Even though I normally hate the heat, today I love it. It finally feels like summer! I did some very small yard chores and spent a good long time scrubbing the pool (and it is looking almost perfect as a result. I think one more bout of scrubbing will do it.)
I had a good birthday supper with A, Mom, and B on Friday night, and Saturday at Whorls and Purls they had a combo birthday and “hey we missed each other” gathering which had yummy food and loads of laughing and chatting and knitting.
And all weekend I have been interspersing knitting with spinning. 🙂 I want to master this wheel before July when I begin my unofficial Tour de Fleece with my spinning friends at Whorls and Purls and also the Friends of Knitting Sarah over on Ravelry.
I filled two bobbins with singles of Spring Queen and Very Berry and pled them together. I have more of each to spin, but I have about 140 yards of a nice thick worsted weight drying in the laundry room. Isn’t it pretty?
A and I stopped at our favorite local take-out place for lunch today – Crosby’s – where I had a lovely crabmeat roll and a chocolate shake to end my birthday food weekend. Tomorrow I start a whole 30 month. It is hard but it works, so I am ready for it. (she said, munching on M and Ms)
Nothing much else is new – knitting projects are plodding along. The green sweater (top down) is at last down past the sleeve separation, so it will feel like it is going faster. The handspun vest (bottom up) is above the waist but not yet to the armholes. Socks are moving along, I am ready to turn a heel on the second sock. And the Moon and sky shawl is near the end of the second lace section. It’s all good but I have no photos to share today. 🙂
