Arielle has been in time out this week, not for anything that's gone wrong with it, but because I haven't had the best week, and I really couldn't face a fingering weight sweater.
Instead, I've been knitting mindless things, and have made another two preemie outfits.
I really like this one, the colourway is called "Easter Basket," and I think it's really cute. I was a bit worried that all the different colours would overwhelm a preemie, but I think that there must be parents out there that would love the dress their little on in these bright, happy colours.
This brings my total to donate to 9 cardigans, 5 hats and 2 bonnets, and I will be dropping them off at my hospital's NICU early next week.
I am enjoying the long weekend, it's nice to know that I don't have to go into the hospital tomorrow, and I decided to start a new project that makes me happy, just because. I was gifted a Juno Fibre Arts Angora/Tussah braid, which was slightly felted, but was in gorgeous shades of blue and green.
It takes a fair bit of pre-drafting to spin it, but oh my god it is gorgeous. It's buttery soft and smooth, and I just want to roll around in it, and hug it and squish it! I'm in love, and I managed to spin an entire single yesterday, because I just didn't want to stop! I bet that I will have some finished yarn by the end of this weekend, and I will need to find the perfect project for it. Here's to hoping I don't ruin it.
