So....still spinning that Alpaca (one day I swear I will have a picture of it). I go to a knitting group on Monday nights and last night I brought my spindle and some louet northern lights. I hate how slow the hand spindle is now that I have been spinning on a wheel for about 4 years; however I do miss the simplicity of it and the ease of taking it anywhere.
I am also working on a scarf for my mom. I think the yarn is Nashua?? I am bad about knowing yarns of this nature...it is a superwash wool, one of those I-cord yarns-kind of novelty but at least it's wool. It has the most gorgeous stripes! A hat out of this yarn would be so lovely.
