I have company today.
Yesterday afternoon, Frankie started running a temp and had a nasty headache. His temp was pretty high early this morning, but he’s feeling much better now. I think it’s because he has Nurse Georgie Girl taking care of him.
I’ve been spinning this weekend. I started about 10 days ago with this:
This roving was three similar braids of merino from Alchemy Fibre Arts. Aren’t they beautiful? I had a total of about 12 ounces. I wound them onto three bobbins, and spun them into 3 ply.
I ended up with one giant skein and a second smaller skein, so I have 700 yards of sport weight to play with. Here’s the giant skein.
Does anyone have any suggestions for what I should knit with this eyeball bleeding bright yarn? Because I’m clueless!
Last night I started spinning a sedate blue green merino silk. What total opposites!
I’m also knitting a lot, but not on the same project, so I’ll probably have a finished project in a month!!! Yesterday I pulled out my Keelin cardigan. I started it last summer and I just need to finish knitting the sleeves. Of course the re-education process is a pain when you pick up an abandoned project and I have a mistake that I left. So, maybe I will have a finished project eventually.
Well, Frankie is hanging out watching cartoons. Maybe I’ll grab my knitting and join him. I don’t get to hang out with just him very often, so I better grab this moment!!! He’ll soon be a teenager that doesn’t want to hang out with Mom!
