First Skein of the British Top with Silk done!

This is the first skein of two. You can see the shine on this yarn.. would make a stunning sweater.
Close up.

Penny to help tell the size. I still need to do, Wraps per Inch, so I can tell people what weight this yarn is.
Also need to get the rest of that yarn plied, which should result in another skein about the same size.

Lets see.....
DS was able to drive DH to town the other day, to help add to his drive time, so he can get his licence.. sooner or later.
We have been working on the garden to get it ready. Planted peas, spinach, lettuce, broccoli and cauliflower. Bought one cheap tomato plant but it needs to be protected at night. Kind'a pushing the will see what happens.
All the animals are doing well. Cats are helpful as usual. Really need to start telling Cat short stories again. LOL
Grass is starting to grow a lot and as soon as we have a mostly dry day... DH is going to need to mow it. Not complaining....rather mow grass than deal with snow.
Job status is still the same but DH is looking at Intel again for a very short term contract job. I am beginning to wonder if there are any real full time real jobs out there...or has the country gone Contract only?
