On the go

The last weekend of April I traveled to The Loopy Ewe Spring Fling.   I did some knitting but had no FOs. 

I had a great time with knitting friends old and new,

attended classes led by wonderful designer/teachers

and finally was given a new knitting identity to use on Ravelry and other places that require user names.  I’m now southparknitter because all my knitting friends called me “Timmeh!” like Timmy on South Park.

Last weekend on Sunday I ventured over to Rising Meadows Farm and the Goat Lady Dairy for open farm.  I didn’t get out of the car at Goat Lady Farm as I had inappropriate footwear for the hike from the parking lot and frankly the cheese would need to be exquisite for me to walk that far to get it.  I do however and will walk for fiber or yarn.

At Rising Meadows I purchased Cocoa’s fleece (moorit corriedale)

and some roving made from the wool of Josie and Arianna who are Navajo Churros.   My plan is to spin and dye (?) Cocoa to knit a sweater.

I finally finished my Daily Sweater.  This sweater is from MASON DIXON’S OUTSIDE THE LINES book and knit is Cascade Pima Melange.

Also finished is sock 1 of my St Louis Socks.   I’m also working a pair of plain vanilla socks, 2 baby sweaters (one in assembly stage), Oregon cardigan which will be hibernating for the summer for fear that sweaty hands will cause felting and a Comfort Shawl for prayer shawl.

One of the things that happens when I go on retreats is that I come home inspired and ready to cast on new types of projects.  This time it was lace.  I’ve been “chomping at the bit” for two weeks wanting to cast on Knitspot’s Whispering Pines in Malabrigo Lace Emerald.  My new rules require that I finish the St Louis socks before I cast on but rules are made to be broken–right?  So last night I could wait no longer and I cast on and knitted a few rows.  Hopefully that will satisfy me until sock 2 is done.

Due to technical difficulties (no internet at home for several days), posting of this blog was delayed.  I’ve completed several items and have my new loom.  Pictures to follow soon (I hope).

Grace and peace to all and happy knitting to my knitting friends.
