Keeping Busy

Since today is Sunday, it is often a crafting, quiet day for me. Made more so today by the fact that Daniel is really, truly gone from Washington state for the next 18+ months. I already can't stand it, but I told him that the sooner he leaves, the sooner he gets back home.

I got home from buying groceries, and I decided to update on what has been going on.

The sleeve for my Wisteria sweater is coming along nicely. I started the cabling rows already. I think I have like 36 or so left to finish this sleeve... it goes quickly, too, since there are only three repeats per round!

I washed the Gotland fleece again. It was a pain dealing with something that was still so greasy, plus the fleece had absorbed some of the horrible deck coating odor that had permeated the house last week. ( I love that I got a note on my door telling me that the odor was "not harmful". Bull-Honkey!!!)

And, to sweeten the pot, I got the most wonderful care package from Kim! A fun dyed-fiber sampler, and lots of fun merino-blend rovings (I think there is a seacell blend as well as a cashmere blend in there!) and some raw merino and Icelandic fibers!

And now I am going to attend to my soup. I just took some boiled chicken thighs out of the pot to cool, and I am going to chop up some veggies - celery, carrots, onion, garlic, lemongrass, baby bok choi, jalapeno, rutabaga!!! :)
