This is the same yarn I used for the scarf I gave to Alexia on Christmas Eve. If you go back two posts you will see how stripey it was and also how wonky it made the selvedges. I like the stripes to be horizontal, as in this scarf, not Lu's. I wasn't pleased with it then but I'm thrilled with the yarn now.
Spin Art Jacey Bogg's book on spinning art yarns which arrived when I was in the hospital. I haven't even opened it but I'm started to get excited about possibilities. It's time to check out the book.
I walked the dogs about midday today, and no, we didn't get another dog. Our neighbor's puppy has taken to tagging along. It warmed up today and was really pleasant because a storm is supposed to come in tonight. That would be fantastic since we've just had the driest water year on record and two ski resorts have closed. The remaining are making their own snow. Skier's have a bumper sticker - Pray for Snow!. Given the wildfire risk, that's exactly what I'm doing!
