The past couple of days have not gone quite as anticipated. I didn’t really have the headspace to blog, and to be honest, still don’t. Today I have a headache, and I think its dehydration in nature. I took a couple tylenol and am pounding water. *sip, sip*
I started my 2nd “Wet Your Plants” sock. I modified the first row slightly, and am infinitely happy with this small modification. I haven’t knit much on them this weekend. Since I’m verifying the chart is correct so I can write out for written instructions, I need to devote a lot of attention! I’m also knitting these on size 1s, so they are SLOW going! I prefer to knit my socks on 1.5 or 2s so they are a faster knit.
This week I didn’t have a knit or crochet project I was interested in working on, so I finished spinning up some fiber I started spinning a FEW YEARS AGO. I’m letting it rest on the bobbin until I can get it hanked for wash and whacking. Hopefully this week?? My wheel is working meh these days; I really need to get a full overhaul. The thought of buying a brand new wheel gives me sticker shock!
Today, I decided to take my knitting for a walk and got stuck in a rain shower- I still got a mile done. But here’s a thing about me: I REALLY REALLY REALLY dislike walking in the rain. Damp clammy hands, water running into my eyes, and wet feet are NOT my jam. They garter shawl I’m working on didn’t get too wet (I stuffed it back into the project bag!). Had I waited 45 minutes, the rain would have passed and it would be sunny, a bit humid, but only in the low 80s. I’ll just have to try again another day.
The Mitty Mitt Mittens are complete. They need a photo shoot and some pattern tech editing.
And that was week 46!
