Monday...Catch up.

Hi, how is everyone! I've been doing well. Sorry I just left you with the sad post and then nothing. I've had a busy weekend. I've been obsessed with gift knitting and spinning for these gifts. I made a list last week and now I just want to knit it all. In the past four days, I've spun up 2 different 4 oz rovings and plyed them!

Here they are:

The red, white, and specks of black is my own hand dyed merino. The purple/brown is BFL from yummyyarn.etsy.com. I love her rovings.

So, this Saturday, I spent it mainly running around like a mad woman. I went to my spinning meet-up and had tons of fun. Then helped them move the library and found some great books to check out! Then hung out with SK for a little bit and headed out to dinner with some college friends for my friend Darci's birthday! It was a fun night!

Sunday, I cleaned the floors and the dogs. SK had cleaned the rest on Saturday. Then we headed to the beach. Isn't he cute driving, while I of course knit?

When we got there, SK headed out to wade fish and I set myself up on the beach and got settled to catch some sun on my back, since last time I burnt my front from not flipping because I was knitting. :) Well, then this pack of people, like four families and their kids showed up and I got a crab dropped on me and my blanket stepped on. I wasn't happy. After they left I was able to relax and get back to my knitting for a bit. Here's what I was able to get done. :) I also got a lot of podcasts listened to. :)

Well, today was a good Monday. One of the better ones I've had. I'm now waiting for SK to cook dinner and am heading to spin up some black merino to make my sister a hat. I decided that the Felicia colorway was a bit much even though I LOVE it. So, I'm going to spin up some black and use it to knit a hat with the funky color. :) I think she'll like it better.

Well..hope everyone is having a good week!
