Instead, Mitch and I took a drive to the Tomales Bay. The weather was just gorgeous, and the road was empty. We picked the good day for it, because just a few days later they held the Tour of California on that route.
I swear. The sunny days in February in Northern California are the best. The hills are green, the sky is blue, the sun is warm and gentle. Something about this little trail made me think of my childhood.
I spun the rest of the Corriedale to knit the Ribwarmer. It was the huge ball (my guess is about two pounds) of white roving that came with my Ashford Traditional. It's all gone now -- I've practiced, admired, dyed and experimented a lot of things with it. It was wonderful to spin.
So, no one I know likes the Spring issue of Interweave Knits! The lack of variety is what gets me. I did appreciate some of the articles, but none of the patterns. As Stefaneener puts it, they are all "look at my belly" designs! I will look forward to a nice surprise in the Summer issue, but that feels like a long time to wait... I should be receiving the new Spin-Off soon, and I hope it's a good one!
