Knit Flix

Thursday, February 19, 2009


It's been fast and furious spinning since Valentine's Day when Spinnity hosted the February spin-in.

Finishing the Tactile Fiber Arts Merino Tencel from Stitches West 2008 was on my list of things to do and here it is, 4 ounces of 2 ply laceweight. How many yards? Lots.

But it didn't stop there. As soon as the laceweight was off the Lendrum, another bump of fiber came out of the stash. This time it was Merino Silk from RedFish Dyeworks, also purchased at Stitches West last year. It's my first 3 ply. I need more practice.

The leftover singles ended up as a 2 ply laceweight mini-hank--a Hankette if you will. Sam laid claim to Hankette and now he has a stash, and he's not sharing.

Thank goodness I didn't give him thumbs.

  • Awww, Hank has a stash! What a sweet idea! Make sure you tag those skeins, so you remember what they were & how much you have, Hank!
