This week I have been busy with Nerd Wars projects. I posted two of the yarns that I completed after last Friday's post. I also cast on my Moving Target socks. I thought my knitting mojo was gone but I am cranking through this first sock. I have another evening of knitting and I will be at the heel. Of course, this pattern calls for an after-though heel. I've never knit one before. I am eager to learn this new technique.
I am also gathering all of my yarn for the Roof Sit Stash Sale at Your Local Yarn Shop in Battle Creek. For the last few years, Linda and KellyJ have opened their yarn shop up to one of our local radio stations for the Roof Sit Fundraiser to assist The Haven of Rest. They allow a certain number of booths in the parking lot to sell their yarn and fiber. You know...that stash that YOU HAD TO BUY that now sits in a tub mocking you. Well, they have figured out a way for it not to mock you. Sell it! Trade it! Barter with it! All the vendors pay a small donation which goes directly to the Roof Sit fundraiser and all of the buyers pay that same donation to buy said yarns. If I remember from last year, they call it the FEEL GOOD FIVE Win/Win/Win
They have the event on the second weekend of WWKIP (World Wide Knit in Public) so knitters will bring their lawn chairs and hang out at the yarn shop to share with the public, especially the public who is supporting The Haven, the love of knitting. Win/Win
I shall be busy cranking on my new socks. When I need a break from my sock knitting, I may get out my newest tool of the trade. I am now the proud owner of a Jensen Turkish Spindle. SQUEAL! I have been drooling over his spindles for quite some time and I love the look of the Turkish spindle. Mine is made out of Amazon Rosewood and weights 1.51oz. I can't wait to start spinning yarn on it. It's one of my Tour de Fleece challenges to create beautiful yarn on it.
With all of the spinning and knitting, my weaving was put on the back burner this week but I hope to get those spa cloths done next week. I have a daughter who is eager to steal my Cricket loom for her own weaving adventures. Speaking of adventures...it's time to share yours! Link in and share your Fiber Arts Adventures.
