some shopping done last night, picked up 3 pairs of capris. However, I tried to do that trick where I try on one pair, like them, and pick the same cut in different colors. Got them home and realized that 2 out of 3 don’t fit all that well, so I may head back tonight to return them. Blech. I hate shopping, and sometimes my shortcuts become longcuts. That’s exactly what happened yesterday.

But mostly tonight I need to be working on laundry so I can get packed! So much laundry. ALL the laundry.

Meanwhile, I hope you all enjoy the rest of your week!

  1. The spinning looks great – I like those blobs of color as well. And the orange batts look like they will make some interesting yarn. Not my favorite color, either, but it always seems to look good when it is handspun. Spectra is just looking FABUOLOUS! and I bet the red one does as well. 🙂

    Sorry about the shopping, I hear you. I do most of my clothes shopping in catalogs and online, because I am not easy to fit and I don’t like cute little trendy clothes. Which means I pay a lot for shipping, and am always returning things. But at least I don’t have to go to the store. 🙂

    I hope you have a wonderful vacation and get some spindle spinning done!
