Norwegian hat is done! For now. I'm not 100% sure on the lining, but I figure I'll wear it for a while and see how I feel. (I do like wearing it.) Photos when I can combine Scott, sunlight and me with hat.
I want to do a post but I'm not feeling very post-y. Know what I mean? I've been fighting off a cold the last several days and I'll be heading to bed early again today to ward it off.
The little goober gave me a scare last week. She's been very active throughout my workday for the last couple of weeks, and without warning, went into seeming hibernation for several days. That and a couple of other things panicked me so off to the doctor we went, Scott driving and consoling, me crying. Everything is fine, everything checks out, and naturally, as soon as I was back in the office, she started moving around again. I'm sure an ultrasound would have revealed an innocent look on her face. I'm back to trying not to worry about things I can't control, and she's back to bopping around to her own drummer.
There has been some spinning, but I'm not up to talking about it. Here's a peak, though:
Crosspatch Creations batts spun up
What I can show you without much talk is some fiber that's joined the flock in the last couple of months.
From The Fiber Denn, some lovely finn and merino (8 oz ea):
I want to eat up those blues
From Hello Yarn, gorgeous merino/silk (4 oz ea):
my photos don't do the colors justice, though Adrian's photos are quite good
And from Alpaca Direct some Ashland Bay multi-colored merino (found them via Google Checkout promo) in Sandalwood (2 lbs) and Sapphire (4 oz):
All happy shopping experiences. Yum yum.
