We lucked out with the snow — only got about 4 inches yesterday. It was very pretty when it started, too.
But today it is terminally cold. The sun is shining brightly but there is a high wind making the wind chill more than chilly.
Still, we know how to stay warm. Ian has his Wendy-knit socks.
And Lucy has her AbFab afghan!
I kept busy.
Here’s the Autumn Afternoon mohair yarn:
And here’s some merino:
I did some more spinning, but I’ll show you that later in the week.
Lately I’ve been spinning singles on Lenny and plying on Katarina. Lenny is great with the singles (hubba hubba!) and Katarina plies like a dream. So they are a team.
Lucy pays pretty much no attention whatsoever to the roving and spinning. She did attempt to sit in my lap while I was spinning this weekend, but I think she was just wanting to be in a warm place. She . . . uh . . . got a little bit of tail fur yanked out and spun into the mohair when she was standing in my lap deciding whether or not to lie down. That decided her. She’s been glommed on to the AbFab afghan.
But Wait! There’s More!
Look what I finished!
It’s the Grape Arbor Shawl! I am beyond delighted with this!
And one more, for good measure.
I did not wet block this — just went over it carefully with the steam iron, and it blocked out very nicely.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go snuggle with Lucy.
