Off to the Frog Pond and Spinning Love

I have decided to frog my Gloam cardigan simply because I just didn’t care for my choice of yarn for this project and will contemplate what yarn I want to use for it at a later date.  Honestly I think this design is better suited for worsted weight and not dk weight, but that’s my humble opinion. Do you ever frog a project over the yarn that you chose ?

As for my Silky Wool, the skein I was using has been recaked and I have decided it would be better for a Vodka Lemonade, a design by Thea Coleman.  I made this cardigan several years ago out of Madelinetosh DK but only had enough yardage for a short sleeve version.  Depending on my day, I may go ahead and cast on today or at least in the next few days.

Off My Wheel...

Yesterday I finally plied the Wound Up Fiber Arts Merino in Nest Egg and I am madly in love with the results.  I can see this as a shawl and I have my fingers crossed I can be consistent with my spinning for the remaining 4 oz that I need to spin.


The colors in this fiber is so soft and the fiber is scrumptious to spin.  This by far has been the best spinning project for the beginning of the fall season.  I will be starting the second 4oz soon, but need to finish spinning my Falkland so that it can be two plied.

I am also excited about finding SheepSpot on Mighty Networks, where I also a member of Louise Tilbrooks group, Everyday Knitter.  I enjoy sharing but in a more relaxed environment.  Both groups have been very inviting and chatty.

Until next time, be creative!
