I haven’t been spinning much. I’m on a knitting kick right now. I’ve done two Modern Wrappers and will likely do more. They are very simple to knit and comfortable to wear. They use a fingering weight yarn and a fine mohair, which makes a lightweight fabric. It’s especially nice if it’s a mohair/silk strand. I don’t have pictures of me wearing one yet, but will post what I do have.
My other project is a sweater for Lon. It’s coming along nicely. This is a wool blend and actually nice stuff. I wanted a sweater he could knock around in.
Here’s another picture of this project:
The yarn is Sidar Harrap Tweed and is primarily synthetic. I will make Lon a nice wool sweater, but wanted the first one to be easy care. I like this yarn. I’ve been trying to buy extra, so I can make the Kerry Blue shawl out of the leftovers.
He’s frustrating and crazy. He barks too much. Loretta hates him and the cats don’t like him. But we are very happy that he lives with us.
