I’m just popping in for a quick update to say, the parking and drafting has continued. There was a big milestone yesterday – I was finally able to let the spindle fall toward the floor and spin rather than just park and draft. It happened while I was demonstrating my new abilities to my sis who was in town with my nephew, so I haven’t had time to really play with it. I don’t think they quite appreciated the gravity of the moment… get it? gravity? drop spindle? Don’t worry, I’m aware of my lameness. Anyway, next step is to devour this book I picked up at the library:
So I don’t have a ton of photos but I’ll just throw in this one, which pretty much exemplifies my week:
That would be the Daybreak I’m almost finished with (I know, very fast, but sometimes you just can’t put it down. It’s funny how much knitting you can get done when you quit reading, cooking, doing housework, and forego basic hygiene. The yarn is Madelinetosh Vintage in Charcoal and Begonia Leaf. It looks like I may even get away with only one skein of each (I did the smallest size since this is a worsted weight yarn).
I’ve also been on a hot tea kick lately for some reason, and I’m really loving the vanilla comoro decaf from Harney & Sons. It’s really delicious with a splash of almond milk. Also this week I finally finished watching The Grand Budapest Hotel, during which I fell asleep the first time. (Whoops…) It was good. In fact, we had a discussion about Wes Anderson movies and Bill Murray on the podcast episode we recorded today at the library (and I was filling in for Brian today. Let’s not make that a habit!)
I’m hoping to spend some quality time this weekend out on my porch with a cuppa and some wool, maybe a kitty or two keeping me company. A girl can dream, right?
Yo, this post has an affiliate link. If you click the link and buy the book I recommended, I get a little kickback. M’s college fund thanks you.
