I hate to say it, but I think I’ve lost my knitting mojo Lisa wrote about her lost mojo a few weeks ago and I was thinking, ‘Man, that sucks! I hope that doesn’t happen to me!‘ but alas, I think it has. I haven’t felt like knitting the past couple of days but I have felt like reading. I picked up Knitting Without Tears by knitting guru Elizabeth Zimmermann and Angels & Demons by Dan Brown. Mrs Zimmermann has some really great tips for sweater construction that I’d love to try! I’m also enjoying Angels & Demons so far (I’m only at chapter 6); it’s very interesting. On the flip side, I made a trek to Creative Fibers on Wednesday and this is the result:
My first yarn!!! Sure it looks like crap, but hey I’m learning. The spindle I bought was only $15 and the rovings were cheap too. Even the more luxurious rovings weren’t too expensive….not that I’d by cashmere rovings, but I’m just saying. Now if I can just get the hang of hand spinning! Have a great weekend!
