So here's my question, well two questions really . . .
1) What do all you knitter/blog readers out there do for a living
2) If you could do anything, what WOULD you do for a living.
post your comments, I really want to know what everyone's dream job would be.
When not daydreaming about playing with yarn all day as a job, I've been playing with yarn all day as a hobby. I'm still spinning up that yummy wool, alpaca, mohair I bought on e-bay. Here's my first spool full:
Here's my first plyed spindle full. I used the Andean plying technique.
I ordered a niddy noddy and a "Handy Andy" (a tool for Andean plying). I can't wait till they arrive.
I've also been playing with different textured stitches to see how they felt. I'd like to design a felted purse with textured stitches. Here's a swatch I made with a bobble and a popcorn stitch.
And post felt:
I used some crappy hand spun so it felted REALLY fuzzy. The popcorn stitch completely flattened out, and the bobbles felted a weird shape. I'll keep experimenting. I want to design something cool, but not too weird.
Back to my strange two-way sweater. I'm almost finished. That makes it a 7 day sweater. Not sure it was worth 7 days though. I'll post some pics tomorrow.
