While on the surface it may not seem like a lot is going on around here,(no posts for five days, no news of finished objects) I have been madly working away behind the scene. I've been spinning, and knitting, and knitting, and knitting.....and frogging. A lot of frogging. A lot of reknitting. And frogging again. All that frogging doesn't leave a lot to take pictures of or blog about!
What have I been knitting and frogging? Swatches. The same ones. Repeatedly. I've begun my quest for my Master Knitter's Certification through TKGA
and I'm not making it easy on myself. I start and restart, finish something then reevaluate and frog. Many, many hours later I still only have the first 3 swatches done and I'm still looking at those ones thinking I could somehow do better.
Even though I haven't taken the time to post about it, there has been ONE (non-Master's related) finished object in that time period. I finished yet another of the "Modified Branching Out
" lace scarves, and with that came to the end of the laceweight llama
I had spun. This last scarf was dyed black.....but came out a lovely, deep chocolate brown. I'll try to get a picture of that up soon.
I've also picked up my husband's handspun pullover
again and I'm making decent progress on that. The front is done and blocked and I'm past the underarms on the back. It's looking really nice. Yes, yes....photos, I'll get to that...soon.
