You know that expression about the best laid plans? Yeah. That was pretty much the case for me and Tallulah on Saturday. Oh, I brought her out to the tent, but it was cold. And rainy. And cold. And did I mention that it rained? So, there was no spinning. There was a bit of knitting (a dishcloth) and quite a bit of talking and eating and drinking, but no spinning. And I took no pictures. Sorry about that.
Edited to add: There are pictures here, courtesy of Martha.
I had a wonderful surprise, though. Maryse and Martha came to visit! It was fabulous of them to make the drive and I don’t want to get all sentimental or anything, but it really, really meant so much to me that they came out. In the rain, no less. They got to see what I do on these crazy weekends and two of my worlds collided and the universe didn’t explode or anything. Very, very, cool.
Of course, today, the sun is shining. So, allow me to entertain you with a finished pair of socks. These are for Jessica.
Pattern: Feather & Fan
Yarn: Knit Picks Sock Garden 100% Merino wool
I love this yarn! You need two skeins to knit a pair of socks but it’s cheap and soft and knits up beautifully. And this color combination was perfect for the transition from March’s red to April’s orange and yellow.
Okay, I’m off to
make some nachos cast on.
