If I was knitting little shawls for my sheepy around-the-house ornaments, this would be a finished object! But I'm not, that is a swatch. And if I was swatching for a new lace shawl, then the swatch would have made me happy and I would have cast on by now. While I am swatching and the swatch did make me happy, the swatch was a sample of some spinning, and now I just need to continue on. With the spinning. And the plying.
A Spirit Trail Fiberworks Club offering, this is an alpaca/merino/silk blend that I started spinning on a drop spindle last spring. Like most of what I do, I was going great guns practically non-stop until, well. I stopped. I have three pretty full cops of singles that are dead, dead, dead, but I plied up a bit and decided, before I plied the whole bunch and ended up with a lot of crap, to sample it. While it isn't the best spinning on earth, I love it. It is soft and knit up so beautifully that I can't wait to finish the spinning and plying. It is a fairly respectable laceweight, which is what I was going for. If I wasn't feeling so lazy I would get up and do a wraps per inch measurement, heck, even I'd like to know that, but I'm just too tired to find out now. Someday.
Thirty-six. Maybe tomorrow I'll show another finished object! Could happen.
