A Yarny Fall Day

Hey Everyone!

I have definitely been enjoying my day off.

I have been working on my current sock throughout the day.

While it didn’t get super warm today, the sun was out today and made it feel warmer today than it was. So I decided to was the socks I had finished up, and put them on the drying rack.

The hank of yarn I had ordered from Deep Dyed Yarns, which had been recommended to me by a reader, arrived today. So I got it wound up.

I definitely love the colors here, and I am excited to knit these up into socks. This colorway was my favorite of the ones available.

After working 5 days in a row last week, and only having two nights / one full day off, it is nice to be back to my normal schedule. It has certainly been nice to be able to knit the past couple of days as well. I have certainly missed it.

Making Hats

Hey Everyone,

Beings that today is the halfway mark through the month of April, I figured it was time to write an update on the 30 day 30 hats challenge I had started on April 1st. I have only made nine hats so far this month. While I am mildly disappointed in myself, I remind myself that keeping up the relationships I have with my friends is also important to me. While there are children who are in need of the hats that I am knitting, my friends are in my world, and I don’t want forget about them as they are more of a priority.

Last week I did a little digging in the basket of yarn that I have set aside for hats, and found some yarn I had forgotten about having stuck in the basket, so I pulled it out. I am now working through that yarn because it caught my eye and there is plenty of it to make several hats from each skein of yarn.
