WIP Wednesday/Yarn Along
When motivation to complete one project fails, see top right hand corner Shaw's cove, then the ultimate procrastination ensues: doing a little of everything.
I really needed a mindless stash-busting project and lately I've been inspired by Ivy at Pumpkin Spins and Evelyn at Project Stash to start a big blanket. A while ago my mom gave me her entire stash of wool (almost doubling my stash) and I've decided to make a large super warm entrelac blanket. Entrelac is mindless and easy in that I don't need a pattern and its enough to keep my interest.
Next, in the top part of the photo you will see the spinning I am doing for Tour de Fleece. Lets just say, there is a reason I'm not the team anchor, lol. But i'm trying, but its not happening. On the spinning note though, some of you may have seen that earlier tonight I posted that my knitting machine was for sell. I didn't think anyone would want to buy it and I already had someone contact me wanting it. So i'm using that money to save up for a spinning wheel! Soo excited!! I can't wait!
Lastly, the white fabric in the hoop is the beginnings of learning how to embroider. For several months now I've envisioned this intricate bag that mixes quilting, sewing, embroidery and applique and the last skill I need is embroidery.
I've got some good projects started now I just need to build up the steam to finish some neglected wips, oh and that shawl! And the neglected Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers that I am still reading!
I hope you all can join Ginny's Yarn Along and Tamis Amis's WIP Wednesdays.
