The yarn in the picture of Megan under my machine...the bag of blues off to the left is from Headwater Wool, it's Gauja, I think about a fingering/DK range. Good value, 100% and 350m/395yd for $5. Supposively you can machine wash it on cold. Or felt it on hot. And it comes in several other thickness, so you can do interesting things. I hope to try dyeing this yarn after Christmas. The nicely wound ball connected to the knitting that Megan is holding is Plymouth Colourspun (bought in Georgetown). The colours in it range from yellow to red to green to blue. Very neat. The bag of green off to the right is the infamous Lion Brand "Alligator" that has been in the works since Aug 2004. Huey found that bag, recognized it and told me to get working again--put it in the half knit basket, he said!
A few minutes ago I heard a chorus of emergency vehicle sirens. We live near the ambulance station, so often hear that one, but there was more than just one. Now, a helicopter has gone over. It was white. The LifeFlight ones are mostly orange, a few are dark blue. White could be the CTV helicopter or a York/Toronto police helicopter. I'll have to watch the news tonight!
The thermometer outside says 10 C. Wow. A couple of really nice days! Was last weekend winter, and now we're back to spring? It's so hard to teach the kids about the seasons with weather like this!
