I don't have time to spin in the fall. It's taken me weeks to manage a tiny 1.75 ounces. But oh, it's so lovely. I do wish I had to time to finish the rest of the braid. Since that is unlikely any time soon, I'll go ahead and post a glamour shot. ;)
This is my first braid from Fat Cat Knits 'Wizard Island'. I'm impressed. I ordered merino and it was fluffy and not at all dense or felted like some braids can be. I got about 130 something yards, chain plied. Not bad for half a braid and quite a bit better than I get with superwash merino.
The weighing of my teeny tiny little skeins.
I haven't had much time for knitting lately either. Rather, all my current knitting requires a paper pattern and that's tricky to manage on the go. I need to cast on some basic, mindless socks to keep my hands busy. They are the perfect travel project.
I've been parenting on my own for a good bit of this month. I'm uncomfortably busy and I'm trying to figure out if I need to change our schedule somehow, put the children in regular school, or start drinking. One of those things. But I shall not make any hasty decisions (or hit the liquor store) until my husband returns because that might immediately and dramatically improve my outlook. I miss him.
