Spinning Friday

The flu has been officially kicked out of our house, thank goodness. The Skeptic got a little sick and the boys were amazingly flu-free. So I can actually bring you a real post today!

I present to you my Loop batt, all spun up and ready to go. Earth Goddess is the colorway.

Loop and the boys


I really struggle with getting a good picture taken while the boys are around. Knittybaby dumped a bag of chips all over the carpet while this second one was being taken. Not helpful when you’re trying to take an in-focus picture without the flash.

I’m pretty happy with how this yarn turned out. It’s about a heavy worsted for the most part, with the occasional thick spot. But better consistency than I’ve had before and the batt was fun to spin.

Tomorrow is March first, which starts a fun but busy two months for us. All  four of us will have our birthdays to celebrate, which means it will be contest time soon, so keep your eyes open!

Enjoy a wonderful weekend everyone. I’m getting in the mood for spring, so I’m looking forward to some warms temps here in Minnesota. Martha’s gardening issue has me inspired….

  1. That yarn is really beautiful 🙂

  2. Lovely colors! And cute feet. (I often end up with toddler body parts–usually hands–in my knitting photos, too!)

    Adorable feet – but my first thought was: “When did Knittybaby get big enough to have chips!” How old now?

  4. Sorry, the cute toes distracted me from the yarn…

  5. is that what you were spinning when I saw you last month? lovely!

  6. Lovely yarn. I can just envision trying to get a decent picture with bribing them by standing on the table!

    pretty yarn. Can’t wait to see what you make with it too!

  8. Wow, four birthdays in March? Us, too! (Hubby, daughter, grandpa, and a best girlfriend.) And that’s some beautiful yarn you got there – feeling covetous over here!

    What did you think of the Loop batt? They look really wild and crazy. I’ve been thinking about giving one a try!

    Your yarn looks great! At first glance, it reminded me of Noro Iro. I’ve given up hope for warm and just accepted that Alaska has better weather than we do right now. And I must admit I get kind of happy when I hear other of other people’s kids misbehaving! When do you spin? Do they actually let you?

  11. Hope your all feeling better. Love the yarn

  12. Love the yarn, but the toes make the picture!
