I swear I’m still alive guys, it’s just been a real bad couple of weeks for me. My meds haven’t been working so I’m going through a switch up and that’s never good. I haven’t been caring about much of anything which is why I’ve let my blogs just sit here. I’ll be back around soon, hopefully. 

So, for the past couple of months, there have been a lot of articles about using knitting as a form of therapy. I’m really glad that this is getting the notice that it deserves.

There are all sorts of different theories about why this is and how exactly it’s helping your brain, and I think it’s worth a look into all of them.

So I’m back from my vacation! I can’t believe I had the chance to spend 5 days at this beautiful place right on the river.

If anyone offers to take you to the Frio River out in West Texas, you take it. This place is gorgeous.

The water was so damn clear you could see all the fish, and those buggers were so bold they kept coming up and biting my aunts butts when they were sitting in the inner tubes. I would dive under water and poke at them and they didn’t care.

My husband ALMOST caught a bass by hand, big sucker too. He had his hands around the tail before the fish even realized what was going on. 

I think we spent maybe 10 hours a day in the water, and I even got a chance to do some writing for my book. 

All and all, the best vacation I’ve ever had. So I’m back from my vacation! I can’t believe I had the chance to spend 5 days at this beautiful place right on the river.

Day 20 was travel day and I’ve spend many hours on the autobahn, so no spinning in the afternoon. Luckily I did manage to finish the second bobbin of the blue fiber in the morning. Yay!

Before, after, and even more after!

2x2 cabled ply yarn, Panda blend (merino/bamboo/nylon) from FatCatKnits “Greek Myths” fiber club, “Arachne”. Somewhere north of 400 yards, and a little less than five oz. 

I love it! Never made a cabled yarn before, and the texture is just fascinating. Plus it should make really long lasting socks. thatdarncait:
