A stole in the works

Filed under: chezPlum Patterns,Crochet,Freebie — April 6, 2008 @ 8:50 pm

I know I said I’d be knitting again, but you guessed it, I’m still crocheting.. ;-P
Yesterday I skeined this huuuuuuuge hank of Fleece Artist Merino (there’s 800 m in there!) given by the generous Stephanie when I wrote the “knitting from the french” article. And started a Dancing Poppies Stole. I really need a stole to keep my neck and shoulders warm when I work on the comp and this is going to work perfectly. The yarn is so nice, I’m totally smitten with it so far and can’t wait to see more of my stole now that I’ve sorted the design.

Also, I’m about to succumb and order a spindle kit. Yes, I want to make my own yarn like everybody else !! :-P
Of course I don’t know a thing about it yet, so I’d really appreciate any advice from you experienced spinners:
What is the thing between a top/bottom whorl ? I’m probably not going to focus on thin yarns anyway, so should I rather get a bottom whorl spindle ?
So far I’m hesitating between this one, this one or this one .. Any thoughts ?
I’m also discovering a whole new world with beautiful rovings.. Oh my, Oh my, I’m drooling… :-P
Oh and finally, along with the latest issue of Marie Claire IdāŠes there was this minuscule (10cm /4 ” square) “Mon bāŠbāŠ” Cross stitch kit. I really don’t see myself using it, so leave me a comment if you want it ! ETA: Gone to a new home !

    Yes please! Me me me!

    I’ve a friend here in Ireland (who just happens to be French) who is about to travel next month to adopt a long-awaited baby girl. I would LOVE to have something appropriate to give her for the journey and this is in French too – even better.


  2. Emily:

    Very pretty!

  3. Real ephedrine.:

    Vaspro ephedrine….

    Ephedrine. Ephedrine products. Ephedrine reward. Oxidizing ephedrine makes meth. Who sells ephedrine diet pills. Reducing ephedrine into meth. Vaspro ephedrine….
