On the needles . . . another Downtown Cowl. All the spinning this month had me itching to knit with some handspun. The yarn I chose was spun during the 2014 TdF from Greenwood Fiberworks, Downton colorway. This poor yarn has tried to become several things only to be frogged and rewound. This is the match it’s been waiting for. I’m just over half-way through the pattern. I’ve knit the Downtown cowl before, in another handspun, and love it. The photo does not do the colors justice. I’ll try to do better for the FO post.
On the wheel . . . is the only unfinished project from this year’s Tour — merino top from Ashland Bay. I bought this a couple of years ago when we visited the Kids in Florida. The label was so faded that I couldn’t read the colorway and I haven’t been able to match it with colors online. Two ounces on the first bobbin and 2 oz to go.
On the bookshelf . . . is Steeped in Evil by Laura Childs. I enjoy the Teashop Mysteries series, interesting and easy reads.
That’s it for me. What are you working on?
Enjoy your projects and the rest of your week.
