I’ve been pampered this week, lucky me has been going to a sauna every day this week. for free! don’t be jealous though. this damn sauna is my apartment, the freaking a/c unit died right after my last post. you know, the one I proclaim how much I loooove the summer. it shouldn’t be humid and sticky INSIDE my aparment. luckily they gave us a window unit for our bedroom until they fix the main unit, I only have the pleasure of experiencing the mugginess once I’m anywhere but my room. there’s nothing like taking a shower and immediately being hot. my hair is HUGE. it must grow by the hour something fierce. sexy I know.
in the last couple of days all cooking has ceased and we’ve either been out or right next to the window unit. I’ve done a little bit of knitting, which I’ll show later, but I’ve mostly been spinning. people! why didn’t anyone warn me how addicting this is?!
I’m so proud of my first little hank! all 20 yards of it. so much so that I think I’ll just be carrying it in my purse from now on. I still have the other half of the batt to spin up this weekend, but I’m already dreaming about wheels and spinning up lace and sock yarn…..stephanie’s batts are so soft and airy. I had no idea that I had to work my way up to merino. I just kinda did my thing. I love the way the colors flow and change throughout the yarn, it gives it a plied look without me having to do anything. I like it when other factors make me look good. and the firestar makes the whole thing shine. I’m so happy I finally started spinning this batt up, this whole time I was worried about “ruining” the fiber or spinning some horribly overspun thing. thankfully it was smooth sailing, though I’ll admit there are some sections that are pretty thin in there that are strategically hidden in the pic. I don’t like to look bad and all.
