“I’m trying to get a Taylor family project done a day.”

“Ouch,” winced Michelle. “Break out the icepacks.”

It’s 11:26 pm and I’ll run the ends in tomorrow. I know, slacker…

Yarn: one strand Somoko superwash merino/kid mohair/nylon/silk from Fleece Artist, one strand, Maple Creek Farms superwash merino/bamboo/nylon, sock weights bought at Stitches East Fall ’08, and I never realized till today how well they would go together if I should need, say, a worsted-weight’s worth of superwash treated wool…

Alchemist of the yarns. 🙂

Lovely mix. I’m sure it’ll add sunshine and warmth to the recipient.

Oh. By the way: try to take care of yourself in the process. No sense getting tendinitis now… *wink*

They go together beautifully. I love the subtle variation in color- makes a simple hat quite lovely!

All I can do at this distance is cheer for you. Go, team, go!

Love the sunshine in that hat.

Lovely!! You take care of those knitting tools at the ends of your arms now…

What is this? Your own private sweat shop? You’re working both the swing and graveyard shifts? But that is beautiful yarn.

Beautiful! It looks like the variegation you find on raspberries some times (at least on our raspberries in the back yard)

Oh, the stress. Now I’m worried about the time you’ll lose tomorrow weaving in the ends from today’s project. How will you make rate tomorrow???

Of course, it’s all for a good cause, and with beautiful results.
