Here is what happens when you give the kids some face paint and 30 minutes of unsupervised time.
Personally, I think the idea was a good one in theory, but the execution leaves a little something to be desired.
Luckily, there has been a lot of knitting to get me through.
I flew through this Age of Brass & Steam kerchief. It went from cast on to cast off in two days. Two days, people!
Of course, it didn’t hurt that this was the first handspun that I have ever managed to spin ballanced enough to actually knit something out of it. I loved every minute of it and can’t wait to send it off to it’s new home.
And, this shawl, which was originally a gift from a good friend, was also on and off the needles in record time. In case you couldn’t tell from the glamour shot, its the Empress Scarf from Ilga Leja, which was designed for Woolgirl’s lace club last year.
I can’t wait to free these two shawls from the blocking pins and use them to ward off the maddeningly cold weather that we have been experiencing for the last week. All I want to do when it gets this cold is knit. Which means that this sock should jump off the needles in short order too.
