This is the time of the month (and I tend to think of knitting in months) where I knit and work and spin, and NOTHING gets finished. My Idlewood has made some progress. I added some colorful entrelac squares, which ended up lower than planned, but it was nice to knit some color.
Also added some length to the scarf. I spent a very nice Spring afternoon, sitting on the grass in the local Botanical Gardens, knitting this crazy thing and listening to audiobooks. It makes me feel like a mad knitter granny making the sleeve of a crazy jumper for an unfortunate relation... lol. It's using up some of my handspun stash brilliantly, though, and will certainly be warm.
It's half done (ie. 250g) and 80cm long.
I started some socks in thick yarn, socks that are taking far too long for wool that thick. The socks I'm making for Mum and for Byron get a few rounds done here and there, but are a long way from finished. I started spinning some random merino, and hours are falling into it like a black hole. I spin and spin, and no progress is made!
But I'm in very good spirits. My awesome Dad managed to fix my computer. I still have another week of holidays to go. The weather has been getting warmer. And next week... maybe that's when I'll finish lots of things.
