The doldrums?

Is it possible for the doldrums to be a human emotional state? Because if so, I am totally there. This sums up my feelings for the entire day: Bleh.

Knitting: Kind of taking a hiatus. Just not floating my boat at the moment.

Crocheting: Has taken over the spot at the top of my bag, maybe because I can acutally finish crocheted projects. In the past two weeks I've completed a baseball jersey looking shirt for Brent nephew-monkey out of Cotton Ease (the new stuff is MUCH nicer than the old), and I'm almost done with a little pointy pointless thing from 2 balls of Berroco Comfort. Seriously nice stuff, and the price tag on the DK weight is a breath of fresh air. I'll post a photo when it's done. Probably tomorrow.

Spinning: I (finally) finished spinning the Red Stone Yarns Burnished sample chunk into a cobweb/laceweight single. I'm plying it with my insane-o plying silk, and in the majority of what I've plied so far the Burnished is the SAME thickness as the plying silk. I honestly didn't expect that. The plying is slow going, though, 'cause hyper-fine singles mean massive yardage for 1/3 ounce or however much it is. All other spinning is creeping along, even the Insubordiknits I have set aside for Lenny and I thought would keep me going because it's so pretty.

Stitch markers: They're there. What else can I say? I'm still slacking on getting them all photographed and uploaded, though I DID manage to get a few added to the Etsy store.


I'll leave you with one last photo. Mary, I think this is proof that your housewarming gift for Crackie is a hit. :)
