A Bit of a Rip

 I struggled through more than half of this baby sweater
-learning how to knit a raglan from front to front.
I am ripping it back to the beginning and trying it again because now I think I can do it justice!
It is a good rip out;  I learned a lot and am looking to work through the second one much more easily!
 The spinning went very smoothly and I plied the two bobbins together today!
The interesting part-I ended up with almost exactly the same yardage as the first skein I spun.
The first skein has 330  yards and the second 331 yards!
I will wash it and hang it out to dry today so I can start knitting with it!
(And yes, I am still enjoying a bit of coloring each day;  
it is very relaxing and there has been a need for that!)

  1. Beautiful skein!!!
    I agree, coloring is so relaxing. I am really enjoying coloring all those little bunnies. It's brain candy compared to our other crafty projects.

  2. I don't think I'd be good at the knitting machine. It seems to involve math and engineering! I'm more of liberal arts girl. But I'm amazed at what you can figure out.
