I made this.
Take a closer look.
It came out so well I wish I had made more than one ounce! But now I know I can dye fiber and spin it into yarn. Pretty stinking amazing.
Meanwhile… I finished Reyna (photos to come after blocking) and so had nothing on my needles! (I don’t count the vest that is buried in the bottom of the basket. I took the needle out to use it for something else and can’t remember if it was an 8 or a 9. I might have to start that one over again.)
This morning I was up early with the thunderstorm, and no one else was, so this might have happened:
That’s 4 shawls. Patterns chosen, yarn and beads chosen, needles assigned, and in three cases, patterns printed.
Two are already cast on. I am determined to get three of them going today, so I have options when knitting. Completely breaking my rule on number of WIPs. I blame it on the orange baby set. I need blues and teals and grays in my world, and these four shawls are those colors. Yup. All of them. I will likely sell some, but I might not, if I love them all. Ha!
Also today we are going to a graduation party mid-day. Amy’s nephew’s son graduated from high school this year, down in PA. Since his whole family lives up here, they are throwing him a party now, when everyone is in Maine. It will be nice to see everyone, and hear what they are all up to.
Tomorrow is a picnic at Mom’s – all siblings and some nieces and a nephew, I expect. No occasion, officially, although it is Mom and B’s anniversary.
It is a family party type weekend! All the best kind of crazy. Lots of driving, lots of visiting. And that means lots of knitting, so I had better go get those shawls cast on so I have something to work on all weekend. 🙂
