Today I started cleaning up my studio and then went out to lunch and Urban Sketching. I ended up drawing one of our sketchers:
|The blue sky is just wishful thinking. It was quite gray.|
This is good knitting weather. I finished my first Hitchhiker, and I love it. It only has about 39 teeth (it's supposed to have 41), but it is long enough right off the needles. After blocking, it should be a decent length.
I like the way the gradient works out when it's around my neck. I think it came out well enough to be a gift.
It was such a fun and relaxing knit, that I just had to do a stash dive and start a second one.
I have no recollection of where I got this skein of yarn. It's going to be an adventure. It's a magic ball with 15 colors of sock yarn tied together with square knots and wound into a cake. I haven't come to a knot yet, but I'm hoping that I can just leave the knots in place and have a rustic sort of shawl. Strangely, there is no company name or brand. All I know is that there are 525 yarns of Merino superwash sock yarn.
For dinner tonight I made a delicious red lentil dish from the Oh She Glows Every Day Cookbook. The dish called for homemade mango chutney, but I cheated and bought some. I'm not vegan, but I do make a lot of Oh She Glows recipes. They are healthy and reliably good.
I noticed that the photo of my most recent quilt in my last post was fuzzy, so I just had to go on record with a better photo:
How was your weekend?
