Can you feel it yet? A wee bit of Christmas in the air? I know, I know.... Thanksgiving isn't even here yet, but it's been so blessed cold up here that it's hard not to look ahead to the winter holiday.
Of course working on the fiber and yarn pictured above is putting me in that Christmas mood as well. The fiber is a Black Velvet angora blend that I started working on last February. I do remember getting incredibly busy though last February and losing track of what I was working on, but I recently came across my poor unfinished roving this week, so we are back on track again. I quickly remembered how much I LOVE working with angora. L.O.V.E. I.T.!
I can't say much about the Red Flannel Opulence other than I am excited about what it is going to become. I do have one little gripe though....not with the pattern or with the yarn, but with the lack of a good knitting store in my neighborhood.
I will tell you straight up that I have a GAZILLION knitting needles......but do I have the size needed for this project? Of course not. My choice is to either drive 45 minutes to Patternworks in Center Harbor or to order online....aggghhhh! Needless to say, with the skein of yarn wound into a ball, I am anxious to get started, so I will be heading out tomorrow to buy needles.
Yikes.....I started this post just before a work phone conference 3 hours ago and now "Life On Mars" is on so I must go..... Have a GREAT night!
