Here you see the beginning of the Silk Fountain colw from Luxury Yarn One-Skein Wonders: 101 Small Indulgences.

The pattern claims that it can be made from the quantity of yarn you see here. If so, I can make a whole wardrobe of these from lovely yarn I have around the house.

The yarn here is a Japanese wool I got from SuperBuzzy. The picture is intended to distract us all from the fact that I didn’t clean my kitchen and am currently half an hour late for the Habitat work day.

I was also late getting my grades in, worked out even minimally only on three days this week, have been eating who knows what, and only vaguely recall the last time I actually talked with family members. I haven’t paid for #1 son’s tuition yet, either.

This is not good. All I can say is that it’s been a long week.

Back now from my adventure at the Habitat house. It was fun. I did hit my thumb with a hammer, just like a cartoon, but I didn’t fall off the ladder. It probably took me ten times as long to do anything as it would have taken someone with skills, but they don’t care about this at Habitat. We had lunch and talked about spiders.

If you spend a few hours building a house, you then feel completely okay about lazing around afterwards. It’s a gloomy day, and I have Yorkshire tea and an endless supply of novels via Kindle, so I will knit and read.
