Today’s trip to the Catoctin zoo. My daughter gave a stern talk to the alpacas for pushing. Also I wanted to snuggle the angora goat and/or hide him in my bag and smuggle him home. As unrealistic as that may be due to his size….. I adore angora goats. Not just for their fiber. They look like they are straight out of a fairy tale.
This is a fact of life: My couch has an insatiable hunger for crochet hooks, yarn needles, and stitch counters.
Insert DPN, Cable needle, etc…
Lace portion started.
FINALLY cast this on. I wanted to make it before I even started knitting last year. I’m using an acrylic yarn because I couldn’t find a wool yarn with the right colors that I was willing to wear around my neck. I’m a little picky when it comes to texture. And sometimes acrylic is all that doesn’t make me itch.
More things to spin! Woohoo. Can’t wait to spin this up. I think I will split it up to make it a gradient yarn. Not the best colors for me but I think they would look good on my mom. A lot of the time I don’t ever wear the stuff I make. So what does it really matter right. I couldn’t resist the pretty!
We went to Rose hill manor heritage museum. I love all of the antique spinning and knitting stuff.
I’ve got some knitting to do.
Another sweater for the munchkin. I don’t mind making her sweaters yet haven’t even attempted one for me… Does anyone have suggestion for a raglan construction cardigan?
Here are some hats I made for the Purlbee and the pattern to make your own! Just in time for knitting season. Enjoy! - Gina
