more of the same, I guess

Since I last wrote I have sent off a couple baby gifts, and completed a test-knit with a yummy yarn. . . Creamy from Kollage Yarns. . . This stuff is dreamy soft! And I've never knit with milk before :) Of course, I forgot to take pics of any of it. As usual.

Still working on my Mirabella socks, as I took that break for the test-knit.

We planned a family vacation to Tahoe in October. I promised J I would take his sweater along and work on it exclusively . . . Maybe I can finish it - HA! This thing is never going to be done . . .

S starts pre-school next week! Whoo hoo!

More time for me to spin - oh yeah, I brought home my Ashford Traveller last Saturday. I love it, more than I expected to. I spun the rest of my 2 oz Corriedale into a bulky 2-ply, then took out my fleece study Texel, and have a thin single (maybe fingering-ish? I need to get wpi on it, I guess. . . ) and then got out the Rambouillet/corn silk and have been spinning that, hoping to get something near a sport/dk wt 3 ply out of that. I'm still working my way through the ball of roving (?), and loving every minute of it!

Guess that's all for today. See you next time!
