Finally! A Project to Work On!

When I joined this group, I went thru my stash to see what I already had spun up. I came up with one skein, single ply between a lace and fingering weight. It was from BFL that I dyed and out of 4 oz, there are approx. 706 yards. I have been looking at this skein and also looking at patterns to see what I wanted to do with it. Then I read Stephanie's post mentioning the MysticWatersKAL and it was an "AHA" moment. I just loved the name of the shawl and the color of the skein seemed to fit. However, I need around 1200 meters. So...once again I dug in my boxes...( you have to realize, I made a recent move to a new state so a lot of my stash is still buried in boxes). I not only found beads which will match but another ball of roving that I dyed at the same time. Serendipity!!
This is my skein already wound and the roving I have yet to spin. If I spin to the same thickness as before, I should have a wee bit more than needed. Keep your fingers crossed! I am really looking forward to knitting this shawl! I'll keep updates here and on my blog. I am fortunate to have found this group. You all provide great inspiration! Thanks!

Happy spinning and knitting,

Lee aka BAAbins
