Knitting is going apace. Never any end in sight and that is the way that I like it! It is a little scary how many idea’s are floating around my brain right now. It seems that Spring Fever is lasting well into Summer.
There has been a new addition to the household. Her name is Colette and she is trés chic. Her counterpart, Maisie had been visiting but now has returned home.
Colette has a very important role in this household and she will be much photographed as she helps me display my knitting. Right now she is displaying the hanks of Buffalo and Black Gold!
I did have a bit of a setback this weekend. I have been working on a Cabled Cloche in some of the Buffalo Wool yarns – “All that Jazz”.
I had the ends woven in and “All that Jazz” was finished. I put in on and realized that it was a lot too slouchy for a cloche. I put it down, backed away and waited for this morning to rip it back. I will finish it this evening I think!
Because of the slight set-back I picked up the Holden Shawlette. It was waiting for me to find my undyed Handmaiden Lace Silk.
I still haven’t found the silk (I have about 3 hanks in my stash!). So I went with plan B. I am now working with some left-over undyed silk/mohair blend for my accent! It will work as well, maybe better. Sometimes the unplanned substitutions make things more interesting!
The lace class for the Celtic Fichu was fabulous. The weather was perfect, not too hot and not too sunny. The courtyard was a perfect setting for the class and a good time was had by all.
Hope that you have some sunny, summertime knitting planned for your summer!
