Fish and Visitors

Yep, it’s official, I am visitor’d out. We’ve had a visitor in the house for a week and a half. I THINK he’s leaving tonight, but I am not sure. While I am immensely grateful to have a house big enough to host family members that need to stay for a bit, apparently a guest digging through my craft room closet and finding and using tools without asking is my own personal limit to what I can handle with a guest.

It didn’t help that we went shopping last evening. I hate shopping with an overwhelming passion. For real, it’s one of my least favorite things to do. Even a successful shopping trip, such as we had last evening, puts me in a foul mood that can last for days. I know that sounds crazy, but I REALLY hate shopping.

So, basically, our guest was set up for failure last evening no matter what he did, but digging through my craft room closet was probably the worst thing that he could have tried. Craft room closet, sacrosanct. Am I right?

In the saga of my 8 oz of singles being plied and my new wild flyer, after overfilling the bobbin quite a bit:


I ultimately could not fit all 8 oz. onto one bobbin. Here’s what I had left:


So, I made the second skein. I was literally at a point where I couldn’t get the flyer to turn anymore, which is entirely the reason I quit packing more wool on there.

Hopefully I’ll have a dry skein ready to show off soon, it’s a lot of yarn! It might even be laceweight sweater amount. We’ll have to see, I didn’t count it ahead of time.

As soon as I finished this project and got it soaking, I went back to my wheel to ply my undyed delaine wool singles. Since it’s less than 4 ounces and a 3 ply, that’s going very quickly, I should be done tonight.

I should probably get back to some knitting again! Maybe the entrelac lace wall hanging I need to finish? That would probably be good.
