I've.been.sick. A re-run of the plague I had over Stitches (without the 'sexy laryngitis'). My temperature hovered around 100 degrees since starting last Sunday and didn't let up until yesterday. I realized that since Wednesday, the only people I've spoken to in person are those working the cash register at my local pharmacy. Blech.
Saturday though, things started looking up. No temp. Didn't feel too bad. Whole day to myself. What's a knitter/spinner to do?
Make pretty things, of course!
I took some different kinds of this:
And a few types of this:
Tossed in a little bit of this:
Steamed it a while, hung it to dry:
Last of the plain Corriedale I bought at Stitches '07.
The very first yarn I spun on my own wheel ever:
A little experimenation with Bombyx Silk:
Some formerly white Lana Gatto I won from Tammy last year:
And remember the Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool I got at the swap a little while ago?
I finished Lizard Ridge today!
I made it with just one colorway, #188, and opted to make it out of strips rather than blocks. Purty, huh? It's for our friends who just got married (and forced us to come to Hawaii to attend the wedding). They gave me a reason to go to Hawaii for the first time; don't you agree they deserve Lizard Ridge?
