I have stalled out a little on my spinning.
Two Ewes Fiber Adventures Podcast were holding a Summer Spin-Off, and so I was motivated to get through some of my projects for Shave 'Em to Save 'Em. I have chronicled most of those projects here on the blog. However, Summer is over, up here in Minnesota, and so also is the Spin-Off.
I have a little finished of some very soft, though not particularly organized, CVM which was naturally dyed a soft sage green and also an undyed bit of lovliness.
The knitting has continued unabated.
The Yarniacs Podcast had a KAL for the Colors of Fall as designated by Pantone.
For the #YarniacsCOF2020 you had to choose pieces that fit in the color palates of London or New York for 2020/2021.
I made a bunch of stuff, which you can find on my ravelry page, but the last one was a sweater for The Eldest, and he looks so good in it, I just have to post one photo.
Now, I do not knit socks.
I have always been more of a sweater knitter than anything else. I also end up knitting a number of Christmas stockings every year, depending upon customer requests.
However, I think I finally see the benefit of a small, portable project that I can work on without paying any attention to it. I have found that it's the perfect knitting to do while I listen to my piano students playing their pieces.
Anyway, I knit two pairs of socks since September 15, and I may knit one or two more pairs before the #fallingleaveskal2020 is over and done with.
I tried some eco-printing this weekend, and I think I'll make a few changes for the next time. I didn't boil it for very long, and I could have let it steep for longer as well.
I hope you're well, all you makers out there.

See you around.
