Harloted (verb)

To find your blog innundated by a vast army of knitters in response to a link from the Yarn Harlot. (Similar to getting Slashdotted but by much nicer people.) Effects include blog comments from total strangers and a feeling of bogglement that lasts at least 24 hours after the initial Harlot posting.

Finished Hubby’s sock yesterday and cast on for the second one. I’m a little sock-happy, need to start that lace scarf, or strip four of the leftovers blanket, especially now I have more leftover sock yarn. I have another pair of socks planned, then I’ll do a pair for myself, either the Kool-Aid socks or Opal Owl.

Thank you for all the suggestions about roving! Wheel-spun the last of my dark Coopworth last night ready for plying on Saturday. All I have at home to spin now is a chunk of the sheep-of-unknown-heritage from class. Ordered some more roving from Copper Moose, Colonial Wool in Sugar Maple, which is a Corriedale and looks edible. Found some pink silk online that looked a lot like candyfloss but I’m not going there. I’ve heard it sticks to your teeth.

  1. Have you tried any Tencel or Tencel blends? There is a vendor on eBay that sells a sheep breed sampler of rovings to spin….. we are such good enablers, arent’ we? LOl

  2. I know it may not be EXACTLY the same, but I had the same thing happen after Wendy of WendyKnits linked to me. Holy Moley!
