Hello. Once again, it is time for Random Wednesday. A time when your blogging hostess (me) mentally meanders all over kingdom come. I have not taken pictures lately. I have very little to show. In fact, I have things to show, but I am suffering from a serious (but non-fatal) case of mental dullness. Every once in a while my mind goes blank (ok, more often than I want to admit) and I can’t think of anything to show you. There is plenty to show, but I don’t think of it. I’m sure those of you who are kind souls will say that it’s because I have so much on my mind. Keep those thoughts.
I have been working on the Tonks sock. Socks are slow going for me. I don’t knit on them unless I’m someplace away from home. I have started working on them during lunch. It has helped, but I’m still on the leg of the first sock. I’m not going to be able to knit 6 pair of socks in one year. I will look at going for three pair. More attainable and less stressful that way. That, plus this……………..
Yes, it is a terrible picture. But, it is a lesson. Worsted yarn for lace requires a larger needle. That is, unless you want something that looks like a wad of used Kl**n*x. You cannot see the pattern to save your life. No amount of blocking would help this baby. I tried. Alternate plans have been made. Each mistake is a lesson. Thank goodness I paid attention early on this time. The yarn in Dreams in Color Classy. It has been ripped and wound for another project in the future.
I have been spinning this week. It adds up to about 10 minutes a day so it’s going to take some time before anything shows, but I will work at being better at documenting my progress (i.e. taking pictures).
So, how’s about my soundtrack? I’m a big Joni Mitchell fan. She just slips into the stream of music that I listen to and this one is a favorite.
Have a good one!!
