Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

there has been some fibering going on.


A little heavy cotton vest, knitted up quickly and so easy to wear. Quite warm, too. I'm thinking I might make pockets of some sort, though I've used up all of the yarn, here.


And there has also been a bit of spinning going on. I'm not too happy with the roving, though. The color is peacockalicious, but the wool is rough and neppy. I'm going to give it a rinse with hair-conditioner when I've plied it. And then, maybe a cable sweater.
But right now, I am working on a hat to wear to the Harlot's reading on the 22nd. It will have sparkles, and perhaps even beads.

    You are so BAD! You posted about & took photos of your wheel with the fiber on PURPOSE just to tease me!!! ;~) It's soo not working . . . . much.

    Love the vest and I'm looking forward to the hat.

    Is the Harlot going to be at Powell's?

    I've just been catching up on your last few entries. You sure can make me smile with your apt descriptions. Aging Playboy bunnies. Love it!

    I put a bid on a wheel on ebay today and I am anxiously waiting to see if I 'win' ! Then, I, too, can sit and play with all the pretty roving. Although I have a feeling the learning curve is pretty steep.

    That is one pretty spinning wheel. I've been thinking about getting one, but the longer I put it off the better (at least for my drawing and painting time). I know once I have one, it will be another way to neglect those things :)
