In Which the Pirate Splurges.
Friend Janis and I went to With Yarn In Front in Centreville yesterday to check out the yarn, fiber, and spinning wheels. I have really missed yarn shopping with her! We each got some sock yarn (I’ll have photos as soon as it’s sunny again) and tried spinning on a Schacht Ladybug and a Kromski Sonata. I’m sold on the Sonata, for sure! It spun very smoothly and was a good size. Now I just have to save up the money for it. I feel almost guilty for wanting to get something newer and slicker than the Traditional, which I haven’t even had for a year yet.
I’m doing my best to keep from casting on a simple toe-up sock with my new yarn. I’ve been knitting so much for other people lately, it would be nice to do something quick and easy for myself! But no, I have several projects with deadlines that really need to be worked on. Now.
