|Red Heart Boutique Yarn in Midnight|
Yesterday, Mr. Fantastic was not feeling well so I took the day off to give him a little TLC. He needed it. I worked a bit on my design that's due and actually knit my quota for the day. I'm hoping by tomorrow at this time the body will be completed. In this picture I am almost up to the armholes. The sweater will be worked all in one piece to the underarms and then split for the fronts and back. I can't decide if I should work the sleeves separately and sew them in or pick up stitches around the armhole and knit the sleeves down. The yarn company asked for a beginners pattern, I'm torn.
|Coopworth fleece soaking|
Since it's a rainy, yucky day and I am here knitting away, I thought I would wash some more of the coopworth fleece. I made some packets last night while watching television. I just love the whole fiber prep thing!
I am also washing this fleece from Namaste Farms... lucky me to have a friend who is a shepherdess and will send me fleeces! I am getting more fleeces this week. A merino (which I am sending to a small mill for processing) and two more fleeces from the same shepherd the coopworth fleece came from. I would like to have a bunch of fiber washed and prepped so that I can spin the summer away at the beach!
