I can't believe it myself, but aside from last Friday, which was the monthly spinning meet up at a LYS, I have scarcely touched my spinning wheel for more than a month. It sits there, patiently waiting, while I knit away on little sweaters and deal with family life. I walk by and notice that the pale maple treadles now bear marks that resemble my feet, and can't decide if I'd rather be spinning, or cleaning the treadles and adding more finish. Then I go back to what needs doing.
The little sweaters are coming along. I decided to try a new technique, and use steeks to create the arm holes for the Garter Stitch Baby Kimono. I hand sewed the steeks and the first sleeve is started and so far so good. The Daisy Cardigan is knit top down and has raglan sleeves, and those are finished and now its just stockinette until the proper length, and then the picot bind off.
