What is it about March? In particular, what is it about March 7th? In my own inner circle of friends and family members (which is a small group I can assure you) there are three people who were all born on March 7th.
Are there that many people born on March 7th? Is there a special mid-summer day of amore that I have not yet been married long enough to know about that is producing an odd number of March 7th babies? Is roughly 30% of the population really born on this day?
I am telling you now, if the zombie apocalypse ever begins -- it will happen on March 7th. Reader beware...
So I am busy like a beaver trying to get birthdays handled and celebrated -- so my two WIPs are on a short hold. I am about 75% done with the re-knit of last week's cowl and I am also 75% done with those grey and brown boot socks. I am working to finish both of those this week / weekend.
In the meantime, I have been spoiling myself on the spinning wheel. I have been working my way through Spinning Dyed Fibers with Felicia Lo on the Craftsy site. It is a wonderful class and she is a very fine teacher. I am learning a lot and practicing those techniques in my spare moments at home.
This is where today's WIP comes from:
This is me spinning a Falklands Combed Top hand dyed for me by the infinitely talented owner and operator of Spirit Trail Fiberworks.
I am really enjoying spinning. It is so unbelievably gratifying to make my very own yarn. My only regret is that I did not get started doing this sooner.
All things in their own time I guess... Apparently my right time was not until now.
I hope you all are having a wonderful Wednesday and that your WIPs are flying off the needles at rates unprecedented! I am sending you all good knitting vibes today!
Happy Knitting Everyone!
