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.
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!
