I used my yarn swift and ball winder to wind about half the yarn for the hitchhiker. Either the ball winder or I had an off day, we haven't decided yet who's to blame -- and what should have taken about five minutes took an hour. What a tangled mess. I finally gave up and just wound the second ball by hand. The swift fits on this outside table better than any table in the house so that helped make things more pleasant, being in that little patch of shade right by the garden, listening to the blue jays honk and holler all the while.
The hitchhiker calls for size 3mm (US2) needles. It's going to take a while and I'm glad -- slow knitting, you know.
One of the indigo vats from last week still had pigment so I dipped a pair of faded blue jeans the other day and again today, they look so great now. This is the life.
I've been interchanging the words live and love to see what comes up. Love and learn. Love for today. Love your life. Live it.
Thanks for visiting and happy weekending. Live.
