Time with Tegna

I've been spending a lot of quality time with Tegna lately.
Now that the pesky pretty lace border portion is in the rear view mirror it's pretty much mindless knitting  from here on out.  I'm 5 inches in with 10 more to go before I have to dust of the cobwebs of my slowly deteriorating senior mindset and prepare for the big divide for armholes.  I'm trying not to think about that right now though and just settle in for some blissful knitting in the round.
Meanwhile things are busy in the spinning room trying to get some more DK spun up for the big finish.
This is easier said than done right now since all the wheels are being fed at the moment but I did manage to get
one oversized bobbin done which has been washed, thwacked and hung to dry.
I've got all that white alpaca fluff going on the Minstrel.  This one just might end up being spun out on the porch if the weather holds up.  Of course that would mean the wind would have to die down some.  I've got some really nice gray alpaca going on the Ashford because crazy me has her eyes set on Carbeth for my next big project.  Why oh why can't I just focus on one thing at a time!!
