Having 3 different crafts that I want to do makes for difficult choices in which one I pick up. With the cold weather, I seem to be tending toward knitting at the moment. I cast on the Lightweight Pullover by Knitbot (Hannah Fettig) this week, using the Verdant Gryphon's Bugga yarn in American Rubyspot. I'm almost ready to start the raglan increases!
I also worked some more on the Color Play Mohair Wrap.
My problem with this project is I dislike working with mohair. lol! It's like working with an extra hairy Mia, mohair all over the place. Bleagh!
I also kept up with the Fussy Cut Fridays by making another star.
I had to cake up my Bugga yarn before I started the Lightweight Pullover, so I pulled out my trusty yarn swift and ball winder. The father type was very interested in the process and asked if he could do the winding. He had a great time!
(Please ignore the mess -- we hadn't picked up from the boy child's packing at the time.)
I received a lovely consolation prize from KimM's giveaway on Wisdom with Needle and Thread. She sent me these lovely hand stitched gift tags!
They're all so lovely and tiny and delicate! I love them, Kim! Thank you so much!
Like so much of the country, we've been experiencing too too cold temps, and snow too. Mia has not liked it anymore than I have. She's been finding ways to keep warm though.
(Yes, she gets in there by herself.)
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi! I hope everyone has a wonderful week.
(Hooray for Stan!)
