WIP Wednesday, Booklove

ON THE NEEDLES

Los Manos Locos aka The Crazy Monkeys, with just a couple more pattern repeats before starting the cuff.  By the way, this is a free Ravelry pattern.  You can find it here.

BOOKLOVE

i have two books today, one in progress and one finished.  I finished a great one last weekend, The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh.  Good, good book, well worth a look.  In progress, almost finished, is Gifted Hands, an autobiography by Ben Carson, M.D., a pediatric neurosurgeon.  Another great book well worth reading.

OUT OF THE DYEPOT

Here is a look at the fiber I dyed Sunday-

Dyed with Jacquard Acid Dye, Sky Blue

I started spinning this today and so far, it’s spinning up easily and quickly.  I really love the intense blue.  I’m a little out of practice, but I’m shooting for sock yarn.   The spinning bug again took up residence in my head, I didn’t realiize just how much I missed spinning until today, when I started on this roving. I’m glad to be gettting back into it.

I’m linking today with Tami, Ginny and Frontier Dreams.
