I obviously should have blogged about how depressing no rain was ages ago, because no sooner did I do so than…
You can’t believe how much greener that is than it was a few days ago. Well, Peggy probably can! It’s been a steady drizzle for several days now, still muggy and warm, but at least it’s raining.
And in happy news that this brings, I expect to finish that Pagoda shawl tonight and block it tomorrow. No, really! And right after that, the Foggy Foggy Dew! I can’t wait to see ’em both. Both are scrunched up on circulars and look like huge heaps of nothing, which is one of the hard things about big shawls.
Amusingly, one of this week’s blends looks just like my kitten:
See her licking her chops? Sheesh! That’s why cats aren’t allowed in the studio. I mean, the sheer horror! I was just setting stuff up in the light box…
It ended up having to be named Kaylee, because it does look exactly like her. But this blend is suri alpaca, tussah silk, merino, and BFL. Man, it’s really nice stuff (and yeah, it’s a dibs)!
Some other eye candy…
This was really a neat blends week, and it was good to be able to squeeze in some “smaller” runs after Batt Club and everything. I felt like I got very little uncommitted stuff done, but there are over 50 new batts available right now, so I guess that’s not so bad.
A couple of you asked about my offhanded mention of SOAR the other day. I will be attending, just as a regular schmoe, not as a vendor. This will be the first time I’ve gone, and I’m really looking forward to it. My father always enjoyed it a great deal and came back with new discoveries, and I think it’s going to be really neat. I promise I’ll take pictures to document how many spinning wheels fit in a Trans Am. Among other things. I look forward to meeting some of you there!
