Time Goes By
Sheep Shearing Day 2010
So where did a week go, anyway? Seems like only yesterday I was up to my elbows in wonderful fleece at Thistle Cove Farm, but I discover that over a week has passed and I haven't talked about it. Or about the grand opening at Chestnut Creek School of the Arts where I took part in a street fair and parade in Galax on Saturday. Shall I just say that both events were awesome, especially Sheep Shearing Day? I came home with fleece, again, after I swore solemnly that I wouldn't!
There has been spinning done:
Miss Babs Rose Garden colorway
And knitting accomplished:
And mistakes made:
See the stitch marker for my commentary.
It may be hard to tell but there's a twisted issue in this garter stitch band for my new camisole knitted in Unplanned Peacock's Poppy colorway. A twist isn't a good thing for a waistband, y'all. So it got ripped out this morning and I'll be starting again when my brain is working properly. Bleh. In brighter news I finished this:
Completed Feather and Fan Cowl
and was very happy to find that it turned out exactly the size it should be. I only made one change; the directions said bind off loosely and I didn't like the edge, so I took the bind-off back out and made it much tighter. I also debuted my Larkspur Wrap sweater at the Chestnut Creek School event and was very pleased with the fit and style!
