So I'm a day late...

Happy (now-belated) Valentines, y’all! Yesterday was my first day back at the office after quite a long time stuck at home with pneumonia, so I didn’t get around to writing up a post. My colleagues definitely spoiled me yesterday with the hugs and candy and treats. But, note to self: sugary food is not morning food! Between the sugar crash and the exhaustion from actually being out and about for the first time in awhile, I was so wiped out and headachy by the time I got home that I basically went straight to bed. Usually I’m good about not having sugar in the morning, but Valentines Day totally did me in.

Today I spun up my first little bit of colorful roving! I’d been working with the undyed stuff while I figured out a little bit of the mechanics, but I really wanted to play with the colorful stuff. I got the pink roving (“Candy Hearts” BFL from FreckleFaceFibers) with the goal of spinning up some Project Spectrum (and Valentine’s Day) themed yarn.

First colorful handspun

I’m so proud of this! I feel like I’m starting to get the hang of this. My singles are around Sport-DK weight, so hopefully when I turn this into 2-ply, it won’t be ridiculously bulky. Not that bulky yarns can’t be fun, but I’m just not all that into knitting with the superbulky stuff, and I do want to be able to knit things with the yarn I make. Who knows what this’ll turn into, eventually!

  1. I’m usually not a pink person, but I am loving that color! And your spinning looks great, too. I can’t wait to see what it will look like all plied up.
