Hi Dear Blog Readers,
Sorry for the absence last week. We had a party here and I was pooped !
I am sooo close to finishing up the 2nd sleeve on the Fern and Feather sweater.
Joe t old me the colors look Southwestern...I agree!
Finally decided on some plain green buttons. I like the little pop of color
I took the yarn and pulled it apart to use as thread for to sew the buttons on.
Omitted the top button, It would have been there at the top. Looked stupid because the pattern had you leave that opening anyway.
I'm happy with that decision.
I hope Remy's mom liked it. Laurie did!
Ruth started a new sweater! In her own words:
Pattern is liminal by Nell knits. Yarn is euroflax linen. Mini skeins. I originally wound the skeins in my winder. The balls exploded apart stitches would pop off my needle if I put it down. it was like knitting with wire. Not fun. I decided to get online to see if I could find any tips. Of course I could! tips said to wind balls by hand. Said to wash and if needed put the skeins in the dryer. Said to use wooden or bamboo needles. I did those things and knitting is going much better. Phew!
I like it a lot. Love the color changes.
Martha is almost done with the 2nd sleeve on her sweater! I bet she will be done or close by next week! Lovely!
