spinning and more spinning
Northbound Knitting in 'Caribbean'
2-ply sport weight / heavy fingering (15 wpi)
The Northbound Knitting group on Ravelry had another spin-along, and there was a caribbean coloured blend or a citrus blend to choose from. As much as I try to abandon my persistent colour preferences of blues and greens, I couldn't pass this up. The rambouillet was such a different texture than I'm used to - very spongey. I think this skein will make a fabulous pair of socks. I have another 4 oz of this (2 braids in top photo) I haven't yet spun, because I'm too anxious to get this on the wheel...
I have 20 oz of this
The boy and I went to Hunger Games on Friday night (great movie. I recommend reading the trilogy) and now we both have the same cold. But it's spring break and we're home this week, so it doesn't really matter. Spring cleaning time!
