Tired days equal more spinning it seems.

Yesterday I concentrated on not falling asleep to assure that I would get a good nights sleep and flip over to regular days after working a night shift. To do so I fell back on knitting on my replacement scarf (more to come later) and spinning.
I got a second single of my special order done. Four more to go.
I still think I'm going to have a lovely dk weight 3-ply when I'm all done. And I'm pretty sure I will have a fairly large amount of yardage. But hey, having extra is better than not enough.

At the end of the day as I wrapped up the single I decided to take a bit of a break from orange. I have plenty of time to wrap up this project. In fact if it turns out as well as I hope I think I'm going to enter it in the state fair this year. I always say I'm going to but never really get around to it but I think it's time to suck it up. But first I have plenty more spinning and a lot of knitting.

But, back to the break from orange, I jumped into "Crossing to Safety" which is this months fiber of the month club installment. It makes me think of springs fresh blossoms of crocus, iris, and muscari poking out of the mulch of last years leaves. It's beautiful so far. I broke it all up last night and began spinning. After this morning's walk I continued.

Shiela started some new drugs for her arthritis this week. Still not sure how I feel about it. We're just at that point where I balance her comfort with making sure I don't keep her around for my own peace of mind. She seems awful spunky today so fingers crossed.

Well, I better clean up, shave and all that and head to work. I'm working a double today so I better make sure I'm awake and with it.
