Still counting jars

I still have a box of jars to wash, yuck. Then the lids, ah the lids, how I hate to wash thee. So instead I spun a little, you know mixing things up from the knitting groove:

Is that not fantastically yummy? I’m spinning it pretty thin so I can ply it together and still use it for baby things. This is from some awesome fiber I got earlier this year from the Hello Yarn Club:

That poof in front is pre-drafted into the softest bit of fluff. I will have plenty to choose from in terms of what to knit this stuff into. I got a few new books: Knitting Workshop, Boho Baby Knits, and Baby Knits. I also finally got The Vogue Knitting Book for seaming and stuff, no patterns, but lots of good info. Hmm what to start next?

P.S. Found my first stretch marks today… on my boobs! Ah well, I knew it was coming. And yes I have been using oil!

  1. Don’t beat yourself up about those marks….I tried everything – and I mean EVERYTHING to prevent them…no dice. Dr. said it is all about skin elasticity – you either have it or you don’t…I didn’t. Dr. Laura (eye roll) calls them badges of courage….that’s the only time I’ve liked that woman.

  2. The knitting is awesome! I was wondering if spinning your own yarn is hard or is easy to pick up? I have really gotten into knitting this summer and that is something I am thinking of trying.

  3. Oh the joys of being a woman! And just prepare yourself, you may get more! I’m crossing my fingers that you don’t, though! 🙂

  4. Vitamin E Gel is awesome too! My dad made me put it on every day when I was going through growth spurts – I have no stretch marks – even after growing six inches over one Summer 🙂

  5. I just “found” you via Ravelry – your blog is charming! I just got a Lendrum and am in awe of your spinning – gorgeous! And you have great taste in fiber (and ribbons, of course:)!
