Memorial Day in the Park
with a thermos of gin and tonic. It was good. The weekend was filled with biking and gym and food and family and finishing my book. Next up? War and Peace. In light of the comments Hannah and I have been getting, I think we can add a knitting aspect. Something Russian. Or with a Russian name. Maybe each participant can choose. We can start a Ravelry group. Discuss the book, discuss the knitting. Why not? Want to join? Send me an email or Ravelry message, or leave a comment.
I've been toiling away at Lochinver, and finally got a nice daylight photo that does justice to the different gansey textures it sports. I'm just starting the underarm gussets. I also got the yarn for a new project at Yarns in the Farms. Grellow, meet Pornge. Don't go thinking I'm done with Grellow. There's plenty of room for both in my House of Yarn.
The thing on the right is a simple scarf for my mom made of Alchemy Haiku. It's coming along. Finally, I saw Taylor, the office Yarns in the Farms Fiber Elf, in her completed Neiman. From Rowan Cashcotton DK. Perfect!
