Stupefied kind of sums up how I felt when I woke up this morning. I’ve been doing some contract software testing during the work week and I’m feeling a little more zapped than usual on the weekend. I mean, I didn’t even post a spinning update last week. The days are just whipping by.
Rest assured, though, there has been some spinning in the last 2 weeks. I did finish up the beautiful pink Teeswater. It turned out to be only about fingering weight and just over 400 yards, which was a bit of a surprise to me, but it’s still lovely. It’s not quite this bright in person:
And then there’s this bright yellow skein of merino (~50g) that I think I’m still going to try to turn into a hat. That there’s not much extra time these days, and I have a deadline knitting project that I’m currently working on when I’m out at the park with the kids. Perhaps when it’s done I’ll wind up this sunshine yarn.
In the mean time, the Feb. 2013 Southern Cross Fibre club offering (Sweet Wine on Corriedale) hopped on the wheel. It’s going to be a while because the singles are skinny, but I’m enjoying it.
All is going well with the family. School is proceeding fairly smoothly. My daughter is progressing in her reading and now attacks unfamiliar words without the pain and annoyance of last year. My son is just on the verge of becoming a real reader. He thinks he doesn’t know things, but he does. Meanwhile, Rhinebeck is just a couple of weekends away. I’m going to be there and I’m hoping for some lovely weather.
