I have been busy spinning and spinning and spinning all week. On Friday I washed and soaked and hung and set some twist.
zero "Blake's Lamb" and Spunky unknown
I have started into my stash of Spunky roving of the month selections. People are getting handspun garter stitch scarves or hats for Christmas this year. Nothing fancy, but loverly handspun.
nightshade 2 ply
This came as the "Nightshade" colorway from Spunky Eclectic a few months back. It is going to become the "Tea In The Woods Scarf" for one of my tea friends. It has the amber of tea, the green and browns of the forest, the blues of a lake in summer and the black of the night sky. Tonight I'll ply the last spindleful and tomorrow I'll set the twist. I love the idea of giving away my handspun for Christmas this year.
We drove to Yosemite yesterday to get the girl.
The view was pretty consistent all the way up highway 41 into the mountains. Bus butt.
It got a lot better once we got off the main road.
We split the driving and I brought along some knitting for the long stretches.
It was 13 hours of driving. We got to Yosemite, then we turned right around and came home. I'm glad we went though, I'd never seen that country and it was beautiful. I feel blessed to have experienced it.
Later this week we are going to a funeral. I'm trying not to think about it much because every time I do, my heart breaks all over again for the family.
In the meantime, I will keep spinning and spinning the sorrow away.
