My lovely brothers were here again the end of last week. Of course a discussion ensued about obtaining wool. They were sure they’d see sheep in our back yard. I assured them that I had no interest in that part of the process. I like my wool to show up like this.
I already showed you these photos last week, but I think it’s so interesting to see the roving, then the yarn, and the way it knits up. I mentioned I was disappointed that the yarn ended up so muted.
But this is how it’s knitting up.
I love it! The pattern is Noro Bias Lace Scarf. And yes, it’s a free pattern on ravelry!
See? Proof that sheep are striped!
Ok, maybe all that cold medicine I took last week affected my brain! Speaking of colds (how’s that for a great segue?) the kids went back to school last Tuesday, and I got the cold they’ve all been passing around since before Thanksgiving. For the most part, I did nothing last week. One day I did 10 loads of laundry in between laying on the couch. So now it’s time to get busy. Maybe the blog won’t be so boring either, but don’t count on that!
Here’s my first project this week.
See the beautiful morning sun lighting my sewing room? Nope! I don’t either. It’s too messy. I started cleaning out the cupboards last week, but I just didn’t have the energy. So now it’s time!
I’ll be back soon with a photo of an immaculate (or at least presentable) sewing room.
