Finished the Cinnamon Wave Wrap, except for blocking of course.
Finished spinning and plying the BFL from Spunky Eclectic in colorway Venus. Glorius, soft brown with wine accents. I plied it on itself. I made a center pull ball and plied from both ends. Only problem was when I got to the very end--about 5 yards left or so. But it gently untangled and I saved the whole shebang! Now--what can I make with it. I am thinking a lacy scarf as it is VERY soft and lush feeling. Or a small shoulder shawl of some kind--what do they call them--a fichu? I think that is it. I found a pattern to purchase (baxterknits.blogspot.com) that has caught my eye. I will debate that, althoght it takes more yarn than I have of Venus, I could find something else to make it out of.
The yarn is about dk weight and over 100 yards, but not sure exactly how many. I will need to see what kind of pattern I can come up with.
I worked for Jane at the store yesterday. I almost broke even. I did spend $16 on yarn for a shawl, possibly to donate or sell. It was colors that are not "mine" so it would be easy to give up.
I also splurged on the last 2 skeins she had of Lorna's Laces Liberty, in the worsted weight wool and mohair blend (bullfrogs & butterflies?). I have always loved that color way and am comtemplating a shape-it scarf or something similar from that.
Picked beans in the near dark last night. I need to put a canopy over the garden if Hubby wants me to pick beans in this heat.
I'm ready for a blizzard.
