After all my colour pooling problems last week, I found a pattern I wanted to knit, and went up to Guyra after school on Monday and bought the yarn for the project at Black Sheep Wool and Wares. I cast on on Monday night. It’s the DNA Scarf from Two Sheep, in Jo Sharp DK Tweed colour 416 Cocoa. I love this yarn, it’s 85% wool, 10% silk and 5% cashmere – I made a cardigan in the Paper Rose colour about two years ago. And yes, the pattern does scream “I am a nerd”, but heck, I am a nerd.
I still have a bit of the ick. I finished the antibiotics on Monday, had a rotten Tuesday, but was much better on Wednesday and continue to steadily improve. It was Spinning and Weaving today, and I found that the group had finally received “Yarn to Dye For” – the book I ordered last week from Amazon. Typical. I had a look at it, and I’m quite happy I bought it for myself anyway.
