A little action on my turkish spindle this week since I couldn’t get time to use my wheel.
I started spinning my first ever rolags in a colourway called Monet’s Lily Pond. So far I’m learning a lot, I need a lot of twist into the singles. I’m hoping to get a 3 ply striping yarn for socks with this, but we’ll see how it goes…
It’s drying now to set the twist, a skein of Bright Idea I, 100% corriedale (LOVE) it poofed up so much!
It was a fairly successful week of sales – even though I was worried because I spent over 100k on a mount. I ended up reselling it for a smaller profit than I had anticipated because I got cold feet and didn’t want to wait for it to sell (others were also selling) but a profit is still nice.
Sales have been a mixture of consumables, raw materials, and a handful of transmog items. I’ve tried to run a dungeon here and there to restock my supplies, but aside from that it has been mostly hands off. I’ve been spending my free time in classic working the auction house there, trying to reach 1,000 gold (a lofty goal) in 365. Since I’m only level 12, it’s slow going. When you’re level 60 you have greater means to pull in coin.
Have any hefty mailboxes this week? Find a new great sale item? Let me know in comments, I’m always eager to hear from fellow goblins.
I’ve been experimenting with different types of fiber preparation and yesterday these amazing rolags showed up in the mail. I’ve never spun from a rolag before, but I can’t wait to see how it turns out. I’m thinking self striping sock yarn, if I’m lucky enough.
I found that I have all sorts of World of Warcraft stuff I want to talk about and post about on Twitter – but – a lot of my friends that follow me there are not WoW gamers, and I didn’t want to spam them too much. I decided it would be best if I created a new twitter account for all my WoW-esc posts, and thus @GirlGoblin1 was born. If you’re looking for WoW interaction that will be the best place for me. I’m using tweetdeck so none of the accounts will be neglected (so long as they don’t have another outage at least) and I’m excited about putting all my WoW stuff in one location. I just happen to really like organization.
Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!
Not huge sales, but every little bit helps!
I’m slowly building up some stock on classic to sell. I keep 10 gold on my AH character and everything else I’ve been shifting off to a banker alt. I spend the 10g, replenish the supply (and keep 10g I’ve earned back, on me) and it seems to be working out quite well so far. I’m also still doing some snipes on the auction house and getting things for below vendor cost, so it fills in some gaps.
Now that I’ve finally finished knitting my sweater, it’s time to move on with some coffee socks. I am knitting these in a grey/pink combination and I can’t wait to see how they turn out! I haven’t done a lot of colour work in the past, so I hope I can do them justice.
