singles and shawl progress.

Bobbin 1 of the Hello Yarn romney in Alpine.

Bobbin 2, first in progress, because I thought I was going to stop, and then, in the second picture, finished. This stuff spins itself. I may cheat a little bit and ply later tonight instead of letting the singles rest a full day, We’ll see.

The wedding is next Saturday, a week from today. I decided on two leaf pattern repeats (I think the last time I blogged about this, I was thinking about doing three), and this morning I began the edging. I’m 8 rows into 34, and I absolutely love how this is turning out. If I work steadily on this over the next few days,  I won’t have to stay up late and risk making stupid, bleary-eyed mistakes. My goal is to block this on Wednesday night, so that it has ample time to dry before I deliver it to the bride on Friday.

While I was working on the romney and the shawl, Boh was standing guard at the window:

He really is a surprisingly long dog — I marvel at his length whenever I find him at the window like this, paws up on the radiator.

Apparently surveying the backyard is pretty exhausting work. (There is loud snoring drifting towards my desk from the bedroom.) May your Saturday be as productive and restful as Boh’s!

  1. So pretty! The shawl is looking great, too. I’m glad to see Boh is dedicated to protecting your knit goods.

  2. So the lace is working out! Really pretty color.
    Isn’t Romney the most amazing to spin?! Especially Romney from Adrian. Her fibers are superb.
