I’m the most boring person in the world lately. And I’m perfectly content with that.
I purchased this merino/yak roving
from Woolgatherings and it became this!
280 yards of 2 ply. I love it, but have no idea what it will be when it grows up!
I knit this in 4 days, due to lots of traveling. The Genius graduated from college (Yay!!!!!), so we made a very quick trip to see her, which led to lots of knitting time en route. The only change I made was to do the body in stockinette instead of garter stitch. I’ve probably commented before that I almost always hate garter stitch. Occasionally there will be a pattern that it works for, but in my opinion, that’s rare. Since I’m the knitting boss at my house, I can do stockinette stitch whenever I please.
And I don’t get to be the boss of much around here!!!
I’ve also been making more mini skeins.
If you don’t get the whole mini thing, don’t worry. The rest of my family doesn’t either. I do have a new excuse for trading them, because I bought a lamp at Target that I can fill with minis.
Won’t that be the cutest thing ever? Ok, fine. I’ll take photos when it’s a done deal. You’ll see! Oh, and there’s another glass lamp there that I think I need.
Also, if you buy one Home Dec item at Target, you’ll get the second item 50% off. And the offer is good through Saturday. (Nope, I’m not being paid to tell you that. I just bought a really cute lamp and the shade was 1/2 off and I felt the urge to
enable share this with you!)
Tomorrow my aunt and sister are coming over for a quilt day. Except I don’t think it will be a quilt day for me. I’m not in the mood. I have some gorgeous blue roving that I’m spinning right now, so that will probably be my project for the day. That, and making more mini skeins.
See! I told you I’m boring.
