Wednesday Progress Check {21}

Happy Wednesday!  Lots of project in progress this week, maybe too many, but all of them pretty satisfying.

This week's knitting and reading.
This week’s knitting and reading.

On the needles . . . The cotton cardi is almost to the underarm separation.  I really need to give this some extra attention, but I’m so easily distracted.  And, of course, there has to be a pair of socks on the needles.  It’s ~J’s~ turn for the next pair.  This is the vanilla latte pattern in The Unplanned Peacock Twisty Sock.  The colorway, called onyx, is black with shades of gray speckled throughout.  So pretty and such a nice feel.

On the bookshelf . . . Still reading Ten Beach Road and enjoying the story and characters.

Working to spin a bit thicker

On the wheel . . . Just a tiny bit of Greenwood Fiberworks BFL/silk in Huckleberry Truffle on the bobbin.  My default is to spin very, very thin yarn.  The plan is to work on spinning a bit thicker and get closer to a true fingering-weight 2-ply.  Progress will be slow and steady since there’s no deadline and I’m not in a big hurry.

In the journals . . . I’ve been experimenting with watercolors this week and enjoying every minute.  That’ll be another post.

So . . . What projects are getting your attention this week?

  1. Fabulous singles!
    As for my projects….none to speak of. I’ve got the most terrible summer cold and I am enjoying laying on the couch, watching TCM all day and feeling sorry for myself.


  2. What great colors on your wheel. Greenwood makes some beautiful fiber. Isn’t it hard to spin thicker? I find it a challenge lately.
