There I was. A knitter with two works in progress: socks and a sweater. And muscle spasms in the back.
On Friday I was standing around, waiting for the naproxen to kick in (in these situations, sitting is not an option). My swift and ballwinder were already set up, and two skeins of Artyarns Silk Rhapsody just happened to be lying around.
Before I knew it, they were wound into balls. Before I knew it, I had something that looked like this.
It’s not my fault, honest. Muscle relaxants can make you do crazy things. I swear.
This is Evelyn A. Clark’s Leaf Lace Shawl. The yarn, Artyarns Silk Rhapsody, is a handpainted yarn made up of two strands. One strand is 70% kid mohair and 30% silk. The other strand is 100% silk. I’m using color #105.
Knitting with this yarn is like eating a hot fudge sundae — it’s pure indulgence!
This is a photo my dad (Happy Birthday, Dad!) sent me of some Barbados sheep — they look like goats, don’t they? I was intrigued, so I did a Google search and discovered that they are Barbados Blackbelly Sheep. Go figure!
Happy Mother’s Day. Now let me sleep.
