Another Day

I am still home. ....

I am finding that I really do not like this waiting for the call to go back to work some place. All the years I have been doing this job, it has never been a problem but now....
I have been trying to work on some things and not think about it.

Finished dying the yarn I had spun and now I am plying it. Plied wraps per inch is approximately 14 which makes this a sport yarn The first ball that I made was 350 yards, I think I will have about the same for the second ball. I am not sure whether I am going to use it to weave something or knit a pair of socks. The yarn is super wash merino.

I have two skeins of the beautiful yarn I purchased at Crash into Ewe that I am looking for the perfect pattern. I only have 840 yards so it will have to be a large scarf or small shawl. If you have an idea for a great pattern, let me know. The silver that runs throughout the yarn makes it so that I need to make something special. The yarn is 73% superwash merino/ 20% silk/ 15% nylon, 2% silver.

Started on a new sweater, Mr. Greenjean's . This is such a cute sweater. I love the Tranquility yarn by MoonCake, Inc. purchased it from The Yarn Cafe in Minnesota with no idea of what I was going to do with it.

The yarn is 100% worsted weight wool, Luxurious - a delight to the fingers!
Variance in color adds visual interest. Ultra soft and perfect for baby, felting or year-round knitting projects. Amazing color depth and there is 73 gorgeous colors! This yarn is Olive.

I will buy more only because I love the feel of it against my skin. You get 215 yds for $11.00

I also started warping the loom that I use to make rugs so that I can make another rug using the last of the thrums yarn. That will only take me a day so I just need to get to it. Knitting has taken me away from my weaving but I do want to get back to it.
