I have downloaded the pattern Jippii!!! It took some tinkering the printer but I now have the pattern on paper and have knitted til round 20! I chose the clear beads because of the swirly patterns and because of the white/black theme...
And now I just changed my mind and have knitted till row 25 with green beads...

Here's finally a picture of my MS3 swatch. The yarn is the Zephyr in the color sage and needles size 3,5 mm knitpics. I really love the way the swatch turned out and I've got compliments on how it looks and feels (as if that was my doing, just love the zephyr)

I have been shopping online at Etsy. I found this roving too beautifull to resist. It's Blue faced leicester from Lauriegator in the color Psycic yello. I'm looking for my cd spindles now, the bag has mysteriously dissappeared. But then with half a car worth of things waiting for our trip to Finland it's not strange that I have trouble finding things. And Still I hav a last exam on monday so maybe the roving has to wait till after that...

Heres my little girl. 4 years old. She is so happy with the sun hat I designed and knitted to her. It's Pink (that is enough really to make her happy) Not only is it pink it has ruffles too. It's knitted top down in a yarn called Tuva, 50% cotton 50% acrylic, it's really soft! The needles were circular 3 mm.

Heres finally a picture of my first ever ply. It's made of two uneven singles one blue one white. I learned that I should ply my singles more if I'm going to ply them. The singles broke off because of too little twist... Other than that the ply went well. I got the U as in balance, it was fun. Now I'm working on some singles that I put more twist to. I also got a bat of wool that's not washed so now I'm spinning in the grease :)

First. I've tried plying on a spindle. It's was an interesting learning experience. I found my singles to be underspun and breaking apart. But I managed to get the ply balanced and got the U in the ply. I don't have pictures of in yet it's still hanging out to dry.
Today we had a local market day. I put up a table and gott out my home made jewlery and knitting. Then I added a couple of cd spindle kits. I got a lot of attention on the fact that I stood there spinning. It was fun, several told me they had spinned before. No one bought the spindles thoug but I sold some necklases. forgot all about pictures (so no pictures today) and about sun screening so I got some red on my cheeks ;) It was the first day of summer temperatures today!
