Tuesday night I watched the Westminster Kennel Club dog show while working on my Daily Sweater. Since I’m working the stockinette body, the sweater’s appearance hasn’t changed much.
I rewound yarn that Izzy collapsed in hopes that I can use it to weave shawl. My triangle loom arrived Friday and Saturdays will be weaving days. I wove a scarf using some yarn I’d bought on eBay (I believe the seller was Life is an expedition). I learned a couple of things that will be corrected on the next one.
Saturday I went to the shearing day at Rising Meadows farm with my fiber friend Beth. This was a fun experience and below are pictures of the trip. The shearer seemed to be between sheep every time I was in the shearing “shed” so don’t have any pictures of that process–just pictures of sheep, sheep, sheep…
I bought some Navajo Churro roving. As usual Debit closely inspected me and the roving when I arrived back home.
Friday I realized that one of the baristas at Jazzee Java is pregnant and due any time (she’s been wearing coats so this wasn’t obvious). So Sunday I sewed buttons on the February baby sweater, made booties from pattern in Last Minute Gifts book (angora booties) and “designed” a hat made using gull lace and pi shaping. When I was posing the items for this picture, Debit snatched a bootie so now it’s got dog hair all over it. Bad dog!
On the go this week, I’m working on my Snow on Cedars mitt. They need to be finished by 2/28 so I will have to work them more often (or else hurry up and finish Daily Sweater). I suspect that I’ll try to finish Daily Sweater this week and then work mitts next week.
Happy knitting to my knitting friends and grace and peace to all.
