I’m off work. Until the 22nd. And I get to go on a trip. I’m giddy! I keep flitting from activity to activity because I want to do ALL THE THINGS.
I finished some spinning last weekend. It’s the SSK color of Falkland from FiberNymph. I didn’t go for thin, just for consistent and comfortable. I really like how it came out.
11-12 WPI, which is about a worsted. Got 260 yards from it. No idea what it will be, or what I’ll pair it with.
This is not an uncommon sight.
Little bugger scares the crap out of me sometimes when he rolls around up there. I’m always afraid he’s going to fall off. He’s a cat so theoretically he’d land on his feet, but I worry anyway.
A better shot of the finished Loop! batt.
I finally finished the TDS socks last night. Still only managed to come in the lowest scoring group, but at least I did them this time.
I did a little bit of stash enhancement thanks to one of the TDS cheerleaders. She knit one of the pair out of a color of Hazel Knits that made me drool. This will surprise nobody.
I got a sweater quantity of DK. I’ve got a couple of ideas, but really need to finish some stuff first. Right now for some reason I’m really fighting the urge to start another swirl. I don’t NEED to start another one, I need to finish the stuff I’m already working. We’ll see if good sense or petulant inner child wins.
Also finished this week is the Barhopping Cowl from Lost City Knits. I had enough yarn to make it even wider, but this was enough. Simple knit but enough going on to keep your attention for a while.
And finally, I keep forgetting to mention a lovely surprise that arrived a few days after the ugly weather. The Yarn Elf struck again with some gorgeous alpaca blend yarn.
Purple. Sweet! I’m not sure what it’s going to be yet, but whatever happens I’ll smile thinking about the fact that humans can be decent creatures after all every time I wear it.
Happy 4th to my US friends! I’m not sure what my posting will be like over the next couple of weeks as I’ll be on the road quite a bit. Haven’t decided if I’m taking the laptop or not yet. Since I’m driving I have the space, but I’m for sure taking the tablet and at some point technology overload sinks in.
