I was messaged on Ravelry this weekend that one of my skeins of yarn at Darn Knit Anyway is sold! I'm thrilled and she even said it was hard to choose just one. That is an awesome compliment. So I know at least one of my skeins has found a new home. And guess what? She initially was looking for local yarn to participate in a yarn swap with someone in New Zealand. So just maybe my humble skein of Red Sherbet is going to wing its way to New Zealand! I'm giddy...
Emily had her orthodontist appointment Friday to start the work needed before she has her bone grafting surgery this winter. Her upper jaw needs to be expanded before the bone grafting takes place. Lets just say that the dollar amount for the next 12-14 months means I better sell a whole lotta yarn! I do have insurance, but I'm sure there will be issues before it finally gets paid. But it will all work out.
And so you know I've been spinning like mad, here is part of the newest finished product. And look, I actually have PICTURES...we finally had some sun and I was able to get a good picture of the heathery purpley blue with odd random bits and bobs of red chenile thread thrown in. I still have probably 3-4 ounces left to spin, but this is finished. I'm going to try for a bit of a chunkier weight with the rest of the roving. Just to see the contrast between the two.
Now I need to get back to work, darn how that cramps my knittig/spinning style. But I'm doing cartwheels inside because I actually sold some of my very own yarn.
