Taking a break from hats, I've just started on a pair of socks. The yarn is Seacoast Handpainted in color "fire & coal." I had to go down to size 0 needles for this.
This morning a work colleague gave me her mother's old knitting books. Amoung them is a book from England called "Stitchcraft", no date.
Here are some pics of the yarns I purchased from Blackberry Ridge.
I've been waiting to get a picture of this one. It's nice, not my favorite accomplishment ever, but it's nice. It's loved, too.
Just the Danica pattern from knitty.com
Yesterday, Bill (WJBDineen) and I visited Blackberry Ridge Woolen Mill outside of Mt. Horeb, WI (near Madison, WI). They do mostly custom batches.
I just finished this for our gang. It was a fairly quick knit, finished it in about 6 hours. So far Tippy has dominated it, Guess I'll have to make more.
We have two cats, Osiris and Apollo. One in particular, Apollo, likes to sit with me while I'm knitting.
Hello Gentlemen and Occasional Women,
As it turned out, 2007 was one of the more calamitous years in my life.
Didn't get to do much knitting over the holidays, but have made some headway with the Lizard Ridge afghan, sixteen squares down and eight to go :-)
