Okay good. One week down. I still feel good. Finally 2 weeks into January more job listings are being posted.
I keep spinning and machine knitting. I’m running low on supplies for both!
I got a bunch of spindle parts. I love a place called Lee Valley.
I made up these spindles for now. Highest part cost is $2 per spindle.
I started using the biggest wheel one with 100% hemp fibre in a batt. Its a little wiggly at the bottom when the spin reaches its max.
So I have a small pile of hand spun fibres piling up. From left to right; hemp, hemp banana (that I’m planning on plying with the hemp), and hemp nylon (trying 3 ply for the first time).
On the knitting machine side of things, I started and destroyed 2 smaller pieces.
But then I settled into a great groove and created this easter coloured piece.
I can’t wait to wash and block out these pieces now. I’ve been finishing off 4 pieces so far.
Last night we had a fire. It makes the winter so nice and comfortable.
