It's been a long time.
Christmas knitting took up a lot of my free time, and work took up the rest. Tasks expand to fill the time one has, I guess :)
I'm currently working on a new pair of socks for DP, since I haven't gotten around to darning his old ones. I need to keep a closer watch on thin spots, so I can catch them before they become huge holes, which is where we're at right now.
The socks I'm working on are red heels and toes and a tan body. At first I was annoyed, because the tan was much darker in real life than online, but now I kind of like it. It's kind of an older, ancient looking tan.
I'm also working on a crochet afghan and the beekeeper quilt. Little by little, they grow.
LG had her doctor's appointment and rabies shot, and once again had a reaction to it. The reaction was milder, but still there. Sigh. Also, she is a little bit overweight - eek! I guess it's the huge amounts of treats I keep feeding her. Just a few ounces, but we'll have to work on it.
Work is work - that's all I can say for now. It also seems like everyone else is leaving but me...maybe I'll get a raise because no one will be left :)
I've been trying to work on my spinning, particularly spinning textured yarns. I'm going through Spin Art and trying to work on one of each of the yarns per chapter. I got the book for beehive yarns and tried those first. Eep. I was able to make some beehives, but I didn't anchor them correctly, so they kind of slid around the yarn and un-beehived themselves. Yesterday I decided to start over and did the racing stripe yarn. That worked out much better, and it's soaking now. I really want to make the deeply textured, lumpy bumpy stuff, but I need to walk before I can run.
