A long weekend...

leading into a week of vacation is awesome.

I've been busy spinning and knitting this past week. I knit a sock and plied two skeins of yarn. The first skein was for a friend and has moved on to its new home...


This single was out of control! had to soak then wind onto the yarn stretcher...so it would dry into the 326 yds that it was supposed to be.



It had been on the bobbin for longer than I care to admit.

I'm happy to say that LittleDog survived the Explosives Holiday, although it was a bit dicey on Thursday night. We ended up having to hide in the corner of the bedroom with the TV as loud as we could stand. Two doses of anti-anxiety meds didn't have the intended effect. I guess the best thing I can say about the night is that he didn't die from a seizure or a heart attack...I truly hate the Explosives holiday.
Hope you all have a great week. Thanks for coming. See you again soon.

I love the sock (and all hand knit socks), and the yarn is really very pretty!

I spent July Fourth evening cuddling my doggie and reassuring her that it was okay, the world wasn't ending. even one of the cats hid. It gets worse every year, and most of the loud explosives aren't even legal in Baltimore County. I suspect people go to another state for them .... anyway, we're good till New Year's.
