Knitting has been slow around here lately. The kids house work and taking care of a friend’s farm have kept me busy. I love taking care of the “critters” though!
These are just some of my buddies at the farm, and they vary all very entertaining.
I have finished plum rain, and love it, but have no pictures yet. I made a pair of socks for my husbands God daughter, which she loved. She has cf and was in the hospital fighting a lung infection, she is such a little toughie!
Work continues on ferdy, slowly but surely. That sweater takes so much space on my lap! I use a tablet to count rows, to keep track of when to increase, the book with the pattern, and copious notes to track increases and what pattern row I am on. This is not a convenient or quick knit, but it is definitely beautiful! I am nearly half way finished the sleeves now.
And finally, a pair of socks for me on the needles! The last few pairs have been given away; which I admit, hurts just a little.
Hermione everyday socks, knit in juniper moon farm her riot fine, a scrumptious blend of baby alpaca and nylon. I can not attest to how these will hold up to being worn, but my gosh, they are soft and gorgeous! I have a sweater planned for some of this yarn and can not wait, but must get ferdy’s sleeves finished before I start, or ferdy is done for!
Also on the needles is a mistake rib cowl for me from the plum rain leftovers. And yup, there are mistakes! I think one is visible near the bottom of that picture.
I also recently got my second tattoo in memory of Mommy Jo, my amazing grandmother who I lost nearly six years ago. She was a force of nature and beloved by all, and the source of the “happy day” at the end of all my posts. It was her way of saying goodbye.
