Weekend Update

It has been awhile since I did a weekend update. Saturday kicked off with the usual trip to the coffee shop.  I decided since it wasn’t sub-zero out to take the wheel. I haven’t spun much in the last month if at all and I just felt like. Sometimes ya just gotta roll with it.

On the wheel is 40z of Polwarth fiber. I’m not enjoying it really. I don’t know if it is the muted colors or the fiber itself. It’s rather sticky and I’m not finding it to slide as smoothly as other fibers I have worked with. It could also be going from slippery alpaca to polwarth. I’ll revisit my opinion as I get farther into the fiber.

Saturday morning spinning!

We grilled up one of my favorite foods this weekend along with some burgers. Nothing beats grilled pineapples.

I did spend quite a bit of time watching the Olympics finish up this weekend. I felt it was a good time to cast on a semi-surprise project. It’s a Brickless by Martina Behm. Yarn is a surprise. Loving how it is is knitting up! Very potato chip like.

I haven’t posted about this on the blog yet, but my husband and I (and a few others on Instagram) have taken up doing this 30 Day Ab Challenge. I found the little graphic on Pinterest a few weeks ago. We’ve done very good doing the specified workout each morning. We skipped Saturday morning, but jumped right back in Sunday. I can definitely feel my abs are getting stronger.

Along with the Brickless, another new project hit the needles. I’ve been contemplating doing a different scrap blanket than the one I was doing. Part of me says it is silly to change part way in, but the other just wasn’t working for me. I am going to do some log cabin squares and then seam them together. Here is a shot of the first one (well, part of the first one!)

All of this made for a good weekend. There was a great deal of procrastination in the homework area, and I’m gonna pay for that this week. Nothing beats watching the Olympics, and playing games with friends though.

Until next time…

  1. I’m doing that challenge too! However, it’s on pause as I’m trying to kick this head cold. And I can only do a minute plank.
