Hmmm...find a new project of course....LOL. A bag of light blue handspun Polwarth yarn, with hints of meadow green running thru it called out to me. I decided to give the Lacy vest from Mountain Colors a try. The bonus is, that the green that is in this yarn is the same green that I will be using for Birch.
In between spinning up another skein of Opalessence, I worked on this lacey vest. Normally, I don't name projects like other knitters do....but when I think of this vest, I think of the flower, Queen Anne's lace....so this vest has been dubbed, "Anne". I have to say that I am so enjoying knitting with this Polwarth. It is very soft. To my spinning friends out there.......if you get a chance to work with Polwarth......go for it. Knitting with it is a joy!
It is such an easy lace to remember, making the vest move along very quickly. This may just become my Rhinebeck vest to wear along with Birch :-).
What Kind Of Knitting Needle Are You?
Ok......in my in between projects boredom yesterday, I found this cute little quiz. So what kind of needle are you..........they had me pegged pretty good.....LOL!
You are pink aluminum. Retro, straightforward and fun, you love classic things. If they're 99 cents at Goodwill all the better! You are moved by striking colors and tasty morsels, and you like a stitch-n-bitch session in the sun. Just remember, while you're being kitschy cool, don't get too cold. Ice cubes are best kept in your cocktails, baby!
Today we had a family come to visit the dogs. Part of being a breeder is entertaining folks who are interested in the breed and allowing them the opportunity to see if a Cavalier is the right dog for their family.
Louie enjoyed his visit, can you tell??
Lest you think that I am being untrue to my Faux Russian Stole, let me assure you that she will be worked on.......when it is a bit cooler. It has just been to darn hot to have Shetland wool on my lap, but promises of cooler, drier temps are promised for the weekend!
Have a happy and safe Fourth of July!!!!~~
