So I have actually had several people visit my blog! Today I had chores to run, I just hate to have to leave the house, but before I did, I threw some wool in the pot with some dye. I have been spinning some purple yarn for a shawl for another SIL. It is shades of purple, Merino, Angora, and Mohair. This SIL collect Dragons, so I found a pattern with a Dragon on the back!Here is the link where I found it http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=5264274. You can download it right away! I love patterns like that! I was surprised! I thought I had spun up enough, and when checking the pattern, of course I am short. So I gave it a go, I never duplicate very well, and I think it will match up quite nicely. I still have some of the pink Mohair and White Angora and if I run into a problem I will do the border out of a more solid color and the Dragon in the brighter mixture. So now I have the fleece in the dryer on my rack hoping to get it dry today so I can start blending and spinning.
I am still working on the SpringSurpriseShawl. I am about 1/2 done with clue 1, clue 3 just came out, but I think there are a few that are behind like me. It seems to be a bugger for loosing stitch counts. I am also using needles I don't like and my knit picks should be here the end of this week. I am hoping that helps.
