…Joining Ginny’s YarnAlong, sharing what I’m knitting and reading….
I had some Luna Grey yarn leftover from the hat I made for Jeff. Hmm… what to make with it? I didn’t have enough to make a very big project. I looked at the textured yarn and thought what an incredible cowl it would make. I wanted to make some more kid’s things for the May Faire… so I knitted up a kid’s cowl! I had just enough yarn to do it. I finished it up with some of our Wooly Moss Roots Buttons in yew. I like the way it turned out and I’m so glad we’ll have another wooly handknit in the front of our booth this weekend. I really enjoy knitting cowls. They are a simple, easy knit you can bring along with you (I finished this one thanks to the drive to and fro to market) and they are a good excuse to use more buttons, which always makes me happy. I started a kid’s hat with some other leftover yarn and I’d love to finish it for May Faire too, but the next long drive where Jeff is driving is on the way there, so we’ll see about that.
I started reading ‘Rosemary Gladstar’s Herbal Remedies for Children’s Health.’
It’s so nice to be enjoying such a quick read right now. And I always love learning more about herbs. I’ve read other books by Rosemary Gladstar and I really like her spirit. Her love of herbs shines through and makes her books fun to read.
For fun, a few more pictures I took of the cowl:
As I was taking pictures of the cowl, Bracken came over and put it on, then acted silly. It was warm out and he had thrown his shirt off in the yard, so I thought his topless self wearing a wooly cowl was a pretty funny combination.
He grabs my cowl and wears it sometimes. I need to make him a cowl of his very own
(one that’s not quite as big as this one.)
How about you? Knitting? Reading?
