Like The Queen
Whatever happens to strike my fancy, but surely some sort of fiber content.

Another gray day in store for us. I am of 2 minds about the laundry but there is at least one load of wet clothes waiting to be hung out. Disirregardless of the weather. But if it doesn’t rain I want to dye up some fiber. I plucked some lovely black gum leaves on a walk yesterday, full of the vibrancy of autumn, and I want to see if I can capture their colors in wool. I think I shall work with the superwash merino. Perhaps I can have a pair of black gum socks. mmmmm.

I didn’t knit a stitch on the SGV. HeyBaby began to sing her siren song and I worked some more on the RED merino/cashmere I got from Spirit Trail Fibers. Jen sent me 4 oz and I’ve just about spun up 2 of them. I’ve had such sporadic spinning opportunities that I haven’t a clue as to how evenly this bobbin of singles is going to turn out. It’s fairly fine with rather a good deal of twist, I know. I’m quite anxious to ply it and when I’ve spun up the last 3 birds nests I will - today sometime. And yes I will work on SGV as well. Maybe. Depending upon just who comes to see us today. It’s one of those up-in-the-air sorts of days where folk said they would be coming but would get back with us to confirm but haven’t.

Still - I don’t intend to do anything else, other than to vacuum the living room rugs. Today is to be a fiber day. Ha! beginning with laundry and ending with ... a not quite finished vest.
