I cast on my next shop sample this morning in Elsebeth Lavold Hempathy, a Hemp/Cotton/Rayon blend
I don’t know when I’ve ever felt more inept.
Patience, grasshopper. Mastery of new fiber will come with time and practice. What’s the worst that can happen? Unravel and start over?
I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life
and that is why I succeed.~~Michael Jordan
On the upside, my spinner friend LeAnn surprised me with these gorgeous wool and rayon yarns this morning when we met at Jackson’s Corner
Velveen Fit for a Queen, 78% wool 22% rayon, net weight 2 oz (56.5 grs)
On the back it says, Super Yarn Mart! Los Angeles Ca 90015 (the shop no longer exists)
I will need to wind a skein up onto my niddy noddy to get the yardage information. A potential candidate for the fingering-weight yarn
a Shiriku Tsui-do, from Vicki Square’s latest book Knit Kimono Too.
Before leaving for spring break tomorrow, our children are sleeping over at their friends.
Conveniently, it’s the Harry Potter Marathon Weekend on ABC Family! Woot Woot…One day, one deal! Hubby and I may actually watch the whole thing, uninterrupted, at last. Are you excited for Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2?
We certainly are!
Oh…pure mindless self indulgence.
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
