Back to Christmas

Yup. I started a Christmas present today. Don’t hate me.:)

Singles

I got all eight ounces spun up into singles; I’ll ply it over the next few days.

Saturday spin

I’m trying my hand at spinning for a project, so I pulled a big ball of mystery fiber from the stash – it is probably a wool/silk blend, but I done know what kind of wool. Feels like maybe merino.

Anyway, we’ll see how consistent I can be over this 8 oz bump.

Just about done with this sunset-colored scarf!

On a Sunday

It’s after dinner and the Mr and I are relaxing on the porch, enjoying the unseasonably warm evening.

I’m wearing a dress I recently made myself and reading The Hobbit, listening to lawn mowers and robins, while the Mr dozes and snores a bit.:) He mowed the yard earlier while I sewed. All in all, quite a lovely end to the day.

Mmmm, linen

I fed the sewing bug and just got a bunch of linen fabric in four colors to make dresses and tops out of. It all needs to be washed a couple times before I start laying out patterns, so tonight I’m just admiring it.

Ugh

Tooth pain. It’s the worst! A root canal on Thursday has led to increasing pain and swelling, so that I can hardly think. Fever and swelling in half my face, even with ibuprofen every 6 hours… Today the dentist thinks it is infected and prescribed an antibiotic, which I’m hoping kicks in soon.
In other news, the garden is waking up; lettuce and peas are sprouting.

I started a new crochet project but didn’t take a picture yet. Maybe tomorrow.
