I almost made my spinning goal for this week.
Was feeling pretty good about it, too.
So good, in fact, that I was going to cast on and swatch for the Classic Oak Cardigan while we were out to coffee.
I even took a picture of the yarn, waiting patiently by our coffees.
Then I went and consulted the pattern.
And a couldn’t believe what I saw.
That’s what it’s gonna take to make a 46″ Classic Oak Cardigan.
And you’re thinking- yeah, than sounds about right. Light worsted-weight, size 7 needles. Whats the big deal?
The deal is, somehow my mind has been locked in on 1500 yards.
I’ve been thinking that I’m so close to being all spun up for this one.
But I’m only 2/3 there.
For reference, 2200 meters=
2405 yards 10.9 furlongs 437 rods .455 leagues 1203 fathoms 4811 cubits 1292 smoots 1038 kens or (my personal favorite) 22000000000000 angstroms.
But any way you say it, its a lot of yarn.
On a more positive note- here is my Sadie Sunshine girl
relaxing amongst the buttercups. Doesn’t she look fabulous?
The sweet pup has lost almost 30 pounds since last April.
I think she likes being a farm girl.
