I'm heading out the door to go and celebrate the USA independence with a bunch of South Africans (us immigrants!) but before I do, here's an update.
A little further on the Golden Wheat cardigan…
And I found some nice, plain buttons at my LYS.
Tour De Fleece continues apace.
Thomas's yak-merino is done and it's semi-worsted and should end up being a worsted/aran weight.
I've started on Cynthia and Leah's merino.
I've stripped it down to about 6 pieces and it's spinning up nicely. I want the colours to be very mottled.
So there you go. Lots of spinning and knitting.
I took some time off to go out to dinner with a friend last night and to watch the epic Prometheus. I like the director, Ridley Scott, but I just couldn't shake the feeling that Promethius was a composite of all the Science Fiction movies of the last few decades, there was Kubrick and Star Trek and Stargate and even Alien. Still, the special effects were fabulous and I thought Charlize Theron was excellent. All is forgiven for Aeon Flux…
ETA - One gobbledygook explanation corrected and one autocorrect that was missed. I am, as always, humbled and saddened by my incorrect spelling...
