knitting, Spinning, Wool

Mitt progress

I’ve made decent progress on the teens belated birthday mitts. The first mitt is done and second is past the thumb split. Ive been idling on these a bit while getting ready for tour de fleece and our busy schedules at home.

This project usually gets pulled out at night while we watch TV (still watching Supernatural with hubby). Especially since the spinning bug bit me again. I found the perfect carry bag for my EEW nano to carry to appointments so my spinning got to travel with me this week.

Miss 4 year old started OT this week so my spinning came along for the ride. Sadly, no muggles this time. I always laugh at people’s reactions to me when I craft in public.

Today, my nano went to work with me (yarn/craft shop perk!). My new hot pink orffice reducer came today as well as there hot pink bobbins. Makes me love my little nano even more. Tonight we skipped out SPN tv time as I wanted to rest in bed so I grabbed my spinning bag. Definitely an e-spinner perk!

I’m still washing fleeces and plan to get more done tomorrow. No word on my drum carder yet, I’m doubting it will be here before the July 4th holiday and in time to prep for TdF. Trying to set up some back up plans and should be able to hand card enough to get me started. I may need to adjust my plan to spin only SE2SE wool though. We will just have to see.

Until next time, laugh often, love deeply and knit the day away!
