Here’s Lucy, relaxing in her Daddy’s lap after her Thanksgiving dinner.
Thank you for all your good wishes and lovely comments about Elizabeth I. We’ve had a great weekend. The turkey was cooked, much food was partaken of, and much jocularity ensued.
And I did some more spinning.
This was spun from more Blue Moon Fiber Arts roving, another merino and angora blend. The colorway is called Atomic #6.
It was from a roving that L-B acquired and split with me — my skein is 2 ounces and 116 yards. I’m thinking about using it together with the Purple Rain handspun I finished earlier in the week and perhaps making a scarf.
I also started a sweater.
This is the West Side Raglan, a lovely simple design from Oat Couture. I’m making it from this yarn:
This yarn is from Chester Farms, and is a cotton/wool/silk blend. The colorway is called Sea Shell and is a nice heathered tan.
Actually, I did more than just start this sweater — I’ve got the front and back done.
It’s knit at a gauge of 4.5 stitches/inch on a 5mm needle — it goes very quickly!
