On the second skein now

So many people to knit for all the sudden. Two weeks. No idea re favorite colors. The result today was my spending way too much time dithering: this yarn? (Digging through bins.) No, this? Started to wind one–no, that won’t do, not soft enough. My friend Robin sympathized with the dilemma and I guess that’s all I really needed: some other knitter who knew well what it was like.

And with that I grabbed the odd skein of royal baby alpaca that I’d knit two congresswomen’s hats out of , declined to be bored with it, and started in on it, figuring red was good for a lot of people and supersoft was great for pretty much everybody.

No way will I be able to do all that I want to do in the time that I have, but I’m far happier doing what I can do.

And Michelle at last saw a raptor above the house today. My camera zoomed outside.

I was rummaging for some wool to make a lace scarf for the niece (since she has decided she wants one – you ALWAYS wait to be asked by a teenager and not assume). I figured out I have NO pink – used it for the wedding – or lavender. Have lots and lot of blue (my favorite color). Wanna swap? 🙂

Maybe my mojo isn’t lost; it just went to visit you without me??

Don’t worry; they know you love them.

I agree with Sherry, right now I am making Banoffee pie, takes 3 hours, for something so simple. Daughter requested it, it’s one of her favorites(mine too). Have a good day!
