Lest ye think that I haven’t been knitting…

Here’s where the Peep’s sweater stood before the sicknesses invaded last Tuesday:

And here’s where it stood as of Sunday afternoon:

He’s thrilled, I’m thrilled, everybody’s thrilled thrilled thrilled.

So there I was on Sunday, one project done, and no great urges to begin (or continue) another, I turned to something completely different:

Yep, my long-neglected spindle.  The one I got for Christmas last year, and haven’t touched.  So I spent a happy hour or so reading the manual, trying to figure things out, etc.  And at the end, I had something to show for it:

Although not much.  It’s about 5 yards worth of over-twisted single ply.  It resembles nothing so much as a senior citizen’s dreadlock.

But it’s mine, all mine.

And while I’m by no means a spinner, or even a novice – I’m still in the early stages of “beginning” – I know just about enough to be dangerous – which is to say, I may have to buy some roving at Rhinebeck…
