Our latest episode is currently being edited from our field trip to NYS Sheep and Wool Festival at our site for the Video Podcast http://letsknit2gether.com
While there, I picked up 3 handspindles and some fiber to learn how to spin my own yarn and I bought some beautiful handpainted rayon yarn that will make a fantastic shawl.. I also ran into Galina Khmeleva who taught me about Orenburg Shawls.
We’ve been so busy getting our episodes done that I haven’t had much chance to catch up on my blog for a while.
Currently working on:
t took me weeks to finally find the yarn that would be satisfying and then I got a glipse of this Noro Silk Garden in what has to be the best fall colors. I found it in Carmel, CA (yeah that’s right Clint Eastwood’s hideout) while I was traveling on business.
I’ll post pictures after more progress.
I just completed the knitty.com Fetching fingerless gloves pattern in an off white. These are great! I bought 4 balls of the Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran, not realizing that one ball is sufficient for a pair. So I made 2 pairs and I’m working on a third!
DK Weight Navy Blue Vest
After several months of working on the navy blue vest, I’ve finished the back and I am on the front of the vest at the point where I’ve decreased for the armholes and I’m currently decreasing for the vneck. It’s coming along fine. I still think I can be finished in time for Christmas.
