Totally Random Monday

1. The alpaca handspun has been locked in a smallish box with the mini dehumidifier I ordered from amazon for several days now. Very soon, maybe even tomorrow, I can either wrap the skeins into hanks or get started knitting with them. There is much to do, what with only 149 days until Christmas Day.

2. I finished the hand spun baby sweater:

It still needs a wash, but I think I’ll call it done for now anyway.

3. I thought I might’ve had enough leftover yarn to make a cute little hat to go with it but alas:

It wasn’t meant to be.

4. Lolly has, at long last, warmed up to Snowflake enough to share the big poofy cat bed (actually a bean bag chair) with him.

As you can see, he’s rather pleased with himself.

TdF Day 3

I was stuck at the car repair place for most of today boy did I wish I’d brought my wheel with me. I managed to make tons of progress anyway, ¬†finally finishing spinning up all the fiber I picked up from Island Alpacas when we visited Martha’s Vineyard a couple of years ago.

There sure was a lot of it. Not sure how I ended up with one thick single and one thin one, but the fiber wanted to be what it wanted to be.

Almost done!

Well, we made it! We got down here in time to move in on the 31st!

We really love our new place and we are just waiting on the movers to deliver the rest of our stuff. It was supposed to arrive today, but evidently the truck broke down in Georgia. They rescheduled us for tomorrow, which means today I need to clean up and get ready. Here’s my new kitchen:

And here is my new rug:

Also, meet Snowflake, our new cat. He comes to us from old friends who were leaving the Florida sun for Seattle rain and weren’t able to bring him with them. We got down here just in time to keep him out of a shelter, which turned out to be fortuitous for all of us. He is a very sweet boy and makes a wonderful addition to our family. He and Doozer are already buddies after just one short week. Lolly is taking a bit longer to accept all these changes, but she’ll come around eventually. She is able to tolerate being in the same room with him, so that’s something. So many new and exciting things! How has your week been?
