Do you remember when I posted about this future project
Well, I sent the photo to Chris
and she custom dyed this wool! I can
hardly wait to get started! I need to finish up a few more things but
this is really calling me.
Chris had a booth right across from me at the craft show last weekend. It was fun to be able to chat and catch up. Sometimes it was a little difficult to hear her over the screaming calls of the yarn. In addition to the custom wool I came home with a few other things.
Three hanks of this fabulous wool jumped into my bag. Chris said she dyed it for me the same day as the rose yarn. She thought it would look good on me. I think she is right. I put it in my bag before I knew she had dyed it with me in mind! How perfect is that? I plan to make a pull over sweater for myself out of this.
I am eager to spin this Blue Face Leicester roving. I know it will look different from the dyed yarn.
And, because it called to me from across the hall, I picked up this pink and brown wool.
I think finishing so many projects in the last few weeks has me ready to start some knew projects after Christmas. I am looking forward to some comfort knitting this winter. I may even participate in the Knitting Olympics this year.
Are you getting excited about any new projects?
I hope you have a happy Winter Solstice. Remember, after today the days are getting longer. It is a good thing to keep in mind while shoveling snow the rest of the winter. Each day is a little longer than the one before. That is what gets us through until spring - that and the knitting.
