(1:00)All Spun Up

On the wheel

Second bobbin of Wildcraft fibre club for March 2013 is finished and I have started the third.
100 grams of Superwash BFL in the colourway Cosmos
I’m spinning up as a true three ply for a fingering weight yarn.
It’s going to be the main colours in the Thinking of Waves shawl

Passing it on

I took by Macbeth Three Witches spindle to America and showed my sister how to spin.  It’s living with here for the time being.  Used the park’n’draft method.

See my project page on Ravelry:  knit with my handspun primroses yarn – 70% BFL 30% Silk Wildcraft fibre club for March 2012
All wrong, not great for my body type so it has been frogged and re-skeined.  Now to find a pattern that fits the yarn better.

On the Needles

A free sock pattern on Ravelry called Mouches by Susanne Reese  Knit for the Instagram KAL with Schoppel-Wolle Zauberball in the colourway country bumpkin. #moucheskal13
1st sock finished, second sock  Pattern fits a size 39 (european), I am a size 38 but I knit the pattern as is and it fits fine for me.
Using the shorter KnitPro Symfonie wood double pointed sock needles  They are 10 cm long and a size 2.5 mm. I bought mine from Meadow Yarn
Time to cast on! #moucheskal13

(39:28) Moment of Drama

My edited interpretation of the witches’ speeches in Macbeth

When shall we three meet again
In thunder, lightning, or in rain?

When the hurlyburly’s done,
When the battle’s lost and won.
That will be ere the set of sun.
Where the place?
Upon the heath.
There to meet with Macbeth.
I come, Graymalkin!
Paddock calls.

Fair is foul, and foul is fair:
Hover through the fog and filthy air.

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.

The weird sisters, hand in hand,
Posters of the sea and land,
Thus do go about, about:
Thrice to thine and thrice to mine
And thrice again, to make up nine.
Peace! the charm’s wound up.

By the pricking of my thumbs,
Something wicked this way comes.
Open, locks,
Whoever knocks!

A deed without a name
We’ll answer.

Come, sisters, cheer we up his sprites,
And show the best of our delights:
I’ll charm the air to give a sound,
While you perform your antic round:
That this great king may kindly say,
Our duties did his welcome pay.

Show his eyes, and grieve his heart;
Come like shadows, so depart!

(42:19) Shall we Shog?
