The husband brought home some cold germs last week and lovingly shared them with me so my knitting and spinning and general doing anything motivation has been really, ultra low. I started my October Vesper KAL socks but haven't been bothered enough to take a photo of them yet, I am working on my sweater but it doesn't look like it yet. All these things add up to nothing interesting to show here.
Yesterday the sun was actually shining and I actually felt motivated to do something but instead of taking all the wonderful pictures I've been planning and posting them here, I cleaned the house. Don't get me wrong, it needed it but it does not make for good blog fodder.
Instead I might as well share the yarn I spun for the Blog Contest from my 400th post. My lovely winner; Jenna said she would like a 2-ply sport weight to knit a shawlette. I did my best to oblige.
I got close to 400 yards and even though it plumped a little when washed, I think she should still have about 350 yards or more for her shawl. I'm really happy with how it turned out and I hope she loves it.
The colors were soft and subtle enough that where they barberpoled, it still looks soft and lovely and subtle. I definitely think I need to look for Falkland to spin more often.
