I don't think I've shown this yarn here before, but I've shown it on FatCatKnits ravelry group, I think. Anyway, this is FatCatKnits variegated BFL - Tapestry:
I made this navajo plied yarn with it:
and once more:
It's 4oz, navajo plied, ~ 267yds. I'm going to add it to my finished Humbug box, where I am collection my variegated dyed, and finished handspun yarn, until I know what I'll want to make with it.
On Wednesday, my DD Hannah came home with a friend for a swim, and sun bathing. This friend scared Denny, who so far has only had friendly encounters with strangers. It rattled him. She ran after him, arms stretched out. At first he stood his ground, and barked at her, but since she persisted, he thought he'd better run. For the rest of the afternoon, both hid either under my desk, or when we were outside, they ran up the hill beside the house, and watched us from behind the corner, just their heads popping out.
By the time they left, Denny let her scratch his belly though. He must have realized, that she's not THAT scary after all.
Happy had an encounter with the painter, and it puzzles me even more now, that he's afraid of Hannah, but is brave enough to go up to a stranger, smelling of paint, to sniff his outstreched hand. I was playing Frisbee with him, while Denny was off on a car ride with DS David, when suddenly the balcony door opened, and the painter came downstairs into the backyard. I wondered what he wanted, but learned that soon enough. He just thought Happy was such a beautiful dog, that he had to meet him.
He crouched down, and held out his hand, while calling Happy. The scardy cat just woofed with his deepest voice, a few times, and since the guy didn't go away, he finally went to him, and sniffed his hand. After that everybody was happy, and returned to what we were doing. :o)
The upstairs bedrooms are painted, and look wonderful. I think they will finish painting today, and I can't wait to see some color on the walls!
I still haven't cast on for something new. I can't decide. So I've spun some more, which is fun anyway, but in the evenings, I don't like to have idle hands. There must be a decision soon!
