With the beautiful Gotland wool yarn, I finished the baby bonnet from the book, Vintage Knits for Modern Babies and a little bunny from my own pattern.
I used up just about all of the 120 yard skein. Again, beautiful yarn to work with.
Each Tuesday, Woolful not only announces their new podcast, but they also offer a giveaway from one of their guests. A couple of weeks ago, I won the giveway from O-Wool! I have these three beautiful skeins of their Local wool which is 50% certified organic merino and 50% alpaca from New Jersey - now what to knit with them?
Our family has been watching Larkrise to Candleford, a BBC series that aired several years ago. Our daughter, Abby, was able to download them at the library for us.
The series is wonderful - thank you for those that recommended it when I blogged about Mike's hernia surgery.
I am admiring many of the hand knit and crocheted wraps and shawls the characters wear and am looking for some similar patterns.
We have time for watching in the evening and knitting because even though the calender says April, we are still deep in snow and cold.
Emmy asked me the other day, "Mom, remember when we saw the grass?"
And we reminisced yesterday about the April 1st when Abby and Isaac went for a quick swim in our pond and this year we could probably still be skating if we kept up with the clearing.
