Yarrrrny stuff!

Did a bit of spinning last week! First up is a custom order, Don't Dream It's Over....200g of merino/cashmere/silk spunover 3 days:

Then while my spinning mojo was on the rise I started and finished a 3ply, 2 bobbins of Sweet Dreams cashmerino and one bobbin of black merino....150g 300m

In knitting news I had to frog a whole repeat out of my Heartland Lace Shawl, and it's finally back at the row where I was before it all went wrong, I've done 5 repeats, I may do one more before the edging, but those long rows get me in the end, and I'm back at the wheel doing some more custom spinning!

Edited to add if you are on Ravelry you can go here to see what happened to Don't Dream It's Over. I just love the the title, made my day!

Singin The Blues Encore!

This is my quickest scarf yet! I started weaving Thursday afternoon and took it off the loom late Friday night!

I have only used a third of the merino/angora (I had 200g) so I'm considering either warping up another scarf and using the handspun for warp this time, or using the handspun for both.

I'm having trauma with my Heartland Lace Shawl....almost 5 repeats and the last couple of days I've been frogging more than I've been knitting, I'm hoping to get a row right soon, I almost frogged the whole thing in frustration earlier, it's just been driving me crazy, good advice would be to put it in the naughty corner, but that just leaves the Swallowtail....and that still needs some quiet time.
I have just got the right shade of blue dangles for the Hanging Garden Stole but really ought to have some simple projects on the needles for KnitJam.
