Formula for a lazy blog post: take pictures and add captions. And away we go!
It's not easy being my cat. Fifty-Fifty can attest to this. I bug her when she's grooming,
I bug her when she is resting,
and I bug her when she is plotting her escape from this evil place where cameras are so rudely shoved into her face.
Kimchicrafts hosted a lovely knit together at her place. I'm beginning to suspect that all these knit togethers are just an excuse to indulge in wine and cheese. And cookies. And cake. (This is certainly NOT a complaint!) She served this English cheddar cheese with caramelized onions that I have since become obsessed with. So much so that I took many pictures of my own personal block of cheese scored from Trader Joe's. If I can figure out a way for the clickity-clack of my knitting needles to become a more aerobic hobby, I could eat more cheese!
On the knitting front, I've been plugging away at the never ending blanket. However, I did stretch my rules about not working on another WIP by, ahem, spinning some lovely tussah silk. See, the blanket is a knitting project, while this yarn is a spinning project. Totally different realms!
The roving was from Fiber Fiend and the colorway is Blackbery Swirl. My 2 ounces turned into 203 yards of 2 ply silk. Now, what can I make with it? Any ideas? It is a little thicker than fingering weight yarn.
Sunsets have been amazing around here. I look out the window and think to myself, now that would make a lovely colorway for sock yarn.
