Crotch Curlers Revisited

If you were lucky (or unlucky) enough to have read the post dealing with what looked like curlers in the crotch of doll pants before Blogger wigged out and destroyed such literary genius work, you will remember the baby sweater.  It is now done, just needs a little blocking and a little baby...I can help with the first but not with the second and my sons had darn well better not help anytime soon either!

The last time you may have seen it, albeit for such a short time, it looked like this:

Weird pants and curlers no more:

Moss Stitch:

In other fiber frolics, have now had two spinning lessons.  Each week we have been sent home with a huge hunk of fiber to spin with the drop spindle before the next class.  At the last class, we spent a little over an hour on a wheel.  I am officially in love.  Being the overacheiving dedicated student that I am, both my blobs of fiber have been transformed into two good sized cakes of single ply.  Umm, Dear Santa, all I want for Christmas is a wheel...purty please?

I am spinning no tales here, when I suggest you pop over to Tami's to see some great FO's.


  1. Hahaha! Those really did look like crotch curlers! XD

    Looks like that yarn is picking up a lot of flash from the camera. It's super shiny.

  2. Hee-hee, glad I got to see the before and after pics. The baby sweater is really cute. P.S. Is it okay if I am jealous of your spinning?

  3. It is super shiny (Cascade Ultra Pima Cotton), combined with my lazy photographic skills late at night when I am more interested in just going to bed...

  4. Loving the sweater and the spinning progress!!!!

    I'm not going to even ask for permission to be jealous of your spinning skills ... I'm just going to say that I am. LOL!!!!!

  5. How sweet is that? Love the color! I will miss those crotch curlers though.

  6. The sweater is adorable but totally focusing on the yarn...maybe because I am more of a spinner than a knitter. Keep your eye open on the Ravelry Classifieds. I found two of my wheels for a great price that way...and local.

    Happy Fiber Arts Friday!

  7. The sweater turned out amazing! Wow, your yarn and spinning skills are totally awesome! I can't believe you just recently learned. It's beautiful and you should be totally proud.

  8. I'm hoping to learn to spin soon, and your yarncakes look fabulous to me! Same goes for the sweater, I love the look of that moss stitch.

  9. Your singles are awe-inspiring! You are a spinning prodigy for sure. (Mine were not nearly that uniform for months and months...)
