Happy to be sharing again this week with Ginny and so many others.
A few days ago I received a sweet, thoughtful package from Mama Ilse and in it were some circular needles.
While I am still working on the rustic rainbow blanket, I just "had to" start another blanket with some of the new needles. I remembered seeing the Two Lights Blanket pattern in Issue 4: Wood of Taproot and using some organic cotton from Knitpicks, got started. The pattern is simple, yet offers enough variety to keep you interested and the result is a neat chevron pattern. The organic cotton from Knitpicks is affordable and really soft.
I am reading Barnheart by Jenna Woginrich and am enjoying it like I knew I would. Farming is in my heart and soul. One inspiration I have just from reading about 1/3 of the book, is angora rabbits! On our small homestead, they may be a good addition. We can't realistically have sheep here because we don't have pasture and much of the 3.25 acres is wet,so this may a wonderful alternative to having our own wool!
Does anyone have any experience with angoras?
