Where does the time go, and how is it that the work days seem to drag on FOREVER, but the evenings just fly by? I fully intended to use the Sheep's WNBP (Wednesday Night Bullet Post) format for a post last night, but by the time I was ready to sit down, it was already 8:45! WTF? How did that happen? I hadn't knit a stitch or read a single blog yet, how could it be that late?
But it was, and I had to choose between writing a WNBP, reading blogs, knitting on the Sockapalooza sock, knitting on the Simple Knitted Bodice, or doing some spinning I've been wanting to get to. The spinning won out (the fact that I want to use the resulting yarn for Clover probably influenced my decision a teensy bit). I had some of the same fiber I spun for her hat left over and am hoping I can spin enough to make a teeney tiny pair of baby mittens. I'm spinning a whole lot finer now and will have to ply this. (I really don't have a clue how to do that, but I'll figure it out.)
Check out how thin this is compared to the first batch. It's also a LOT more consistent. After spinning for about 1 1/2 hours, I took the remaining fiber and pre-drafted it so it'll be all ready for the next spinning session. Here's what I have left.
I did finally finish the cuff of my Sockapalooza pal's 2nd sock this morning.
The plan is to knit the heel and at least through the gusset decreases tonight and try to finish it tomorrow night. I really don't know what is taking me so long to knit this pair of socks. Well, that's not really true; I do know. I seem to have a bit of ADD lately and can't stay focused on only one thing. There are just so many things I want to knit, then there's Ravelry, and blog reading, and planning baby knits. I need to focus!
Speaking of blog reading, Bloglines has done something really screwy to me. One minute it said I had something like 70 blogs to read, and the next minute it said 20! I do not read that fast folks; it just willey nilley marked a bunch of my feeds as read. I am not a happy camper!
