Back To Reality
Or at least, back to work. Like Christmas always did when I was a kid, Rhinebeck went by so quickly, especially after all the anticipation.
Next Few Weeks
This week and the next two will have me traveling quite a bit. I’ll be continuing to travel to Wilmington, Delaware each week, but also in the middle of each week, I’ll be traveling to Grand Rapids, Michigan, Cleveland, Ohio, and Portland, Oregon.
With all this travel, I’m not quite sure how much time I’ll be able to devote to blogging or the knitting/spinning/crocheting that gives me reason to blog.
I’ll do what I can to keep up.
Please check out this great idea. It’s an auction of designer sweaters from various publications that will benefit Rwanda. If there’s anything you can bid on, please do.
I didn’t give a progress report on Monday, but not because of lack of progress.
You’ll note, I’ve added 2 more large stars, and filled in five of the small motifs as well. It’s nice when the countdown number of 76 stars left is getting closer to the number already completed. Soon enough, it will be all down hill.
I finished up the second spool of Corriedale singles, and then double-plied it to get this lovely hank of approximately worsted weight yarn.
This is 426 yards (or 6.2 ounces) of soft, silky, lofty yarn. I started to ply up the remainder of the singles, but didn’t finish, so I’ll post about progress on more Corriedale next week.
More Stash Purchases – Books
Having had the opportunity to meet Véronik Avery at Rhinebeck, I now definitely want her book, Knitting Classic Style. Based on Carol’s no-bull review, I should have already purchased it, but I hadn’t. You know it’s interesting how getting to know someone’s personality, even a little bit, makes me more interested in owning their book.
