It was an absolutely lovely morning, sunny and 60 degrees. I spent about an hour here, just being one with the universe, or whatever. It's the first time this year I've been able to spin here, so I chose this environment over my S.A.D light. The forecast is for possible snow tonight and a low of 17 degrees in the morning. I will be one with my grow light tomorrow morning for sure.
Mim and I took a drive up to the Doyle post office to check on the best way to ship hat kits. I told her to meet me at the mailboxes at 1:00. The P.O. is closed from 12:30-1:30 - oops - and so we waited. Mim noticed the rail across the roof to prevent sheets of snow from bombing patrons. Interesting.
We thought it would be nice to drive home on a loop of the old highway that threads its way through old established ranches. We were the only car on the road so I stopped to snag this picture of Long Valley. It is a very long valley and especially pretty this time of year. I love our clouds. They are such an adornment
I came home, inspired to get hat kits finished and uploaded to Etsy. I have a bin for my Shetland skeins and so sorted through and started building some completed kits. I hadn't realized it, but some of these skeins are several years old. All three of these are from Ollie - that's now much he has faded in the last three years.
I have completed four kits so far. I have more yarn, but I had no idea how many steps and how much time it would take to make just one hat kit. I thought I'd just pop them up on Etsy. What was I smoking??
