yesterday (the 28th) i measured my amaryllis and it was 10.5 ” from the top of the bulb to the tip. today – it’s 13″!
the snow is melting – though it’s supposed to snow on wednesday. 😦
it didn’t go super smoothly, but it wasn’t painful. i started plying on the larger ratio on my high speed whorl and it was too fast. so i switched over to the whorl that came with the wheel and found that slower was easier.
here is a picture of it, though it’s not wet finished so looks in disarray.
here is the orange/red yarn i have been working on – the merino cashmere from the previous post.
i love how it turned out. it’s very soft and not ‘frizzy’.
and here is buku’s picture of a yarn turd. he thought it was pretty funny.
