I should be working on the Ginkgo Crescent shawlette.
I have the pattern.
I have the needles.
I have the yarn.
Monday morning I pulled out the yarn to wind it and when I removed the scrap pieces of yarn holding the skein in order I found two bugs! They were larvae of some sort and after a post on ravelry suggested that I freeze my yarn for three days, let it sit for one and then let it freeze for another three.
So instead of working on the shawl I found various other things to do.
I wound the yarn I dyed earlier this week with yellow onion skins and an iron after-mordant.
(The lighter yellow is without a mordant.)
I got caught up on recording temperatures for The Weather Scarf.
I tried to turn a heel on the Bahamas socks and ended up with an extra needle with ten stitches on it when I picked them up after finishing the sole flap.
Seriously, who does that?
Upon closer inspection I realized that, not only do I have no idea where those extra stitches came from or how to eliminate them, they are too mall in various places, the heel being one. So, I frogged it and started over, making a medium instead of a small.
I bought the hair ties I needed for Flower Power (AKA Tiny Tether) and a set of pacifiers.
Apparently you can only buy a 72 pack of these suckers at Wal-Mart and apparently they make different sized pacifiers for different ages. I bought some for age 16 months. I’m going to go back and get some smaller ones I think.
I did a lot of things other than the thing I wanted to do but I still got a lot done.
