I like the number 21. It’s not only my birthday, but it’s divisible by 3 and by 7 and it’s not an even number. Don’t try and tell me that’s weird – it’s perfectly logical thank you very much.
Today was a busy day at work. Not stressful, frantic busy – just full, working lunch kind of busy. I like those days, though I wish I had actually accomplished more.
This evening has been a crafty one and that makes me pretty happy.
Two of my top 3 points from today are fibre related;
- I’m making great progress on my brother’s beanie. He requested one and needs it for warmth so I’m knitting it with a NZ possum / nylon blend. Very warm, even if the colour blends in seamlessly with my blue/gray couch.
Pattern is my own – it’s just a simple garter rib. I don’t think I’ll release it as a pattern but I’ll have a look on Ravelry and if there isn’t a similar one I might write up a recipe and release it for free…
- I pulled out my electronic spinning wheel (Ashford e-Spinner, if you’re curious) and spun up some of the 100% merino roving I dyed up a little while ago.
I’m very much a novice spinner and the consistency of my singles leaves a lot to be desired, but I think tonight’s efforts went well. They’re also the thinnest I’ve spun to date, so I’m hoping they’ll make a useable fingering/sport weight three ply (I plan to chain ply).
- An exciting piece of life admin; I’ve set up Skype on my laptop so that I can video call with The Boyfriend without having to worry about propping up my phone. This is great news, even if only in my head. Funnily enough, that’s the whole point of this list so it counts.
Tomorrow will be an equally good (or, perhaps even better?) day. Onwards!
