I was hoping to think of something special for a milestone post. But the most special thing going on seems to be that I put a knot in my back from spinning too much, and had to take a few days applying heat, resting, and mostly groaning. Alternating with grumbling. And jonesing for the wheel...
Here's what I've got so far:
One thing I've learned is that it takes a looooong time to fill a bobbin with singles for laceweight. I'm getting close to being halfway through that first 2oz batch of merino-tencel. At this rate, I may finish the plying in time for cake and ice cream at my 100th birthday party.
I did manage to get a little knitting done. The scarf moves forward:
It's actually a simple slip-stitch pattern, with only one color at a time in play. I like the way it looks more complicated than it is.
And today started with a cold rainy morning - perfect for staying indoors and baking. I invented a recipe for oatmeal/apple/walnut scones. Though, technically it's really a bannock, since it's baked in one piece.
Want a closer look?
I'm going to try to sneak in a little spinning today, now that my back is better. I just need to remember to step away from the wheel...
