First Post!

Woo! So, my first post for my blog. What to say, what to say...

So, I actually made the blog like... two weeks ago, but I've mostly been busy studying - first for my comprehensive final (which I freaking aced!), and now for my PEBCs and OSCE (in pharmspeak it means my liscensing exams which leads to a big ol' EEEK!).

So, this stuyding thing... leaves me stressed. Which means that I need things to de-stress. Which means I've been at my spinning wheel a lot when I'm not studying. And by not studying it means I'm slacking from housework which I oh so despise.

Oh well. I'll soon be moving to a place with laminate flooring and *gasp* a DISHWASHER. Oh dishwasherygoodness... how I've missed thee in these long years past...

Anyhow. Enough of the boring prattle. What everyone likes is pictures. I know I like pictures. So here's some yarn porn of what I've spun.

This is some thick to thin sorta sock weight yarn.
Two ply: centre pull ball method
Atomic Melon roving from Spunky Eclectic
Type: Wool blend

This is a very fine sock weight or leaning more to a lace weight yarn.
Three ply: navajo plied so it should have some stripey action going on
Roving from: hoxierice as part of a Craftster hand dyed roving swap
Type: Superwash Merino. Soooo very soft and delightful to work with

This is a thickish to thinish sockish weight yarn.
Two ply: centre pull ball method
Roving from: The Wool Emporium; hand painted by me with Wilton food dyes
Type: Perendale. Kind of itchy and hard to draft.

Well, I think that's it for me tonite. Probably time to go and sleep.

Congratulations on acing the final! I hope the rest went well, too. Your yarns are gorgeous, and that green sounds like just the right weight for one of my circular shawls, if you like such things (not that I'm hinting or anything. Okay, um, I'll be quiet now. :)

Thanks! I'm actually waiting for my bookstore to get your book in for me ;) And I love lace knitting, and I love shawls :D
