Around the whorl
The Yahoo Spindler's group had a spindle swap and this is the one I made. Its done out of polymer clay and it was actually kind of an accident. I had made several whorls with some Skinner blends (color blends that go from one color to another - they're gorgeous) and had some leftovers, so I thought I'd find out what happened if I mixed them together and look what I got! It really looks like the sunset or something. I hope the person I'm sending it to likes it. Its going to Australia. I'll be getting another spindle that someone else made just for me. I'll be sure to share when I get it.
In knitting news, I finished the back of Oasis last night and did a three needle bind off on the shoulders so today I'll sew the side seams and do neck and armhole bands. She should be ready for a photo op tomorrow. I got some spinning done on the cashmere (almost done) and a little bit on the merino/tencel but I haven't really sat down at the wheel for very long. When I have had time the phone starts ringing and Caleb needs me so not much is getting done. I hope to get a little bit done today while he's at school though!
Also, my mom is looking for a simple, loosely fitted t-shirt type of sweater knit at around worsted weight. I suggested the Shapely Tank with the optional sleeve (you're shocked aren't you, you had no idea I'd suggest the Shapely Tank, its not like its my favorite tank pattern of all time or anything) but I thought I'd bounce the question around out here in blog land and see what you could come up with. Leave a comment and let me know what your favorite summer top is.
