Today was one of those days when we really remembered why we put in the pool. The temperature was in the 100's (Fahrenheit). On days like today there really are only one thing to do - jump in the pool!
Despite the hot temperature I got a few other things done as well. I spent a couple of ten minute periods "pretend spinning" on the beautiful Ashford spinning wheel that Allison so graciously has lent me while her house is being remodeled - Thank you Allison! I say pretend spinning because I don't actually have any roving to spin yet, so I'm "pretend spinning" a four yard piece of scrap yarn over and over again. I do this to try and get the feel for the wheel and maybe when the roving I have ordered come sometime next week, I'll be ready to make some real knots!
I also relaxed with some knitting today (poolside while Conrad was playing in the water). I worked on the 2nd sock in an improvised pattern by me for me. I should be able to complete it sometime next week.
I'm a married woman with three children and one dog. We live in the lovely Santa Cruz Mountains in California. My biggest hobby is knitting and lately spinning, but I also enjoy other types of crafts and sewing. I like to scuba dive, both here in Monterey Bay and in more tropical locations.
