It feels like it has been a while since I posted. Thank you for all of the birthday wishes for my mom. Granny backed out on us but with good reason. My mom got a ton of Manos. I must photograph her latest throw. It is goregous. I feel a fight brewing with my sister over these. I bought a bit of the discontinued Mission Falls cotton and a skein of Berroco Plush for Ugg booties. Not too bad but I think I need to stop buying yarn for a while. It feels like it’s at addiction status. Maybe workout more and buy yarn less.
I have been working on the little Green Mountain Spinnery sweater I bought at Maryland Sheep and Wool. It is knitting up pretty quickly. Sleeves and neck are all that is left. Ann, Peggy and Ricki thought the color was a bit feminine so I bought some Lamb’s Pride Worsted in a more masculine color. I still think the blue is okay but it was 3 against 1. This will be a gift for Molly, the daughter of Kevin’s twin. The darkness of the yarn is hiding what little cable detail there is.
Here and there I have been working on end of the year scarves. What can I say, I appreciate the teachers more than I hate knitting with novelty yarns. So, I won’t bore you with those details. Last week was Flower Picture Week or something like that. I didn’t participate ’cause I am that kind of rebel. Instead I say show your Flower Eating Insect Week.
