But, it's been hot, and we've been doing a lot of this.
Napping under the fan
I've even been swimming. The lake temperature quickly rose to 88-degrees and I find that acceptable for swimming. Well, I don't really do what you could call swimming anymore, but I do a lot of moving around in the water. It's great that my body has always wanted to float to the top.
Seems like in June I was talking about some roving that I had that was a mix of corriedale and alpaca. Cary and I are doing a spin in/knit in. I think I was supposed to wait for her before I started on the knit in part of the deal. Well, I thought I should make a gauge swatch and before I knew it I had a sock. OPSS!

I spun up some of my mystery fiber last week. I didn't overprocess this fiber so the finished yarn is rather rustic. I plan to make the lined beanie. And maybe some gloves too. I have lots more fleece from this batch, but next time will run it through the carder [at least] once more. I have about 8 3/4 oz which I think is only around 300 yards. I keep doing the math again and again, but can't get more yardage::-(

There is more I could talk about, like the CSA we joined, and more I won't talk about, like what is going on at the Board here in our community. BUT, it's time to get moving along.
