More Totoro adventures with Handspinning
Now that Socktober is over, sigh, I am in project limbo. I started the Blue Sky bear, but the yarn from my stash in very uninspiring and I can't seem to pick it up even though it has only one leg to go.
I washed and dried my first spindle full of yarn spun from the blue roving on my Ashford drop spindle from the Wisconsin Sheep and Wool Festival. I experimented with some shaping and knit on ears, but I think other ears have been better. The large one really has more cat-like ears. At least Totoros do not make fun of other Totoros, they are just not like that. I toyed with the idea of felting the Totoro...maybe another time.
I received a really nice gift from the world's best hair stylistMisa, at Paul Brown Honolulu. She returned from her trip to Japan with a hand towel, paperclip jar and bag charm. They are just too cute.
Hmmm, what can I make for Norovember with two balls of Silk Garden?
