There has been some dyeing happening here. I've put some up for sale at my Etsy store - Celia's Basket
. Go take a peak. There's more to come. I have another few skeins of merino slubby yarn than I have not listed yet. The slubby yarns are beautifully soft. I am actually tempted to keep a few skeins for myself so I can turn them into scarves. Each skein would be enough for a scarf. Two will make a long scarf .
Not much knitting has been happening here, just some crochet. The baby blanket is growing - slooooooooowly. I am up to 20 inches in diameter and I am so tired of it. No, you don't understand. I mean I am REALLY tired of it - like it is going to be a permanent UFO kind of tired.. I'll push on, though. I only need to get up to about 40 inches (only??). The blanket also stinks. I suspect it is the oil on the yarn. It's in a cone, so it was probably oiled. It smells chemical-y and icky, and that's not only to my very pregnant nose. Even Chris agrees. It stinks. I do hope that the smell will wash out, but I can't wash the blanket till I am done, so I will just have to keep working on it and hope for the best.
Have you had a look at the Scarf Exchange blog
lately? There are so many pretty scarves being made. Every time I see a new pretty scarf, I wonder whether that's mine. It's a secret exchange, you see.. and I don't know who is knitting my scarf.
Tonight I will go for my first pre-natal aqua class. I am not sure how much excercise it's going to be - all that bobbing up and down in a pool. I'll go anyway, just to get out of the house. I'm not expecting much, so I guess it will be hard to be disappointed. Excercise and my name should never be mentioned in the same sentence!
