Moose has been in the hospital over a week. Home now and doing better slowly but facing surgery down the road. So with being there for hours a day, I didn't get much done on the fiber front. Missed group, missed yoga. Too bad I don't have the Pocket Wheel yet. So here's a skein from the past few days.

SW Merino from Fatcatknits. 410 yds, 4 oz 2ply. There was a lovely pastel green in the singles that didn't survive the plying, orange rules.

8 oz Falkland by FCK purchased at Cloverhill. Mixed in 2 oz similar color merino and 2 oz purply BFL. 4 oz leftovers gone. 800 yards 2 ply light, 450 yards dark. Looks like enough for Icarus although I am NOT announcing a WIP.
Assembled the skeiner myself, leaving out something called a bushing. Wobbles but works, Moose will fix it "someday". Makes a shorter skein than the niddy but much less rough on the shoulders.
Gave the ugly hat to Bob, a co-worker who needs a thick hat due to lack of hair. He's always willing to look at the latest yarn.
