Latest progress shot of the Dulaan raglan – it’s actually done now, save for the ends, but my camera batteries gave out before I could take a photo. It is so. cute. Obviously the sleeves are a different shade than the body, but who cares? It’s made with love. And lots of warm warm handspun.
I also knit a little hat out of leftover Lamb’s Pride Bulky – okay, so you can’t reallllly see it here, but it’s just a stockinette hat with a garter trim. Aw, Zeddy. Is that a Canadianism or what!
Annnndd…..I had been thinking about getting the plying head for my spinning wheel, to be able to do way huge skeins (250 g/8 oz!). It’s about a hundred bucks, plus tax, plus shipping. So what does the lovely Denny do? Dig around the house and come up with one!
This thing is HUGE. The yarn? That’s a normal yarn-doughnut-sized ball of rowan wool cotton, and the beginning of the back of VBC. Needs a bit of a cleanup and buffin’ up, and a bobbin, but hey – Denny rocks! Thanks Denny!
