This year's guild display is to be items made from those small skeins. Can be anything and can include other yarn. I spun my original two ounces a little soft and chunky so there really wasn't much yardage to work with. Amy had some roving left so I grabbed another bag of the color I had last year (which turned out to be slightly different shades from the first roving but that's OK, it's all pretty) and even a bit more of a second colorway from a friend who didn't need all hers.
I had settled on a pattern some time ago and printed it out before I went to Kentucky to visit The Crazy Sheeplady. I knew I'd need help making sure I understood what was written, and during the Summer Swap gathering an excellent knitter helped me figure it out. (Thanks, kbdoolin!)
I'm liking it so much I want to go sit in random waiting rooms so I can knit and have people notice it! ;-)
I love that there's no set stopping point - when you're out of yarn, you're done!
I've listened to a few audio books lately while driving and working. I really liked two of them although they are world's apart in plot and style. Across Five Aprils has apparently been around as long as I have ( ! ) but I hadn't stumbled over it. I'm pleased to think there are tons of good 'old' books out there waiting for me to discover them. The other one is much newer - Station Eleven - and is quite popular judging by the people in line ahead of me waiting to download it from the library so in this one tiny event I'm current with pop culture.
