I had such big plans for the last summer months. I was going to spend more time spinning and knitting. I was going to learn how to can my plethora of CSA veggies, read more and run farther. Instead, I spun just about nothing, knitted very little and am still afraid of canning. I haven't really read anything extracurricularly and have been merely maintaining my running distance.
Instead my time was consumed by a disappointing summer class and this handsome fella:
He's not mine; he belongs to James' mom and we're the official acting puppy-parents while she's away. He takes up much more of my time than I expected, but it's worth it. I mean, look at that face! (And, if you're so inclined and into dogs, check out this adorable video James put together with footage we took a couple weeks ago)
In my knitting world, nothing much is happening. I feel like I've been knitting my Matsuri forever, so I starting a sanity-saving Meritursas beret. I'm doing it in Canopy Worsted which, like all Fibre Company yarns I've been working with recently, does not disappoint. It's like knitting with a butter/silk blend. Delicious.
So, there's my afternoon in summation. I'll be sitting at my desk working on my hat, watching old episodes of Buffy and drinking a beer. I spent the afternoon dyeing up some laceweight BFL/Silk which is busy drying up in the hot second floor of the house, so I'll be back soon to show off my handiwork!
