It's getting cold outside

Funny enough - whilst the premise is to spin something out of your hand spun by the end of summer I would be getting a huge advantage of time on you all cause that would be next March 2008! So I'll take it that I should aim for the end of our winter.

I was recently gifted some Lisa Souza Roving and had a spin of it the other day - lovely lovely lovely stuff.

I use an Ashford Traditional and here's the results .I was really pleased with amount of yardage - 10gms = 60yds - for me that is great! And it knit up so nicely.

As to a pattern - I am not sure yet - only have 100gms of rovings so it won't be big - anyone got a suggestion?

I'm getting panic here. Where does it say we have to finish something at the end of summer? Oh my, I don't know if I can do that. I'll sure give it a try. Your yarn looks very nice and balanced.

Very pretty! I was just looking at a used Ashford traditional, do you like the way yours works?

Now I've gotta go off to look at some pretty Lisa Souza rovings. . .

Hattie - mine is a used Traditional and in many ways I think it's better than a newie - it's been road tested, and loved and I love it too.

Thanks! I was hoping to get the one I mentioned but she's asking a good bit and I might just have to wait and settle for a real spindle lol. She says she doesn't know how long she's had it and is asking 275. I found it new for 360 and free shipping...
