I know I'm a bit of a posting demon this morning, but don't worry, it won't last! ;)
It just occurred to me that I haven't posted a single picture of my current ufo - the Hourglass Sweater - yet, so I hurried away to take a picture to correct the situation. Knitting is fast and I've done about 12", and the Lang Fantomas yarn I'm using is soft and, although it sometimes splits a little, quite pleasant to knit with. Well, anyway, here she is:
And also, I was spinning some more a few days ago - this time some wonderfully soft yarn we bought at the Elegant Ewe in Concord, while we were in NE. I have no idea what kind of fibre this is, because I didn't think to ask when I bought it (was just attracted to the lovely soft fibre), but while spinning it I was reminded of the texture of HipKnits Silk yarn, so this may well be silk. It was odd to spin - quite slippery, and with very long, very straight fibres, so it made me try a different (new to me) method of preparing the roving. I split it lengthways into thin slivers of fibre and spun it from those.
This is about 40g of lovely smooth and shiny yarn, spun as a single. There are a few places where it is a little over-twisted, but overall I'm pleased:
