I made yarn!

Because I SO need a new hobby right now, with the wedding going on and the dissertation and all.


I took a class through the local Parks board, which was run at the LYS. There was only one other student in the class, and we had a pretty good time. I'm still getting the hang of things, but my yarn so far does not look too hideous. I think I've settled at a mostly-consistent heavy worsted weight, but that's just me eyeballing it.


(Isn't my spindle pretty?)

Dave's afghan is moving shockingly fast. I cast on for the fourth block today. Here's Section C, a neat scale-like motif.


And to continue the "things Liz has made out of natural-colored wool" motif, this week I finally attached my veil to the comb. I had my hair trial yesterday (where we tested out my desired hairdo) and here's how the two look together:




24 days till I get to wear all that stuff again!

I love the way you attached the veil and your hair style with it! It's a very old fashioned look, but simple and classic, rather than stuffy and frilly.

What a beautiful bride you will make! The lace is absolutely gorgeous, and I love your hairstyle!

Your yarn looks better than mine, which is beginning to resemble old-fashioned telephone cable! ;-D
