I had a pretty fibery weekend! Yesterday I went to a beginner’s drop spindle class, and I am so glad I did. I did try using a spindle earlier this year and did manage to make a yarn-ish substance with a little help from YouTube and Bluprint. However, I kept feeling like I was doing… Continue reading Fiberific Weekend with Even More Archaeology
This evening I binge-watched all four episodes of Digging For Britain Season 1 on Amazon while working on my SIL’s Soft Pretzel socks. I only have 3 more rows of ribbing to do, and also now I know what’s up with British archaeology these days!

I spent most of my knitting time yesterday and today working on my SIL’s socks, but will post about that Monday. The other thing I have been making some progress on is my Perfect Blend shawl. It was my lunchtime/desk knitting for a while, but the rows got too long for that, so it came… Continue reading Perfect Blend Progress
