As if I need anything else to fill up my time or head with, I have been drawn to the dark side, and last week I got myself a drop spindle!!
I haven't even attempted to spin anything yet, it's actually a bit intimidating! I'm watching lots of youtube vids and sort of getting my head around it first :D
I got the kit at Twist Fibre Craft Studios. I went to Newburgh for a completely different purpose, but of course I had to go in and buy lots of yarn-y goodness.
3 balls of sock yarn. The pink was to go with the leftovers from a previous pair of socks actually (you'll be seeing them soon!), so that was totally necessary, otherwise I'd have had 1/3 of a ball left over. We can't have that now, can we????
I'm going to make some sort of cowl with the brightly coloured yarn, and am not sure about the reddy-orangey one yet, but it looks pretty :)
I also bought 3 balls of alpaca yarn! It's Artesano Alpaca 4 ply, and I'm going to knit a sweater for tribal dance with it. Big open garter stitch, I think it'll look quite cool. That's going to be my IntSweMoDo2010 project number 4. That was also a completely necessary purchase in order to make this project. :D
I love going in to Twist Fibre and browsing all the different yarn. Only trouble is it results in huge purchases like this :) At least I managed to resist the books and magazines, my queue is already quite big enough!
