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.
