Yarn Along

I love Wednesdays.  It's the middle of the work week, it is usually spinning night for me, and I get to check out what others are knitting and reading in Yarn Along.

I am up to knitting the lace border on my Pipers Journey.  We are having another day of rain here which makes for some sad picture taking.  I can't get the colors to look right and the yarn is too dark to really see the pattern.  I am hoping to get some good pictures of this this weekend (maybe some finished ones too if I persist).  I have been spinning my Loop batt and it is finished.  Again, excuse poor photography.
I spun it with the intention of using it as a single.  I wanted to keep the colors separate.  I think I was pretty consitent.
It's really hard to see the different color changes.  I can't wait to see what it looks like after it has soaked and set and wound into a ball.  I have been putting it off due to the very damp weather.  I am afraid it won't dry very well.  Unfortunately it looks like we are in for some humid weather for a stretch so I don't know how long it will sit here.
I still haven't read much.  I am hoping with the 3 day weekend coming up that I can sit on the deck and catch up on all my books!

Your spinning is beautiful. I've been reading, not knitting, which shows in my progress.

That Piper's Journey is a lovely pattern! I've added it to my (very long) Rav queue now!

Your spun yarn is gorgeous! Spinning is one of those things I want to learn, so I love seeing how other people do it.
