Knitting and Spinning

I have been knitting more every day, now that I am back at work! LOL. Here is the finished pair of Mrs. Beetons, (see link in last entry), as well as some spinning I did with batt from Kathy Wither's ranch here in Tucson. She creates really interesting mixes of her wool and mohair and I am trying to get enough like this spun to make her crocheted shawl pattern. Her company is called Unique designs and her web page is here:

It is getting nice and cool here in the mornings, though still up in the 90's during the day, which all of us in Tucson are sooo tired of! I am enjoying being back to work and am trying to focus on knitting up my Christmas gifts. It is at this time of year that I wish I had started earlier!

I've not tried to wet my hand spun on the niddy noddy, but I would think if it is too tight it would be stretched too much and limp. If you want to wet it on the niddy noddy, I would make sure it isnt real tight, I prefer to tie it and hang it wet with a light weight bottle (with a triger). Some people dont put any tension on them at all. I guess it depends on how much memory you need in your yarn for your project. I dont know if you stretch it out that much if it's permanent or not.

So you love blue? I am seeing a lot of it here! I finished knitting up the wool I won from you-it is so soft and pretty-thanks for the 'gift'!
