Yeah, yeah. I'm behind. Whatev...
I made the Zen and the Art of Stash Diving scarf from Robyn Chachula in Berroco Vintage. This was the first time I crocheted with a DK weight yarn. It was light and fluffy the whole way through. I just did the row repeats until I could wear it the way I like to wear scarves.
Oh and I'm still spinning up some fiber from Spinner's Hill Top:
I still have a bunch of fiber left to spin. Now I can see how much yardage some people can get out of 4 ounces. Wow! I'm prolly going to two-ply this to have as much yardage as possible. I'm not yet confident in my singles to leave them alone. Again, this is a wool-merino blend. I find that as I'm spinning, I've been dropping the spindle more than I have in the beginning. I'm not sure if my spindle is getting too heavy because I'm getting good and don't need such a heavy spindle (it's the Ashford students spindle) or if it's because wool and merino tend to break more? I dunno but either way I'm in a groove now and there's less dropping going on.
