So today we are starting with some spinning! During my maternity leave I did very little crafting. It took me a while to figure out how to forgo wanting to pass out as soon as little CGR fell asleep. The first and only spinning I've done since she was born was this lovely silk merino! It's spun woolen from a politically incorrect batt. I had the colors stay in the same repeats and then I Navajo plied it. It's a little heavier than a worsted and I plan to make a hat out of it.
The next thing I've been working on is a hat for a friends infant. I made my friend a red hat for christmas and now making her daughter a similar one. It's a improvised pattern with some leftover sock yarn I had in my stash. I also used some of this yarn for a hat for CGR that I'll have to share a picture of her in soon.
The next thing I've started working on is prepping some lovely polworth fiber that kigeliakitten sent me as a gift! She saw on twitter I was interested in trying out this fiber and graciously sent me this! It's so soft and I can't wait to start spinning!
Well, that is what I am working on right now. I don't get too much crafting time but it's getting more and more as she gets bigger. Also my best friend sent me a hands free pump bra so while I pump at work I can now knit! That's about 20 mins or so a day which adds up over time.
Hope everyone is doing well! The pups, CGR and special k all say hello as well and hope I still have people who are out there wanting to read about little me aka barknknit. Now the crazy knitting dog mom. :)
