Jacob is getting ready to start school on Tuesday. We went school clothes shopping for him since the Endeavor Academy has a pretty strict dress code. No jeans, collared shirts and sweaters etc. must be solid colored. I like that about the school. No competition in the way of who has what clothing etc.
I added a bunch more yarn pictures to my stash on Ravelry; which is long overdue and I did a little clean up work on my projects page – much too much stuff that I had frogged or had put in hibernation for way too long. I’m still working on the BFL socks but I needed a break from knitting the simple lace pattern and do something rather mindless so I’m finishing the spinning for the Spirogyra fingerless mitts that I started forever ago. I started with 4 oz of a merino/tencel blend in shades of brown/purple/blue fading to whiteish at both ends. It’s called Blue Jean Teddy Bear, I think, or Denim Teddy Bear (I’m too tired to look it up right now). I split the roving into 2 identical sections and the split them in half. I fluffed and predrafted the halves together and spun the first section into singles of about 28 wpi, hoping for about 12-14 wpi after chain plying. I’m starting on half number two of the spinning now and I hope it goes as smoothly as the first half did. Fingers crossed.
That’s all for now, it’s late and I need sleep. 🙂 More later.
