Here is the Corriedale Wizz from Angela (link in previous posts). This is the 1st skein, still slightly damp but plied. I got 52g from my first bobbin of singles. I know it's not the best picture but it is pissing down and overcast so it's the best I can do in the circumstances.
I'm quite pleased with this as my 2nd proper spinning effort. The yarn is soft and bouncy. The colour blend is not well represented in the pictures - but I can assure you it is lovely and held completely true through a wash - so expertly dyed - well you couldn't expect anything less :=)

I've already started my 2nd bobbin of singles and am not really even 1/2 through plait number one. It spins like a dream.

Knitting is occurring too - socks - what a surprise! 1/4 of Isabella's front and a front from a rib cardi about 6 rows from completion.


I've finally typed up the pattern - I am LUDDITE! I can't hyperlink etc but if anyone wants a copy email me - or if you're on the Knitty board - pm me (user name lainch) and I will email copies to anyone who wants it.

Please don't try and explain how I can link to it or post it in sidebar etc - although it is helpful (I do appreciate helpful gestures normally) every time I tinker in anyway with this blog - I f**k it up big time - I can't get my head around this, I'm too old to have learnt it at school and I'm a dumb ass with computers!

I'd be willing to try to arrange your sidebar for you, if you want. I teach web design. And, although I've never worked with blogger, I have an account that I could try stuff on before it goes on yours.. It's not an easy world, this webstuff. I'm sandykins on Knitty.
