wednesday, a sad day


started the day knitting a few more row
just to find out, i made a mistake … and couldnt find out what or wehre or why, it must be in the chart somewhere
so - unpicking it all 13 rows :( :( now i am really annoyed and frustrated, because i have nooo clue where i went wrong
expect a few days - or more - to pass before i can knit on here


so i sat down and knitted more squares and finished the 4th batt of merino silk mix, its now all ready to be spun


then the first try to card the big pile of grey wool, and this works fantastic, i really like how it looks so far
and before bedtime, i spun a tiny tiny bit :D

rainy monday


i made the spikes for the arms or my yellow top, and started the body round,
this made my brain smoke, so i blocked the spikes, and knitted a bit more of my shawl, 8th row started


and then i was bored enough of all my going projects, i dragged down my drumcarder
and my 100 g black merino, and 100 g black merino/mulberrysilk mix, and started to blend them together
why you ask, well i got some blue bats in the same mix, and i got a shawl in mind, which i gonna do with this

yesterday i finished the top part of my summer tank top
the next few days will be spent to knit the little arm accents, and then 40 or 50 cm of body … this will be sooo boring


then i played with my box of wool - made a sample strand of each for a friend
braided them all, and spun a tiny little 4ply sample - maybe you can see it on the gray pack in the foto ?
its just enough to feel if i want to cuddle or not :D


and i started the 7th row of my shawl
