Though the Sisu retreat fast approaches and I need to have my Hemlock finished as a class sampler, I couldn’t resist some spinning this week. I filled my bobbins once more with Nora (the Targhee cross) and plied up another two skeins of 3-ply. I now have about 1,000 yards of something between a heavy fingering and sport weight. There are 8 more batts - somewhere between 600 and 800 yards - so I am hoping to squeak a sweater’s-worth out. If it comes up short I may have to start in on the black batts from Nora and do a two color pattern.
Having sufficient yardage for an entire gray sweater is an uncertainty right now. Having sufficient yardage to complete the Hemmie edging in green leaves is a certainty - as in I certainly do not have sufficient. That little clot of yarn in the upper right is all that remains. Oh, well, some purple leaves certainly aren’t going to disrupt a calm visual pattern.
I am 11/16ths of the way through the edge. Onward…
