One Down, One To Go

I finished spinning the first four ounces of BFL/Tussah combed top last night and I have the next four ounces weighed out and divided into half ounce strips for ease in spinning. I swapped out the bobbins and started the next one before calling it a day at 9:45 pm. Still feeling a bit under the weather even though I’m much better than the previous few days.

We went walking yesterday afternoon late but called a halt and made it a short walk. I needed some fresh air and exercise but it was obvious that I didn’t need to walk the entire distance we usually do so we went to the house and Brad made me a cup of hot peppermint tea and I dozed off in the recliner.

I’ll work on finishing the gusset increases for the Hooplah socks today and see if I can keep both socks on the same needle like I planned. I woke up to a sunny morning and 48° outside this morning and the high will be around 66° this afternoon. It’s a bit windy and I don’t need to be outside at all. Definitely got a sinus infection trying to flare up. Time for a cup of coffee and a toasted English muffin. And knitting. I’m in the mood to work on my socks.

Brad will call in a few hours and we’ll decide what he’s bringing for lunch after he gets the grandkids back to the farm after church. The house is warm and cozy and I’ve got plenty to keep me occupied this morning. Have a blessed Sunday, ya’ll.

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl. I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles. In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s. I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
