WIPs - one day early

OK, so I take the day off because we had scheduled some work on the house and now it seems like the person may not be coming. To say I'm upset is an understatement. Maybe if I share some pictures of my accomplishments of last week, it may relax me a bit.

Loksins finished on the left. And worn yesterday - great socks and great yarn! These are knit from Dream in Color Smooshy in Beach Fog. Monkeys started on the right in Socks that Rock Dragon Dance. I just love this pattern! And the colors are perfect for PSIII.

Now for some spinning:

I finally plied the Strawberry Fields as chained singles trying to somewhat keep the same colors together. I'm pretty pleased with the results - about 315 yards of a 3-ply. I also played around trying to get a heavier weight with some BFL (also from Amy).

And lastly I tried to get some sort of thick and thin bulky. Not quite as successful although it is rather bulky.

Well, I just got a phone call from the chimney guy - he MAY be able to come this afternoon. Which means I have to stay home JUST IN CASE. I think I need to sit and knit or sew - something to make this day productive. Happy crafting!

I think you should just relax and enjoy a bonus day off.

Your spinning looks fabulous. The STR works out to be the BEST yarn for Monkey socks, eh?

Beauteous socks! I especially love the Dragon Dance Monkeys - they sorta look like a dragon dancing.

Hope the chimney guy came and set things to rights!

All your spinning looks wonderful! I would be mad too if I took a day off for nothing, but at least you have lots of fun things to work on since you're home anyway.
