Stats for the two of them:
183g. 512m of 3 ply. (1536m of singles.)
Length per 100g: 839m
Plan to knit: Cinch
And then I started on the ValJean
It's going to be stripey, because I divided up the batts like this first:
for each skein/sock.
Just before plying. I'm too lazy to change the bobbin :) so I wind off the single with my ball winder, making a "cake" like this, and then put it into a bowl on the floor. I've found that if I sit so the single runs over my jeans leg a bit, the slight tension will pull out the annoying little backtwist worms.
Stats on the ValJean skeins:
168g. 519m of 3 ply. (1559m of singles)
Length per 100g: 928m = Best yet. (in fact, the second skein was 995m/100g)
Plan: Hermione's Everyday socks
Well over 3km in 18 days.
I've nearly finished a scarf for Jasmine, trying out brioche stitch for the first time.
and I tried my hand at art yarn, making a batt out of many different things: hemp, flax, banana, tencel, mohair, angelina, merino, romney, cotton thread and bits of material. It was fun, but I can't think of anything to do with it other than laugh and throw it in the bin :)
Not much else going on here. Might finish some socks tomorrow; we'll see.
