This week I dug out some roving that I purchased last year and finally spun it up into delicious yarn. I usually strive to have consistant thickness, but this time I let the roving speak and become what ever it wanted to become. I ended up with 268 yards of fun, bright orange creamsicle, thick and thin yarn. I don't know what type of wool this is, but I am guessing some mohair and some costswold based on the crimp. But who cares? It came out lovely and the color just makes me smile!
I also knit up a couple of baby girl hats in sweet lavender and pink. I think there is something telling me that my son and his girlfriend will have a girl this time.. or perhaps just wishful thinking. We found out this week that a new baby will be joining our family sometime in December or January and I am really looking forward to this new baby! Keep your fingers crossed for a girl.. but boy oh boy.. boys can be fun too!
I am working through my original patterns... Remaking the items so I can retake photos, so I started with my hooded scarf. I absolutely love working this scarf and I think I finally got a half way decent photo this time. Remember... I am in upstate NewYork where the wind and snow can get the better of anyone. This is the perfect hood and scarf for our type of weather.
