I’m putting off two things today. Voting and staining a bunch of boards for a pergola. Don’t worry! I’ll do both. But first I’ll avoid my civic duty for a little longer and tell you about the crafty things going on around here.
We had another retreat on Friday and Saturday at My Hero’s office. His office is everyone’s new favorite hangout! I made this.
It’s supposed to be for Dreamboy’s room, but he says it’s too girly. My plan was to add some brown corduroy pillows. Now the plan is up in the air. We’ll see how it all plays out. I haven’t even measured the bed to see if it needs borders.
I’ve done a bunch of spinning. This is one of the Wilton dyeing projects that Frankie and I did.
I spun this:
I also spun both of these. I did part of it big and chunky, and the second one thin and relatively even. I have one more bobbin to spin and then I’ll ply the finer ones.
I’m not loving the color. The gold and burgundy remind me of Minnesota Gophers colors and I’ve always hated their colors. I have no idea what I’m going to do with this stuff. The chunky yarn would make a cool hat, I guess.
Yes, I’ve been knitting too. Hypernova is coming along really well.
I’m over 350 stitches per row, so it’s slowing down! I also found out that if you make a mistake in the double yarnover section, it’s a bugger to fix!!! I’m paying attention now!!!
Ok, I’m going to go buy some stain and I’m going to vote. You can’t complain if you don’t vote!!! And you can’t stain boards if you don’t buy the stain.
