Spin Share

I'm working on spinning a little each day, and sharing my progress in this space on Fridays. 
Please join me! Share your spinning progress in comments- I'd love to see your work!

Over the first few days of the tour I spun 3 ounces and plied them into this first skein. I'm spinning more singles today and through the weekend, and hopefully by Monday or Tuesday I'll have more skeins to show you!

I'm really loving this Shetland and how it is spinning up. One of my boys thinks the sheepy smell of the wool is hilarious; the other is not amused. I think it's wonderful, of course!

Have you been spinning this week? 

Share a link to your spinning progress in comments so that we can come visit your beautiful work!

Another Pair

I'm mostly spinning right now because of tour de fleece, but I just can't take my wheel with me most places, so there is still knitting to be done. I finished the Fluormania Socks over the past weekend, and immediately cast on another pair of socks, a dark pair, to contrast the neon I've been staring at for the last two weeks.

I have several books going right now- in fact, I had to make a list the other day and purpose to finish the ones that are closest to their ends so that my brain won't feel so stretched. I don't typically read so many different things at once. So the ones I'm reading most frequently right now are An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon and Simplicity Parenting by Kim John Payne. The second book is for a book discussion where we are reading and discussing a chapter per week.

What are you knitting and reading this week?
