What I Do on Thursday Night

I used to do my Fiber Arts Friday blog on Thursday night, so by the time my friends in earlier time zones are ready for some fiber filled reading, my entry is there waiting for them. But since school started, my Thursday evenings are spent watching these folks:

High school marching band is pretty exhausting business if you ask me, and I'm just watching from the sideline. These kids learn their marching music in music class and do marching related work outs in PE. Every Wednesday morning they meet at 7am for field practice; every Thursday night they practice on the football field for almost four hours; Friday night is either more practice or perform at football game; Saturday is either a full day practice or competition. We are about half way through the season, one competition down, three more to go, with the last competition in southern California -- a full weekend affair.

So there you see, I have been busy during my regularly scheduled blogging time.

While we are here, let me show you my latest yarn acquisition.

Two skeins of ever so gorgeous Tosh Merino Light, waiting to become Deep Sea Wanderer.

Happy Fiber Arts Friday! Join the party on Andrea's blog, and leave me a comment!

Green Planet Scarf Finale

Project:  Green Planet Scarf
Pattern None, it's a stockinette strip
Yarn:  Odds and ends from Green Planet Yarn, primarily natural fibers (wool, alpaca, silk, cotton)
Yardage:  No idea, but it's a few weeks worth of ends
Needles: Size 8
Cast on: Not recorded
Cast off: October, 2013
Cost: None
Notes: At Green Planet Yarn when customers buy yarn in skeins, the winding service is free. All the ties and odds and ends come off the skein go into a bag. Every few weeks I take this bag home, pick out the longer, prettier pieces, tie them together and make a magic ball. This scarf is the result of one of these magic balls. It's certainly one of a kind. I plan to give it away, so if you want it, raise your hand.
