So…I didn’t finish my Master Spinner Level 2 homework and had to get an extension. I think the cut-off date is November 1…tonight, if all goes according to plan (which it hasn’t been…I had to go to my office twice this morning because I forgot things there that were important to finishing; like my carders, my wool combs, and for the second visit, my scale!) I should be finished.
Earlier this week I decided I wouldn’t let myself do any personal knitting until I did finish it, which has been PAINFUL. Especially with the Through the Loops Mystery Sock Knit Along for Socktoberfest. I didn’t, however, stop myself from buying the yarn nor from starting to dye it. I purchased some Sandnes Mini Alpakka and it’s currently languishing just below 200 F in a pre-mordant bath of Alum and Cream of Tartar. I’m going to dye it with Cutch Extract from Maiwa.
And on Thursday I bought myself a little gift to hang out in the office. Yes, it’s a cactus, and yes, it’s got pink needles. Noice.
