Spinning and Sewing and Yarn, Oh My!

Wednesday evening I went over to caflygrl's house to sew some PJ pants. We quickly ran out of thread so we went to the store to buy some more and picked up dinner on our way back.

The table is a pretty accurate summary of the night with food, sewing, and a laptop. She even got a pretty good action shot of me sewing!

And the finished pants came out pretty well! My first real sewing project without my mom.

The blue ones with stars are mine, bet you guessed. ;)

Tonight I reskeined some self-striping yarn that I dyed with Dani a few weeks ago. The color combo is my own invention, I like to call it BlueBlueBlue Stripe

After reskeining the yarn I went into my room to find my spinning oil and came back to find Pan had taken over my fibery area on the couch.

But I made him move and did some spinning like I had hoped to tonight. In fact I spun more on the Party Yarn from my fibery adventure a few weeks ago.

I'm planing to Navajo ply it and make something crazy.

That's one thing I can't do well at all -- sewing! I'd never be able to make anything like pajama pants! I can do basic "repairs" with my machine, that's about it! Love the Blue Blue Blue Stripe yarn!

So, in blog stalking you, I'm really getting the impression you like blue, socks and stars.

I njust LOVE the shoes....but then I have a "thing" about sneekers!

The PJ pants are cool....wish I could sew!

Your blueblueblue stripe yarn looks beautiful...what do you plan to knit with it?

Cute PJs. I need to get my sewing machine out (and third hand one) and work out how to use it.... hmm pj bottoms.... good use, maybe, for a sewing newbie?

By the way- your final package is on its way... with a few clues in it... unless you have already worked out who I am? I've only messed up once by leaving my identity obvious on one of your pal's blogs! Luckily she was not to agast at my foolishness.

That'll teach me to mess around online whilst drinking wine.

SO you know I'm a UKer.... it wouldn't help you to know that I've met a large number of the UKnittyer's in the last few years.... it might help to know that I am part of an online duet....

And here's a very old joke that is also a clue to my identity...

I've been single-stranded too long! Lonely ATGCATG would like to pair up with congenial TACGTAC.
