Sunday Musings: Another Lazy Day

“Do not let Sunday be taken from you. If your soul has no Sunday, it becomes an orphan.” – Albert Schweitzer

It’s going to be a lazy kind of day today and I’m rather grateful for it because rest is much needed, especially for my hubby.  As I sit here enjoying coffee this morning, I am thinking about spinning and possibly casting on another sweater, or maybe a cardigan.

Yesterday I finished spinning  (finally) my third bobbin of Corridale in Sleepy Hollow and today I think I will start plying.  I’ve decided to two ply and will be using a center pull ball method for my plying. I definitely need to get back into the habit spinning 15 minutes a day. Spinning over the last few days has given me such joy.


My plans for my finished handspun is to incorporate the finished skeins  into a sweater.  I have never done this so I’m excited about the possibilities. I plan to start going through my yarn stash to see what I might have that will compliment the colors of the Sleepy Hollow.

Planning …

I downloaded all my purchases of Interweave e-Magazines into my GoodReader this morning and will start looking for ideas for possible sweaters or cardigans to cast on, and will be going through all my Ravelry purchases too.  I am thinking about casting on the Felix Cardigan by Amy Christoffers (Ravelry link) using my stash on Lionbrand Yarn Woolease in a yummy fall color called Umber. I love fall colors and right now I seem to be gravitating to deep browns, rusts and burnt oranges.

Reading…
Not much else planned for today other than a bit of reading 📖.  I am enjoying Hallowe’en Party by Agatha Christie and should be finished with my book in the next few days. Right now I can’t quite decide what I want to read next, so it will be interesting to see where my mood takes me. Books I am considering next is The Little Shop of Found Things , The Map of Time and The Mystery of Mrs. Christie.


What are you doing today?

  1. Your Nuuk inspired me and I now own the pattern. Once my cardigan is finished it will be my next project. Your spun fiber is so pretty. It will make a gorgeous sweater.
