So does anyone know anything about these electric spinners? If so, please leave a comment.
Last night I went to the spinning group and we were sharing our space with a book club meeting. They were having a very interesting discussion regarding the History of Westford, and it was being led by the author and very lovely woman, named June. She used to be a spinner and knew we would be there as well.
So she brought some fiber and the Kissel Electric Spinner (complete). I bought it and a 6 oz. bag of cream colored cashmere – all for $70! I figured the cashmere alone was worth that!
I’m not sure if I will ever use the electric spinner, but it might be cool for plying. It came in the neat wooden box with three bobbins, and the instructions.
I did manage to get home in time to see Grey’s Anatomy, and although I knew the main character couldn’t die, I thought the story line was interesting.
I’m not sure how I feel about the upcoming spin off with McDreamy’s ex. I think spin offs just dilute the main show and you end up with two so-so shows instead of one really good one.
Ene’s Scarf/Shawl in the Spunky Electric Laceweight, although it’s not going to be on the needles for long. I cannot seem to get my stitch count correct and right now I’ve tinked almost back to the first chart. I cannot decide if I want to just add another stockinette row and ‘adjust’ the count accordingly. I did look for an addendum to the pattern but there doesn’t seem to be any. Or what will probably happen is I will rip the thing out and start again. I really really really hate tinking lace. But if I bite that bullet now I can be back on track for Sunday SnB at Borders.
I also have to pull together all my sock yarn. This may or may not be a good thing. A woman at work wants me to teach her how to knit socks and since she doesn’t know where to get sock yarn by Monday, I volunteered to find something in my stash for her. She already says she knows how to knit so I thought I would teach her the magic loop since I think that will be the easiest method, and since she doesn’t know how to knit on dpns (yet).
I was hoping my first installment for the Socks That Rock Club would be here in time but probably not, so I’ll just start the second sock for regia silk, the first is still on dnps, or maybe something from my stash will sing to me.
