Two birds, one stone

This morning started off a little rough, while we knew it was coming it was still sad to hear of the passing of my husband’s Grandmother. She was a lovely woman and will be missed very much.

I figured with her passing that it might be easier on my husband if I took one of the kids with me today to my guild meeting. So I brought along my daughter.

She learned to make yarn cakes at today’s guild meeting, and while she was quiet for most of the time, she spent a good fifteen minutes telling her daddy all about it when we got home.

Meanwhile, I learned about carding boards

*sigh* one more thing to add to my wish list…not that I’m complaining or anything.
It was very interesting to watch.

This is the yarn cake my daughter made from the llama & Icelandic wool blend I spun up, I’m very happy with the outcome which is why I decided to rent the guild drum carder for another month, I have much more llama as you have all seen and I have many plans for it. The drum carder will be much faster then the hand carders.

Here is where I kill two birds with one stone. As I mentioned in my last entry, my husband decided that the llama wool blend would make excellent socks, as I am still working on my Jane Austen project, this is the perfect time to complete at least one clothing item this year.

So I’ve decided on the Tilney socks by Rachel Coopey from the fall issue of Jane Austen knits.

I think this is project number 9 that I’ve started this year.

Have a nice night folks!
