Spinning and knitting, oh my!

So I’m glad to say that at least my money wasn’t wasted, as a through search has not yielded my camera cable. However I’m secretly pissed off too because I have a lot of photos I want to put on my computer.

That being said, I’ve decided that I really freaking want a spinning wheel. Really badly. There’s a generalized antique/junk store by my house and they have three for sale. Of course they’re technically “antique” making them far more expensive than they should be, but that’s not the point (and I doubt they’re even that antique!). The point is, I want a spinning wheel.

I’ve made three skeins of yarn, 2-ply which I will have photos of shortly within the past week. Two of these were partially made up of wool already spun, but another was done completely within a few days time. I’ve been a spinning fiend, partially in thanks to my wonderful SP who sent me the gorgeous fleece and the wonderful brand new drop spindle which makes spinning just so much easier.

I also splurged yesterday because I got a new job. A job that pays more than my old one, and is arguably much better than my old one as my main job title won’t be “cashier”. Head cashier or not, it’s a shitty job!

But back to what I splurged on. I bought some beautiful teal merino roving and some wild silk (meaning the silk worms were actually wild) dyed in greens and reds and oranges. Pictures, I swear, will follow.

I was going to write more, but the thunder and lightening is telling me that I should turn off my computer for now.

Stay tuned for photos!
