Roving P*rn Ahead!



I could marry this roving.



And here are the singles so far. It's blending a lot (I'm spinning from the fold, which is my usual thing for superwash). I am going to lurve this yarn!!




And here is Rogue at what is called Row 57 of the chart, but since some of the rows were repeated it's actually Row 75 of the knitting. Terrible picture. I think I'll like the sweater, though.





I have completely forgotten about my Cul De Sac vest which I was so excited about last spring. Maybe I'll work on it after Rogue is done. I don't know. I've got so much going on in my head about these Noro-esque yarns I want to spin and knit into a cardigan, I probably will do that as soon as I have a minute free.

Kids in school.

Demand a paper ballot!!

And have a nice day!

That roving is HOT! It goes on and on! And your spinning is so even and perfect. Lovely.

I near fainted when I Tivo'd the PR rerun. Thought I missed it!

I sat down to watch TV literally for the only time other than Studio 60 for ten days and it was a rerun, unbelievable.

Did you watch Studio 60? What did you think?

First of all, I have been lucky enough to touch that delicious juicy orange roving and my mouth is still watering! It is as soft as a baby's left butt cheeck! The yarn is just joyful! I am envious of Wendylicious' ability to spin perfect even strings! (I spin lumps... I haven't the patience, I think).

I watched Studio 60. I liked it. It seemed like we got ever so little of it, since it took nearly 2/3 of it to set up the premise. I love Matthew Perry as a dramatic actor (ie not sitcom), Bradley Whitford can do no wrong (since a. he was on my second all-time favorite show, West Wing, and 2. because I see him all the time at the ballet school since his daughter goes there), Timothy Busfield is in my actor hall of fame due to the fact that he starred in my all-time number one show Thirtysomething. (I even watched that vet-on-obscure-island thing he did... although it wasn't easy.) Then, add in Tommy Shlommy, and his magnificent dialog... well, I have high hopes. It's going to take a week or three to really get a feel for it.

Gray's Anatomy and ER were new... I know er is passe, but I am like in a rut where it is concerned. GA was ok. It's tasty drivel.

I may come over to run my hands thru that orangey goodness again...mmmmmm...

xo,
Joy

The roving reminds me of a Creamsicle.

Rogue is turning out to be fun. But very soon I must turn to the FIL sweater, so I have about a week (or until I get paid, oh, jabrous day!) to work on this. Better stop blog surfing!

I'm surprised many people are knitting this now. Maybe because the weather is cooling down, but the craze for Rogue was a while ago. I'm behind the times!
