Lovely, ain’t it? This hoggett roving was a gift from L-B, a hand-dyed Lincoln/Dorset mix. The color is a beautiful deep teal, not unlike the color of the Mediterranean Sea. L-B said she got it at Earthsong Fibers.
Of course I had to start spinning it immediately.
Yesterday afternoon TCM showed Casablanca, immediately followed by the original King Kong. And then at night, The Country Girl. All great movies to knit and spin by.
So, I did get a little bit done on the Bohus. A bit of progress on the sleeve, see?
I’m not sure why it is that I can’t settle down to some serious knitting since I’ve got the time, but I don’t seem able to. No matter, I’m just going through a bit of knitting malaise right now.
Lucy, however, is spending her time doing some serious relaxing.
What’s the best way to combat knitting malaise? A knitting road trip! I’m off early tomorrow morning for a quick trip south for a couple of days, so hopefully much knitting will be done. I’ll be doing a Richmond yarn crawl tomorrow afternoon, then spending most of Thursday at Holly Spring Homespun. Can’t wait!
The blog will likely be back on Thursday night or Friday morning. See you then!
