I’ve been making slow progress on the two blankets that I’m knitting.
Surprisingly, this simple ribbed blanket has been given me the most issues since I keep making silly mistakes. Sighs… I’m taken a time out from that until I regain my senses.
I managed to squeeze a few rows of this tuck stitch blanket and am hoping to knock out a few more rows later today.
Aren’t the colors lovely? Guess what, it’s my own handspun yarn! Yes… there are overspun and underspun places with this yarn, but you know what? I don’t care! I’m enjoying spinning and, in time, I know I’ll improve. Also, I had fun spinning every delightful inch of this little skein. This is the first yarn that I made, that I’m actually thinking of knitting into something “nice”. Of course the “nice” item will have to be a tiny project. After all, there’s not much to knit with! 😜😆
I’m a new spinner!
Almost three weeks ago, I purchased my Kromski Sonata, which I’ve named Ruth, from the Woolery. Since last Thursdays private lesson at the CloverHill Yarn Shop, I’ve committed to spinning daily. I’m really thrilled with the improvements that I’m making. Before long, I’ll be knitting, weaving or crocheting with my own handspun yarn.
What am I reading? Repentance by C. John Miller.
“Repentance begins at conversion but doesn’t stop there. It isn’t penance, self-effort or condemnation, but an ongoing attitude for daily living in Christ, says John Miller. In this new edition John’s widow, Rose Marie, adds an epilogue telling of John’s own journey of living out repentance on a daily basis.”
I’ve reread the first chapter a few times. It was recommended to me by a seminary graduate and I’m enjoying it immensely.
