But it’s so soft and comfy

The 93/7 merino/vicuna in a bunch of cones in cobweb weight: a joy to knit, a pain to have to spin together first. And it came in the color of earliest Fords only.

Black yarn, much less build-your-own black yarn was not at all what I was planning on working on today nor had I so much as thought of it but this morning those cones found me and bossed me around until I finally justified it on the grounds that a finished hank was an hour and a half’s project using three if not four limbs going at once: good gentle exercise for the recovering sick, right?

And thus 198 yards on the niddy-noddy. Now shrinking in the scouring, by design–better now than after the knitting.

Emphasis on the recovering. I’m certain your yarn has you best interests at heart. Happy you are feeling better!

I never envision yarn as a physical therapist. Interesting!

I pray you rested as well… No need to overdo on the prep work if you can only swoon for a few days rather than knit it.

Hope this project doesn’t tire you out! Black is always such an elegant color and I am sure the fact that it is so very soft will make this a worthwhile endeavor. ~chris
