Joining Ginny’s Yarn Along, sharing what I’m knitting and reading.
That first picture was a “blooper”, but I like it. The second picture doesn’t give the beautiful colors justice, but tomorrow there is some sunshine in the forecast and I plan on taking more pictures then. I just finished this walnut cowl. The yarn arrived on Friday from Brambleberry Yarns. It’s organic merino, naturally dyed with walnuts. I love working with this yarn. It’s so luscious and soft and feels incredible to knit with.
A great thing about all the driving we’ve been doing lately is that it means more time to knit. I wound this yarn into a ball in the car on our way to market Saturday morning, then started knitting. I knit in our booth whenever Jeff and Bracken went somewhere. I even knit in the dark on the way home, since Jeff drove that night. I finished knitting the cowl in our booth on Sunday and couldn’t wait to get home and add a button. I chose one of our buttons in reclaimed black walnut. This cowl is for our market booth/shop.
I’ve made progress on Jeff’s slippers. I didn’t bring them to market because I wanted car/booth knitting that didn’t require much focus. I’ve been knitting his slippers mostly at night, before bed. I figured out the gusset and am almost finished with the decreases on the second sock. Next is the foot and then the toe. I love watching them transform before my eyes.
For reading, slowly but surely reading ‘How Children Learn’ by John Holt. Reading progress is typically pretty slow this time of year, but on the other hand my knitting progress increases.
How about you? Knitting? Reading?
