Eclipse

Did you see it?

Lunar Eclipse

DQ and I were a few minutes late but we did get to see the eclipse and it was very cool. Cold too - because the weather here has changed drastically since Monday when we dined al fresco in our shirtsleeves. Yesterday it snowed here. It wasn't a lot but still, we went from seventy to snow in 2 days. Crazy weather!

I was spinning again and I'm gratified that my second bobbin is much more even than the first. Yay! I was also working on socks but not the Dragon socks because they are finished. I just need to get good pictures to post.

Since I finished a pair of socks, I started another. It's actually a reworking of one of the patterns submitted for Sock Madness 2. I worked one sock as written and it was just off. The numbers worked out just fine but it was a little snug around the ankle and when it was on my foot it looked off. If it was way off it might have been better for me because as is - it's become a little bit of an obsession trying to get it to work. Ugh! The weird thing is that suddenly, as I ponder remedies for this sock, I've got patterns swirling in my head for socks I'd love to create. All of the what ifs and wouldn't it be cools are driving me nuts because I haven't a clue how to get them on paper.

You got a great shot of the moon! I'm jealous that you're getting all that fiber stuff done ;-)

SM2 has gotten my brain moving too, all the patterns that I would have never had time to work on in the fall are making me crazy. So I'm sitting here swatching and blogreading.

I saw it but I was too lazy - and it was too cold - to actually take photos. I'm glad you did.

Lovely photo. It was solid overcast here.
