Secondly, the sweater is finished, although (obviously) not blocked. It was fun, and as usual, I totally enjoyed knitting with my handspun. Nothing better! I have more than half of the yarn left, so another "spicy pumpkin" sweater will be knit eventually.
I needed a more portable project, so I started a pair of self-striping socks a week or so ago. Should have them finished soon. Does anyone else see "Brach's Neopolitan Candy" in these? Minus the green stripe, but my mind keeps traveling there......
Another portable project may be knitting these skeins up. Sport weight "Gales Art" Merino. Really nice yarns. 275yds/130yds,
this. If anyone has any other suggestions, I'd appreciate the help. The color runs in the variegated are short, so they should not stripe, although sometimes short ones pile up into a striping affect too. We'll see. They will be bright and happy if nothing else.
Another fiber day is on my calender for this Thursday. A "sit and spin" in my living room with a like-minded friend. Should be fun! But...I need to figure out what my next spinning project will be. I have several colorwork mittens in my mental que to knit, so I will probably spin for those.
And last, I leave you with a BG giggle. This week I brought BG home from preschool on Friday, and we had a "sleep-over" Friday night. (A fun time was had by all!) He seems quite happy with the new arrangement of staying home with mom, but I did have to laugh out loud when on the way home, he was "ordering" his normal lunch time foods. All his favorite..... And when I assured him we had the fridge/freezer stocked as normal, he told me all his mom would feed him for lunch was BROCCOLI! and "I HATE broccoli". He is a corker! Of course, later that evening while we were ordering dinner at a restaurant, Granpa (who had heard the Broccoli story earlier in the day) had to suggest that BG order Broccoli as the side with his meal. And of course, grandpa was rewarded with the response he was hoping for! Guess they are both corkers!!!
Have a good weekend, and enjoy your own giggles of life.......
