But it’s kind of necessary. I wanted to finish the baby blanket since it’s for a December contest. I did! Yay me…
It’s in the wash now. About to start the test knit for the February Six Sox. This is all you get.
I did spin up a braid of Merino from Unwind that’s been in my stash for quite a while. It’s for the second SSK KAL. The KAL has already started, but runs through February something. Since I’m just planning to do some mittens I’ve got plenty of time. I got exactly what I wanted – a worsted weight yarn. 210 yards.
The color is called Abalone and it’s a good name for it.
I did get some fiber from Miss Babs this week. I really didn’t need any, but was poking around her site and couldn’t resist the blend since I’ve never spun it before. It’s 70% super wash Merino and 30% Seacell, which is a fiber made from seaweed. And then there’s the color, which pretty much says it all.
Off work until Wednesday morning, yippee! I love my job, but I like these mini staycations too. They’re forecasting ugly weather for Tuesday, so we’ll see if work happens Wednesday. I wouldn’t mind staying in when the low is supposed to be 14 and the high 27.
Merry Christmas, Happy Yule, or whatever it is you celebrate.
