This is the blue roving that I spun the other day. It is more consistent in thickness than the pink one. There just isn't as much of it. It will make a nice edging on mittens or something like that. I don't know what the difference was in the two fibers but the blue was more difficult to spin. It kept breaking apart. It sure is pretty though.
I finally started the front of the Corie intarsia sweater last night. I sweet talked myself right into it. I coaxed myself. I begged myself. Just let me get through this sweater.
I also got a lot finished on the second trekking sock at an open house I did yesterday. That pair of socks will be finished shortly and then I want to start a pair of the jaywalkers in the knit picks Cape Cod colorway. I've had that yarn in my stash for 2 years. It's time to use it.
I read the instructions last night for the Kepler I-cord neckband. I'm not getting it at all. It's greek to me. I guess I'll just keep reading it until it finally makes some sense to me. Wearing that on Saturday is looking mighty iffy.
