Progress is being made on my Imogen sweater. Since it is hand-painted yarn, I’ve been alternating rows between the three pull balls of yarn. It makes the color more evenly dispersed, but it’s a pain to untangle the yarn after knitting a few rows.
I had hoped to have it finished by now, but my spinning wheel has been calling my name. I’ve started spinning some of the fiber that I dyed and carded at Yarn School. I had never used a drum carder before Yarn School and got totally hooked on them. Some of the fiber I had dyed in the lab, ended up felting in the washing process and I thought it was ruined. Someone suggested that I card it, and low and behold, out came this beautiful, fluffy fiber!! After that, I started carding several of my other rovings — ones that I had been more experimental with the color on — and ended up saving several of them. Yes, a drum carder is now on my “must have” list.
