A whole lot of Fridays have passed since my last FAF post, and I have knitted through many of them, but summer will do that to you.
Running the fiber gamut this week, including a strange mixing of Wool Ease (a color my daughter loved, wool and acrylic) and Fleece Artist Peter Rabbit (a warm angora/nylon/wool) to make a fantastic top-down Trapper Hat. My daughter will be exploring Icelandic climes this fall and needed
a protective shield while she is so far from home a hat.
Stephen West’s Spectra scarf has been frogged and recast, using the same lovely cotton from Wolles. I set this aside some time ago because didn’t like the way it was turning out; after glaring at it for a while I changed to a much smaller needle and we are speaking again. It’s a nice pattern to work, and the slow change in the yarn color adds excitement. Yes, excitement.
Here’s to fall’s approach, although it’s pretty warm & humid today. Maybe next Friday.
