I started the “Waving Lace Socks” from Interweave Spring 2004 – it’s beauuuuutiful.

It’s working up super quick too! And now that I have the main chart in my head, the knitting should be smooth, beautiful sailing.

I also started a cardigan, which I’m calling the Banana cream cardi – out of Lion Brand Cotton-ease in Banana Cream. I’m wicked creative with the titles, eh?

It’s just going to be a bottom-up raglan cardi, to the measurements of one of my favourite store-bought sweaters. I think I’ll do some sleeve detail too. This is my lecture knitting – large amounts of stockinette stitch.

Hm, progress proceeds on the Sapphire tank, which is almost to the armholes. I haven’t quite decided what I’m going to do, but I’ve got a bit of an idea. I want to work on the corset tonight too – although I’m fading fast. Busy day at work.

There’s been little spinning progress these last couple of days, but I taught two people to spin today at the store! Here are some of the yarns I spun up last week.

The “Crushed Grape”, 394 yards.

“Tulip”, 446 yards. I can’t decide whether I like it or think it’s ugly. I really liked how the roving looked, but not so sure about the yarn…at least it’s soft!

    I think Tulip is beautiful! Of course everything else looks great too. I’m hoping I can get together $40 so I can take a spinning class at my lys in August. I really want to learn. Not sure I’ll ever get as good as you though…

    I lust after the Crushed Grape — it’s scrumptious. And your spinning is so even. Absolutely beautiful Laura.
