SPIN : On (and Off) the Wheel Lately

Hey, fellow spinners!

What has been on and off your wheel lately?

 (I’ve finished up some hand dyed merino from Pigeo Roof Studios and Sew Perfect Purls as well as some Gotland. Up next is bare merino and some light gray Shetland—both of which I’m hoping to dip in a natural dye bath in the next month!)

KNIT : Wool and the Gang Throw

Back in summer of 2017, I got my hands on a 50% off coupon for Wool and the Gang's website so I decided to try out their Crazy Sexy Wool. I bought a Koselig blanket kit but the herringbone stitch was frustrating so I opted for a simple garter stitch blanket instead. I chat more about the throw in the video below.
