It's a Start!!!
Well, well.....I've finally rejoined the blogosphere. It's been a busy time for me since my mom's been ill. Rest assured I've been knitting and spinning all the while. Above you see some wonderful merino Ashland Bay fiber I purchased from RI Handspun a few weeks ago. The red color is not as blue as the pic shows it to be. I'm spinning is very thinly in hopes of making a shawl with it.
Last night I had a great time at Sue's Knit In. Paula arrived and worked on a textured sweater in a dark red; thankfully she is feeling better. She hurt her foot last week :(. Judy came along wearing her newest felted dark beige scarf with interesting textures. Patty came as well; she' s been working on some socks for her demonstrations at Coggshell Farm. Sue showed us a delightful sock she knitted for her dear granddaughter.
We passed quite a bit of the time exploring old patterns that Norma passed along for the taking. We had a hoot looking at the vintage 50's and 60's knitted sweaters and outfits that each magazine revealed. At times we were crying because we laughed so hard.
