Alarm signals coming in from my back. I'm putting a hold on weaving for a few days, and have picked up the knitting needles; this will be an opportunity to make a dent in the mountain of yarn that arose from World Series spinning.
I thought it would be fun to see some of the knitting up close in the scanner. The first one is suri alpaca I purchased in batt form. Turns out it had tons of second cuts and vegetable matter not evident on first inspection. It was terrible to spin—constant stops & starts to remove the offending bits—but I did get something knittable from it. Here's a scarf in progress at roughly 12x magnification (click to enlarge):
And here is a wool/silk blend plied with all wool. Click.
