Another beautiful Sunday afternoon! I worked a lot of tutoring hours this week, so it was great to kick back this weekend and relax a bit. I spent most of the weekend doing some sewing for me and going out for a coffee in the afternoon. For my usual Sunday jaunt, I wore my go-to grey skirt and a light pink sweater. The sweater was bought a couple years ago at an antique shop. I've seen an almost identical sweater pattern from the 1940s, but I think this sweater was handknit much later. The yarn seems to suggest maybe 80's/90s? Hard to say, but either way it was a steal for $6.
Speaking of yarn, guess what I've been doing lately? No, not knitting. I'm working on getting my poor wrists fixed, but knitting is still off-limits for a while. Instead I've been making yarn with the spinning wheel my dad made me for Christmas. I have it perfectly adjusted now and it works like a dream.
Isn't she pretty?
I have some merino/silk blend I'm spinning at the moment. It is the most beautiful mix of blues, purples, and silver. If you want to see the wheel in action, I took a few second video of me demonstrating it. The lighting and sound are a bit off in the video I'm afraid. It's really not that loud in person.
I do love my little spinning wheel. I can't wait to make something from my homespun yarn.
I hope everyone had a great weekend!
