Ready to Ply

I finished my singles and am ready to ply the merino/angora/silk. This will be my first plying attempt on the new wheel. I've never used a tensioned lazy kate before either, so this should be fun.


I also managed to put buttons on the sweater I knit for P-Girl the week before she was born. And in good time too, because it is a good fit now, which means she'll have outgrown it in another two weeks time most likely.

She's smiling because she's wearing a sweater her momma made for her.

Oh, holy cow, she is SO CUTE--and it's not just of the fab sweater! She's just the definition of "baby". :)

Beautiful singles AND beautiful baby . . . doesn't get better than that!!

And, the tensioned lazy kate? One thing I've noticed is that, as the bobbins start to empty out, they unreel more easily, and I usually need to "up" the tension a bit as I close in on the end . . . just in case that helps! (As if you couldn't figure it out on your own!)

Aww, what a cutie! She's growing so fast, isn't she? I'm always amazed at how quickly time flies when they're this age.

She's getting big fast! Just in the nick of time for the buttons.

That is one cute baby. I'll have to go back later and look at the sweater, because I'm too dazzled by the baby to look at anything but her sweet face.
