What I did on my day off
I managed to get to the laundry early enough that I could hang it on the line to dry -- something I haven't done as often as I'd have liked this year. Plenty of people do it year 'round, even in this parts (hello, brother-in-law), but not me.
I did a little cleaning (dusting!), went out to lunch with my mum, visited my friend Nancy at the antique mall, made dinner, and went to book club!
Oh, and I washed and pinned out pieces of a sweater to block! I've been working on the Montana Tunic from Shear Spirit: Ten Fiber Farms, Twenty Patterns, and Miles of Yarn, using the "Grandma's Blessing" sportweight yarn from Briar Rose Fibers. That's not what I was intending to make when I bought the yarn at this years Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival, of course, but it's been on the radar for a long time and it all just worked out. There's a crapload of ribbing yet to be done next... not my favorite thing to do, but I do like the garment and can envision wearing it a lot, so I'll persevere.
I think I've finally worked out the seaming of Parcheesi -- my head was playin' games with me on that one. Not a portable project, though, so believe I'll be starting a more portable pair of Dimorphous Mittens tonight -- another pattern that's been on the radar for a while -- while watching my daughter and the Half-Price Books team compete in this year's Spelling Bee!
