First up for this week, I’m delighted to say I finished spinning the mixed BFL/silk roving from Pigeon Roof Studios I had on my wheel. The original roving was a 75/25 blend in the colorway “Dovecote”. I’m spinning this as part of a larger sweater-lot mash-up all in these gray-ish teal colors. The final skein is 381.5 yards and 3.7 oz. I’ll be adding it to the 870 or so yards I spun up earlier this summer for this larger lot. (That puts me at a total of 1251.5 yards, which is almost but not quite enough for the sweater pattern I have picked out, so I’ll move on and spin up the 8 oz of another colorway I have earmarked for this set. That’ll put me more than over what I need for yardage but I will then have skeins to choose from and I may use this Dovecote for something else.)
Next up, I did finish up sleeve 1 on the Foss sweater and I’ve started to work on sleeve 2. I also took the time to weave in all the ends except for the second sleeve, so I’ll just have a final few to do once it’s knit. I’m at that point in this project where I can see the finish line and I really just want to get it finished! I’ll be working on sleeve 2 this week and hopefully getting it finished up so I can get it overdyed and blocked because I am SO ready for sweater weather!
Finally, I didn’t get much time to work on the Stillness Shawl, since I was focusing on the other items on my to-do list, but I did make a wee bit of progress, working on the solid textured section at about the 10% mark.
That’s it for me this week, my friends! Hope you’re having a great one.
