Last weekend Blake and I took a little trip. We first visited my oldest daughter. I took Blake, Kristin and her roommates out to lunch. After that brief visit, we continued on the road to visit my mom. A few of my siblings and nieces and nephews come by and we had a nice dinner together. While there I picked up a bag of wool from another sister. I can't wait to spin this.
Speaking of homespun, I started swatching the BFL that I spun a few months ago. I am so happy with how it is working up. It is just as soft and yummy as the roving was. I want to make the Buttonbox vest out of it. My gauge is a bit bigger than what the pattern calls for, so I will try to convert it.
I have time for a new project now that Kristin's throw is finished. I have to weave in the ends. That won't take long. I'll do that later today while I'm waiting for a cake to bake. This will be delivered to her later tonight along with her birthday cake.
A blanket for Trisha has been started. Trisha is a senior this year. Since she'll be heading off to college next year, I want to give her a throw to use in her dorm. This is the start of the first square. It will end up something like this.
