Taking a Moment

Boy has it been busy around here! I really imagined downtime between the conference and Halloween. But, that just hasn’t happened. Last weekend we completely overextended ourselves with social events, and I’ve started this week at a severe alone time/down time deficit.

Add to that the fact that I didn’t have knitting on my needles from Thursday evening to Saturday evening. I ended up, on Friday, getting quite upset with my next door neighbor and stomping around the house about it. Mr. Ink mentioned later that he thought I wouldn’t have gotten quite so upset if I’d had a bit of knitting to take the edge off. I suspect he’s right.

I now have a new sweater on the needles, as well as a new shawl. I’ve also done a bunch of spinning/plying. So much to show, but the yarn needs to dry, and the sweater isn’t interesting, and I keep forgetting to get a picture of the shawl. Until today.

I had all this great, interesting, different types of yarns all dyed in the same colorway from the Taos trip last year. I finally pulled out a shawl to work on. I am just alternating yarns as I see fit. I bet I’ll never wear this because I think mohair is really the most miserable stuff. But, I am going to have a great time knitting it, and it has many awesome memories attached to it.

The colors still remind me of the chickens at our casita while we were out in Taos.

More from me very soon, cross your fingers that some of the handspun has decided to dry!

    • I think you are correct, we just aren’t used to this. Also, it’s more than 10 oz in one skein, wasn’t bound to dry fast no matter what!
