A quick and satisfying little knit (from the bottom skein in the pile from 3 posts ago)-
and a perfect fit!
Thanks to a little afterthought earband.
Which makes it snug and secure.
I can tell we are going to have lots of good times, me and my new favorite hat-
Winter is right around the corner, and it’s already gettin’ kinda nippy.
Next up, some toasty and hopefully hard-wearing mitts!
If you only had time tonight to do one of the following, which would it be?
I owe you one.
Just take a little off the front, ok?
It was a beautiful sunny day (might be our last for a while), so I jumped right on getting the partial fleece washed up and dried
I wish he would have stuck around for a more complete haircut, but he seems pretty pleased with the style- and the other guys know better than to poke fun at Edgar. 🙂
And am so pleased with the results!
In the bus-knitting category, the teal/green/chartreuse skein skein got the nod.
It is well on it’s way to being a light and smooshy feather and fan stitch cowl.
Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
Or maybe lime squeezy?
Ok, not quite done. Still needs a button or some kind of little closure thingee.
But it’s knitted, washed, blocked, and dried.
So, about 99.5% done.
And I think it’s really cute.
But I’m not really in the right mood to model anything right now.
(Sorry. It’s a lazy, schlumpy kind of Sunday night)
So now I have to decide if I want to knit another one while it’s still fresh in my mind, or shift gears and do something completely different!
And I have to decide fast,
Because I hate being without something to knit on breaks, and on the bus and such.
Knitting is sometimes the only thing that keeps be from losing my mind while using public transportation.
Powerful medicine for the bus commute.
Better take 4.
Mondays can be tough.
Been spending some quality time with the carder lately.
Catching up on processing fleece now that summer seems to be retreating.
At least rainy weather is good for something!
And some Edgar/Griff-
Thought it was probably a good idea to move some fiber down the pipeline, as I’ll probably have some new fall fleeces entering the wool pool soon!
Oh, I did a little bit of blending, too-
Here is Chone all gussied up with some dyed Romney and mohair
Just a few more inches to go-
I think it’s going to be a nice wardobe addition- and mighty toasty!
The next stage in keeping ahead of the sheeps has just been implemented.
Small camera, mounted up high, so that I can spy on unsuspecting ovines.
Here is about the perpective that the camera takes in-
Yeah, The Man is all over the tech stuff. Even got the sheeps wired now!
Meanwhile, on the other side of the fence, pups are hanging loose after a game of apple fetch.
Apple fetch is my new favorite sport.
Noone has to actually return the “ball” ( the hardest part of the game to master 🙂 )
You just keep throwing and running, and throwing and running.
The apples even kind of bounce like tennis balls.
No shortage of them on the ground this time of year!
