Some of you will remember this post about 18 grams of fluffy fibers that I started to spin on my pink, top whorl, resin spindle about a month ago...
Well, I spun and I spun, and I spun up some more.
Then I plied it all up, 'til my shoulders were sore.
Then I wound it, and washed it, and hung it to dry,
And I skeined it up nicely, and admired its plies.
Then I thunk and I thunk, 'til my thinker was sore...
I had to knit it up, but what was it for?
Turns out, it's a scarf of beads and light lace -
To be worn in warm weather, close to the face...
The beads, how they sparkle! The colors, how pretty!
But it's still much too cold for light lace in my city. :(
So, for now, there it sits, as I wait for warm weather -
As cold, gray and rainy makes me don dumb, ol' sweaters...
Still, I long for the days of warm, sunny and breezy...
Days when no part of my body will freezy!
I'll adorn my bare neck with some light, beaded lace -
To be worn in warm weather, close to my face.
I must say, I am a little bit excited to wear this one! I'm also a little bit excited that the weather seems to be (finally) getting ready to make that beautiful turn from winter to warm...it's such a beautiful time of year! Walks and outdoor knitting, and fiber festivals, are all in my very immediate future! Perhaps I'll purchase more fiber to spin this year...? I think I am getting the hang of this!
What are you looking forward to as the weather changes?
Thanks for stopping by, and Knit in Good Health!
