Never Too Old

My husband is one of the most supportive people I’ve ever had in my life. He bought me a brand new guitar so I could learn, because it has always been one of my dreams. He never questions when I want to pick up a new hobby, but always supports me and goes all in. I most certainly will dedicate my first country song to him, hehe.


So Much Animal Crossing…

I am not a fan of the Easter event, but that hasn’t stopped me from trying to collect absolutely everything I can. Unfortunately a lot of the events run during times of the day when I can’t play, but that’s alright. I’m still having loads of fun. My home has three rooms and this week I should be able to pay off the 3rd so I can afford a 4th. I’m not sure what I’m going to do with them all yet, but I do love my sewing / fiber room!


Growing

Dill, basil, and mint are up next in my aerogarden, along with two tomato plants and a lettuce. I’m hoping to get some potting soil so I can get the strawberries going and also transplant the mint and dill when it comes time. We’ll see how it goes. The tomato plants were supposed to be done but they just sprouted new fruit, so I’m letting them continue on.


Bracers? I have just a Few..

I crafted 1900 (or so) bracers so that I could flip them for a profit. I sell the greens to vendor, then I DE the blues and either craft enchants with them to sell, or sell the raw materials depending on which are going for more. So far it has worked out very well.


All done Up! Yarn Completed

It’s hard to tell all of the awesome colours I have here, but it’s all spun up, I’ve plied it into a 3ply and it’s pretty lovely. It will rest like this for a day and then I’ll give it a good bath and a thwack to even out the twist and set it.

I’m not sure what I’ll knit with it yet, but I’m sure it will come to me in time. For now it can just join the collection of pretty yarn I have.


It’s time to ply!

It’s just the beginning stages but so far this merino tencel is plying up just nicely. I know I don’t have enough on each bobbin to make it all 3ply, but a good chunk should be, then I’ll 2ply the rest. It’s not my most even spin due to circumstance (we moved and I took a month long break) but I’m still glad I finished spinning it.


Have you Seen my Lemur?

Anyone seen my lemur around here some place? It escaped from the zoo and is apparently now wandering through the crowds….


Not Quite TAAT Socks (4)

I’m only getting a bit of time each day but the progress is happening. I’m just past the mid way mark on both heels. Once they’re as long as they are wide they’ll be completed and I’ll be ready to knit back into the round again and continue on the foot!


Charcoal & Maple Spin – Completed

While I don’t have a whole lot of spare time, I am spending what I do have doing things I love most in order to maximize that free time. That means today I spent a portion setting up the start of my circular sock knitting machine (handle attached to the base, 72 needles inserted and individually tested) and then I spent the rest of it spinning up the last of my merino / tencel blend from Three Waters Farm.

Tomorrow I should be able to ply my three bobbins together and fingers crossed that I’ll end up with a really lovely yarn to knit into something exquisite. We’ll just have to see!

In the meantime I am also continuing on my socks, I’ve been a bit neglectful of them so I’m still working on the heel flap, but I’ll get there. I hope everyone is staying safe.


A Daily Mailbox?!

It has been quite some time since I posted a daily mailbox, but I’ve been diving into World of Warcraft again here and there, so, why not! The excess gold was sent from alts who were crafting bracers & pants with it, the rest is some simple transmog sales. Nothing too fancy.
