Not a lot of progress was made doing “real” endeavors today, but I worked on some fibery pursuits between laundry and other housework.
I finished spinning some heavy singles with the roving from Susan. This may need to be soaked again and blocked using something heavy to relax the little curly pieces. After trying to spin skinny yarn I have a really hard time making a heavier yarn that is consistent with it’s size and twist.
The newest copy of Rowan magazine arrived. The patterns in this issue are beautiful, classic and wearable. Some creations look fabulous on models in certain staged environments, but they just don’t translate well into real life. Many of these would.
In fact, I’m contemplating frogging my Henley Perfected and using the yarn to make this sweater instead (minus the little leaf tab on the collar). I like loose fitting sweaters that end below the hip. They’re more versatile and forgiving imo.
I finished the first 43 rows of Rivendell. This is a fun pattern to knit, but as the entire sock is charted it would not be a good travel project.
Finally, I tried to be stealthy and catch A3 and my DH playing in the backyard.
I would have been successful too had Bonny not decided to rat me out by meowing loudly and scratching the porch post I was ducking behind.
Once I’d been spotted with the camera they didn’t want to play anymore. Thanks, Bonny. No special nip for you!
