This might be Eye Candy Friday.... but it's a Gray Day everywhere I look.
Up. And Down.
Despite the gray weather, this is a good happy day.
First, it's Friday. Jeff doesn't work late on Fridays. We all look forward to the evenings when every chair is filled at the dinner table. Well, Benny will be gone to a far away basketball game (we've only been making it to home games since the babies have a hard time sitting through an event like that). But otherwise we'll all be home for dinner.
I took the babies to the Y this morning and got some exercise. WOW it makes me feel great when I get to do that. But again... life is sometimes dictated by the babies, it seems. I've been trying not to take them out twice in a day so that they can get in a good nap - so going to the Y takes a back seat to higher priority outings like doctor appointments or meeting Daddy in Wichita for lunch.
Can I tell you how happy it makes me to see my Bloglines under 200?! VERY happy. At one point we were over 2000. Two. Thousand. I never did click on "mark all read" because I can't bear to think I might miss something important. It has taken a few week to get it under 200 which I find VERY bearable.
Despite the gray of the day, I am surrounded by lovely things that bring me happiness.
I have gotten a custom order for two skeins of worsted weight yarn in the pink colorway I dyed for the Besotted scarf I knit. If anyone else out there in the world might like two skeins of squishy soft worsted weight wool in this colorway, send me an email or leave a comment! I'll be happy to enable anybody wanting to knit with this pretty colorway. Of course I can do other colors too. Let me know if you have a special request. My scarf was 48" long but 200g of worsted will make an even longer scarf or give you some leftover yarn to make a pair of Fetching mitts to match!
This variegated colorway is a blend of reds, pinks, rose and wine. The base yarn is Knitpicks Bare and the dyes I used are RIT dyes. This red dye did NOT rub off on my hands when I knit with it, though it did bleed into the water when I washed my scarf (typical red behavior).
Everybody have a wonderful weekend! Love your gray days. Squish your knits. Hug and kiss your family. Pet some yarn. Exercise if you can! Smile a lot. :)
