Knitting and Spun BFL
For an update on the things I have been making, I finished spinning 8oz of Blue Faced Leicester wool last week. This wool comes from a sheep named Snickers, who was raised between here and Lansing. This wool will be knitted into a scarf for Scott to match the hat I made him with some of my first handspun.
I finished a pair of socks - the toe-up, no purl version of Cookie A.'s Monkeys, using yarn that I won at my first visit to Neighborhood Knits in Dearborn.
I am currently knitting and designing a cardigan using Barbara Walker's top down raglan recipe and colorwork patterns from Sheila McGregor's book, Traditional Scandinavian Knitting.
