Things are still blissfully boring round here. Work is very busy (thank you!), so evenings are spent doing non-thinking activities.
I have picked up my crochet hook again in an attempt to finish off a blanket project I started more years ago than I care to admit.
I've also been spinning, partly to reduce the quantity of fibre bulging out of storage boxes, but also because there are times when 100g of hand dyed fluff provides just the right amount of challenge. I theoretically have a fleece project I'm working on, hoping to spin it up for a jumper, but the first skein was very wrong in terms of thickness, so the whole project went in to time out. I pulled out the pretty braids just to remind myself that I do know what I'm doing, and can make yarn!

Spun to a weight that matches a couple of skeins I've already spun. Aiming for a rough Sport/DK weight makes for comfortable spinning, and tends to give me options for the finished skeins.
There are so many great striped patterns out there now that allow you to combine skeins of yarn. It's also a thickness that makes a nice woven fabric if I choose to go down that route.
Now if you'll excuse me, reducing my stash of dyed braids appears to have resulted in my buying undyed fibre to use with it to make Northmavine Hoody... I'd best get spinning!
