Lady Eleanor Yarn

May 8, 2007

I finally got an essential tool for spinning today. Since I am cheap and didn’t want to buy one, I used to wrap the new yarn around my arm and a dowel that I would hold.  My skeins would turn out a little wonky, but still usable.  However, I broke down eventually and I am now a proud owner of a Niddy Noddy.

Remember this? This is 100% merino that I hand dyed for a Lady Eleanor. I now have approximately 380 yards of this wonderfully colorful yarn. I have been spinning it in singles (to copy Noro Silk Garden) with long stretches of each color. I have 6 colors total; 2 purples, 2 browns, and 2 greens.

I was waiting for my Niddy Noddy to take the first skein off the bobbin. I’m really happy with how it turned out. So happy that it inspired me to get online and blog about it right away. I’ve definitely been in a bit of a blogging slump lately. I’ve actually not been knitting as much eithher, but have been enjoying gardening, finishing the bedroom (the neverending project) and finishing up a quilt that I pieced together when I was 13.

I’m hoping that I’ll find some new inspiration for blogging, sharing and being part of a knitting community, as I push through this writing slump.  Thanks for hanging in there and continuing to read along.

    Thanks AmpuT. It seems to be coming in waves lately. Lots of stuff building up over two weeks of non-blog activity then a week of more consistant posts.
