A Marathon Project

I blame the rain for the ability to finish my 3 braid combo spin. Even though I was out of the house for most of the day on Saturday.

Here’s my in progress photo from the weekend:


This is the third braid, Iris You Were Here from Dyeabolical Yarns. So, all together:

And I plied and plied and plied on Saturday evening and all day Sunday.


Shall we take a closer look?


I genuinely believe that the best of all three braids shows through. I cannot believe the number of different color combos I got on this spin, and the way the colors played together was just amazing. I am sorry I didn’t have an opportunity to count yardage yet, but I am so ridiculously happy with this spin, I hope it makes something amazing!

This was one of those weekends that it rained so hard that there was some serious boredom and wandering going on around our house. Sometimes chores were done out of boredom, meaning I just couldn’t sit at the wheel or with knitting anymore. Our grass has grown by leaps and bounds with no ability to do anything about it because it never dries out. This week is likely to be a bit busy in the evenings. Mostly, I’d just like our outdoor plants to go back outdoors!! Thankfully that looks hopeful after today.
