Random thoughts of a fiber enthusiast - mostly fiber related, sometimes coherent



That crud that has been going around finally caught up with me last week. I was down for the count with fever, chills, and all that nastiness. When I was finally able to sit upright, I pulled out some yarn I spun up from rainbow bright fiber that I won as a raffle years ago and started crocheting hexagons.

I don’t know if it will be a bed shawl or a lap blanket. I’ll see how far this yarn will go. I do know that my grist had changed from the start of the spinning project to the end — from light fingering to almost DK. This is because this was spun over the course of a couple of years. It was my island spinning project for that period of time. I should add that this is why you should keep a spinning record card.

I am alternating from the 2 sections of the spinning project to mix it up.

    Your rainbow hexagons look very cheerful. Bed shawl,or blanket, it will be nice to snuggle up in. Sorry to hear you’ve been down with the crud.
