Happy Wednesday everyone!
Today, the Spring edition of Rhythm of the Home is live with an article by yours truly about the importance of working with our hands in the home. Be sure to check it out for lots of amazing inspiration from all sorts of folks!
Also, I’m joining Ginny and others today for Yarn Along.
The second sleeve for my Hourglass sweater is almost done. After that, I have just the yoke to go – which will take a little while because I’m going to change the pattern to include a Fair Isle pattern found in Zimmerman’s Knitting Around. I’m running short on yarn, and when I saw her gorgeous Fair Isle yoke, it seemed serendipitous. Knitting Around, by the way, is amazing – lovely patterns as always, and Elizabeth’s incredible life story with fabulous old photos. Love it!
Also this week, I’ve been reading The Natural Knitter and The Knitter’s Book of Yarn. My friend Sarah and I have been busy cleaning fleeces (remember last year’s shearing?) and so I’ve been learning about what weight yarn I want, and how many plys . . . really exciting. I can’t wait to have Molly & Curly yarn. Hmm . . . which reminds me, that I need to order some shears. Anyone have some to recommend?
