November Rain? still....

Sheesh, it's raining again. What's up with that? I know one thing, it's kicking the crap out of my sinuses. Enough already.

I finished both sweaters for the Dutchicans. The darker one is the same as the lighter one, but the details are murky due to the crappy indoor lighting. And last night at the group in Troy I did this: I'll make one more exactly like it and the package will be ready to get sent out. I know the boys will be too small to wear these for a while, but they'll be waiting for them as soon as they are bigger.

I'm still plugging along on the shawl for my mom, and ordered a 52" cable from Denise and an extra set of size 15's. I'm going with the glue spec to tacky them up a bit, and I hope the ginormous cable will be big enough to get thru the rest of the shawl. It's pretty scrunched up on the 29" it's on now. I need to pick up the SO's sweater again, I don't know WHY that thing is just dragging. I'm actually thinking of casting on a pair of socks for him to work on at the same time, just to combat boredom.

I spun for about an hour last night, and I tell you what, that was really relaxing. There's something very calming about the spin-spin-spinning of a well oiled wheel and watching the beautiful single flow out of merino and angora in a heavenly silver gray color. I wonder what it's going to be..... I hope to spin some more this weekend, I've missed it. I still wish I could figure out some way to quit my job and do that full time, I'd be so relaxed I wouldn't recognize myself. I'll keep dreaming.

Have a great day! Oh, and my blogiversary is coming up the end of this month. I can hardly believe I've been doing this blogging thing for a whole year now. Take care!

The sweaters and hat are cute, Dana! I have a 52" Denise cable-- it's freakishly huge but should be perfect for what you need.
Cute sweaters, some day I will get over my fear of seaming. I can't even imagine a 52" cable! You could jump rope with it! Have a good turkey day, you'll have to make it out to Dearborn one of these Tuesday evenings .
Try my cure - take up crochet instead - much more frustrating [although the cure hasn't worked for me, so what do I know?}
Best wishes
