I spun up the lovely Squash Blossom colorway of Lisa Souza's SW Merino. Even with a concussion, it came out beautifully.

My warmest thanks to Susan of KnitAJourney Podcast for the delightful chat and interview, which you can find here. It was a blast for me, Susan--thanks for making me sound so coherent!
What's On My Hook/Needles/Spindle: The list:
The Daybreak Shawl--I am on the last section and trying to stay as monogamous on this as possible. Which is pretty challenging, considering that I am staring at this pile of gorgeous handspun I churned out in the Tour de Fleece... BTW, I stuck to the original 2 blues for colors. It's just a pretty blue shawl.
Ishbel Shawl --Okay, I lied. I haven't returned to it yet.
The Argante Shawl--Not this week.
The Traveling Woman Shawl--I crashed and started it in my gogeous Squash Blossom SW Merino! It's turning out wonderfully!
I am mainly back to regualr spinning of singles. I finished the 8 ounces of Squash Blossom and double-plied it. Currently, I am whizzing through some Abstract Fibers BFL in colorway Mt Hood Rose. It wants to be laceweight. Hmmmm. Waiting for Zarzuela to finish custom-dyeing some Merino in the amazing Stormy dawn colorway.

Blather: Hey! Who knew that a concussion to lead to so many interesting adventures! Now if only it would go away...
