Knitting, spinning, pets, food and other thoughts



Since I finished the deadline project, I was left with nothing to knit (N2K) but a sock. With warmer weather coming, I found last summer’s stash enhancement from The Knitting Room in Fond du Lac (Mirasol Samp’a; 100% cotton, 102 yds/50g per ball – yummy!) and started a sweater (cardi, short sleeves).

Toby and I spent some time sitting on the deck, while I paged through stitch pattern books, made a list of possibilities and swatched the one I liked best, then started knitting. As usual I tinkered with the pattern a little bit and mirror-imaged it at the center, but I’m liking the results πŸ™‚

Loved the blue sky, clouds and the shape and color of this sycamore tree by the creek in town on Friday.
