Keeping Busy

I’ve got my winding station set up to wind off two skeins of yarn. Brad needs new socks and it takes more than one skein of fingering yarn for his size 13 feet so I am doing contrasting toes, heels and cuffs. I’ll use the lighter yarn on the swift for the main color and the darker skein for the contrast.

I had planned to have the second half an ounce of combed top spun by this evening but that didn’t happen today. I’ll work on it tomorrow.

I did manage to knit an inch on the ribbing of the Hooplah socks and I’ll continue to work on those this evening. I just heard the garage door. Brad is back from a meeting in a neighboring county, stopping for a bite to eat on the way home.

I’ve been watching older episodes of Midsomer Murders. “Three Funerals and a Wedding” is playing now on Pluto streaming video. It gives me something to watch while working on my socks and I hope to have another inch done on the ribbing before bedtime.

Hope your Hump Day has been pleasant and productive. Have a blessed Wednesday evening, 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.
