I’ve been busy today — picking up, chatting on the phone, doing the laundry, getting the grocery delivery, making muffins, and knitting.
Yesterday I skeined the rest of my handspun Bluefaced Leicester and washed it, and this afternoon I began knitting. The scarf I’d planned was too busy for the yarn, so I
fooled around experimented swatched until it occurred to me that the simplest pattern would be the best. 2X2 ribbing it is, then. The fabric is soft and drapey and has a high squoosh factor.
I think I’ve satisfied my urge to start something new, once again, and so I might get back to work on my sweater tonight.
It’s been completely quiet here today, when I haven’t been interacting with a person. Annabelle snores, of course, and I talk to her as if she’s going to respond, but otherwise I’ve enjoyed the quiet of no television or music or audiobook. I need that every once in a while!
