I've got 43 unread posts in my blogroll, an empty fridge, a garden full of ivy, and an unplanned 5th birthday party. What does that mean? You've got it... the end of the semester is nearly here!
And what am I excited about?
204 yards of DK weight handspun merino, tussah silk, and firestar from the color genius at Corgi Hill Farm. Seriously. I could dive into her entire etsy shop and not come up for air for weeks. Plus she has corgis, which I want, and reads all the same books I do. Chain plied because I'm loving using up every inch of this pretty, pretty stuff. Perhaps I'll buy two next time and ply them like a grownup spinner.
And because you've stuck with me this far: Sweet Pea spinning a few yards of the above yarn.
Which is only fair, because it will most like become a February Girl Sweater for her. I love spinning it, but I'm not sure I'd wear that much pink and brown.
Oh, and I made some socks. See? My regular pattern, dyed by me, 240 yards. This is actually the last of 4 sock blanks dyed by me and Sweet Pea a year or two ago. Frighteningly, when I opened the sock yarn drawer to start another pair... I'm down to like 4 skeins of sock yarn. And none of them green. Dudes. I need to order yarn.
