These are the stitchmarkers I made for DragonsMuse. She wanted a semi-gothy purple colour theme, so these are a lovely purple and silver and she will be able to use them for knitting and crochet.
I posted them today along with the Halloween Jack beanie. Hopefully Royal Mail not withstanding, she will get them soon. I also posted Karan's Cheer up goodie box. It had to go second class in the end, but I really hope she likes it all!
I haven't mentioned the spinning for a while. I finished the mystery fleece the other day - well, I still have loads of the fleece left, but I had spun all I could on my Celtic spindle, which I'm thinking of calling Tailtiu after the Celtic goddess of nature btw. So I wound it onto my niddy noddy (made from an old broom handle *lol*) and set the twist. Then I hung it on the washing line to dry, weighted by hanging the niddy noddy from the other end. I haven't decided if I want to dye it yet. I probably will because then I'll be more likely to wear whatever it is I make from it. And I want to have a go at this Kool-Aid lark!
I'm already spinning the next skein on my cd spindle. I have this urge to call this spindle Kylie (I'm spinning around...) but I may settle for Enya *lol* I haven't decided yet.
I have a really easy sock pattern in a knitting magazine so if this skein comes out okay, I may give it a go *gulp* The pattern I'm looking at has no heel so it should be an easy one to start off on. I love the colours in this skein!
