I'm about done with the cuff of the second Mud Season sock. Then, it's smooth sailing. I started a diagonal garter stitch scarf with the Flowering Weeds hand spun. I'm not sure at all about the colors, but Tate said it looked good.
After work, I went to a local shopping center to run an errand or two. I got a call from Tate and she was about four stores down! So, we hung out and had an iced coffee and checked to see if there were any bargains at TJ Maxx. That was fun. She is on the cover of the soundtrack to Stay The Same, Never Change. It's the middle photo in the second row.
It's hard to get back into the routine of going to bed early again!

Corn, peppers, cucumbers, basil, green beans, chives, and broccoli. I had a couple ears of corn for dinner. They were so yummy they didn't need anything on them at all!
It's kind of blah as it is undyed. I'm thinking of dying this wool red. Because it is gray, it will turn out very muted when dyed, which I think would look good. The picture above is 2.8 ounces of wool. I have 3 pounds of this particular wool. Hoo boy. While Romney is easy to spin, it is not particularly soft, which is disappointing. I'll have to think of some type of outerwear for this wool.
So, most of Wednesday and Thursday was spent spinning. The rest of the Spring Flowers roving is spun. I did, however, work on the Mud Season socks:
Don't blow your fingers off setting off firecrackers!
