If you look at the sidebar on the left you should now see some progress meters for my current knitting and weaving projects. The afghan squares I was working on for my spinning and weaving group have been finished and handed in. They were quite late, since I missed the AGM in December and the meeting before yesterday’s thanks to my cold. The kid mohair lace scarf in the list is pictured (left). I bought the kid mohair from Kaalund Yarns (warning – site loads very slowly) at last year’s Wool Expo with the intention of knitting a scarf from it. But somewhere along the way I changed my mind and I was going to weave something with it, then I started knitting a triangular shawl with it but decided there wasn’t enough yarn to finish it. So this is actually its third incarnation. And it is knitting up really nicely in “Old Shale” lace. It will stay a lace scarf. The Patonyle sock is still waiting for me to frog back below the heel and the Bob & Weave shawl is waiting for the slubby wool I’ve ordered. I have already got the ribbon though. The baby blanket should be finished some time in the next week.
I went to the markets in town this morning and bought fresh zucchinis, yellow squash and snow peas. It might have been nice to dawdle around, but it was just too hot! I’m glad I got the week right – the local council distributed calanders (I got two – one at home and one to my PO Box) which has the markets down on the fourth Sunday of each month instead of the last Sunday. Doh!
I’d like to remain in denial of the following fact, but I return to work tomorrow. *wimper*
