ply a little tenderness.

welcome back friends.
first and foremost, today is a sad day. charis, aka c-dawg-knit - by far the most active and dedicated member of this blog - has left the west coast to persue her dreams in the big apple. after a frenzied week of packing boxes upon boxes of shoes and yarn and handbags, charis has up and left us...though don't be afraid, dear readers - i am counting on her to continue to motivate me to knit, laugh and watch cheesey movies - even from the east coast.

charis, i and the rest of the west coast will miss you. lots.

in honor of charis persuing her dreams, i have learned how to ply yarn.
first i spun this:

some wonderful camel-colored corriedale from Weavers Oaks in Novato, CA.

and then i plied it:

and now i'm knitting it up into the blanket from this book

i hope this doesn't turn into wedding blanket part two...

MC Crochet,

I too am sad that C-Dawg is leaving the West Coast-but so happy that she will be joining us East Coasters. Love the yarn -nice plying. I am putting my felted handbags on hold for the weekend & picking up my socks for my trip out west-Avon Walk here I come!
