We've got flowers!!! Woohoo!! Now I can truly believe that winter is gone for good this time :-). Can you notice anything different about this sock? Go on.....look a little closer....I'll wait.
It's missing the black stripes!
I don't typically think of myself as an anal person, in fact, my husband probably wishes that I were just a little bit more so at times, but I find myself stressing a little about the fact that these socks are not going to match at.all. How silly is that for me to stress? Now, I know that I could pull from a different part of the ball and create the same striping and I was sorely tempted to do that....but knowing that I would have to weave those ends in when I am finished, has helped me to decide just to go with it and just see what happens.
Other fibery things......garden rovings...
Given the warm spring like weather we are enjoying, the garden colors of pink and green were calling to me this week, so I spent a few hours the other night predrafting the CMF roving that Marisol gifted to me. Now knowing that one end of the roving is a bit darker than the other, I will be more careful to mix it all up when I am spinning it.
Have I mentioned how much I love spinning this stuff? I think I may have, but I will say it again.....Love.it!
...And pots of yarn.......
The other thing I have been very busy working at is getting ready for the Fiber Frolic next month. What perfect weather we have had for dyeing. The days have been warm with a wonderful warm breeze that has made for perfect drying yarn weather.
The girls and I are on our own this week as Ken is off visiting family. I'm thinking it's going to be a weekend of gardening and spinning ......hmmm...maybe I will watch the girls rake while I spin.
Nah....they will never go for it....LOL!
