We are having a lazy Sunday chez WendyKnits.
Lucy is in her kitty bed, dreaming of baby chicks.
I just started spinning some Blue Moon Fiber Arts roving.
The colorway is Purple Rain and it’s merino/angora blend. Quite lovely and soft!
Last night I finished the first sleeve of Elizabeth I. Whew!
One down, one to go! I’ve started the second sleeve, but I’ll spare you a photo because guess what? It looks like the first sleeve.
I’m hoping to get this sweater done this week because I have taken the whole week off from work. Woo hoo!
I’ve got a lot to do this week, though. Tomorrow I take my car in for routine service and inspection. Tuesday I’ve got a fun family get-together. And on Wednesday, the Thanksgiving preparations will start in earnest.
I’ve already done the grocery shopping.
I think this will turn into a food blog for a few days.
Swedish Twined Knitting
There were several questions in the comments about twined knitting.
I’ve done it in the past, but it’s not something I’ve spent a lot of time doing. There is an excellent page describing it, with great photos, here. This page was created by the lovely and talented Theresa. She’s got a number of great pages of knitting tips and tricks.
I updated the total raised in our Heifer project a little while ago — we’re doing great! The next weekly prize drawing will be held on Tuesday. There’s a lot of really great stuff being given away this week. Just sayin’.
