Friday, the most glorious day of the week. I never thought I’d make it, yet here I am. Well, the week ain’t over yet. We’ll see.
Newsflash — I wore my Klaralund yesterday. I’m very happy with her and can report that I had no issues. No fighting with the rest of my outfit. No unseemly bunching up hither and yon. Klara’s a cool chick.
Here’s an early evening photo from Sleeve Island:
And . . . later last night I finished the second sleeve of Eloise. All that remains is to sew her sweet self together. Oh, and put buttons on her.
So . . . what’s up knitwise?
Remember a while back I bought a second pile of Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk to make her design Freida? And then I decided, in my own distinctive wish-washy way that I would use the yarn to make Magnolia from Rowan Vintage Style?
I’ve changed my mind again. My lovely golden tan Alpaca Silk is in the beginning stages of being knit into a new Wendyknits design. Just a simple, easy-fitting pullover, probably with a crew neck.
I’ve had a couple of questions about buying drop spindles. I bought mine online, from The Bellwether. If you do a Google search for “Bosworth midi” you’ll find a number of online retailers.
