the wave

I’ve been thinking and sketching about waves and boat wakes a lot since I went to the Richard Estes exhibit at the Portland Museum of Art.

The June Spunky Eclectic fiber club theme was a less watery wave

The oranges this year have all been different and equally amazing–the bright terracotta color on some especially nice Falkland top will be perfect for socks. Ravelry deets are here.

I made 2 different 3 ply sock constructions: a chain ply and a random 3 ply. In my list of future blog stuff is a little tutorial about how I randomize a braid for spinning without it becoming too muddy–eventually!

While I originally conceived this blog as a freeform diary of my wool work–spinning, knitting, design, and wherever else I go, I’m trying to come up with more regular weekly or monthly features and posts on common topics. An editorial schedule, for lack of a less formal way to put it.

Any thoughts? Topics you’d like to see me write about?

  4. Beautiful handspun, I loved seeing the difference between the chain ply and true 3 ply (I recently did a similar experiment and it is always fun to see how plying can change your spinning)!
