Pooh Bear in the Honey Pot
Like Pooh Bear.
But that's life. I find that I have to force myself to do things. When I do them, I am happy, but the motivation to do them in the first place just isn't there. Okay, enough.
I have completed my handspun hooded sweater. I lurve knitting with handspun, and this is perfect. Totally the kind of thing I have always longed for. I did somehow manage to put the buttonholes on the left side, but other than that, I am pleased. I used a 3needle I cord bind off for the hood, and an I cord bind off for the front edges- so it has some nice details. The fiber is from (where else?) Fat Cat knits, and it's Polwarth in Shadowed Glen, with some turquoise added. Thanks again, Ginny.
I spun some BFL in Dragonfly- loved every second of this too.
Some of you may remember this design "Minstrel" that has been in the works for a long time. I am on a mission to either finish things, or ditch them. This has all the autumn colours I love, and I hope to photograph it THIS coming autumn- in my beloved High Park. This is a cardigan, and there is a hap shawl too.
I do love Shetland yarn, and wanted to make Kate Davies "Rams & Yowes" blanket. Added to the ever -expanding queue. This is the Shetland Supreme, which I have worked with before, and I love it. (I DO seem to be full of love today...)
Spring is springing- and the hyacinths smell gorgeous.
But Kitten Chow wants to know when squirreling season officially starts. Can someone help a kitty out with that?
