Remember I promised ya'll that one day I would again post a picture that wasn't taken on my laptop? Here you go:
Look what arrived in the mail from Dorothy! Beautiful wool, dyed by Dorothy herself. Isn't it cool!?? It is very soft and the colors are so rich. I wonder if this yarn will felt...perhaps I could make a technicolor sheep???? We'll see. I am going to have to think on this. Also! She sent me the needles you see sticking out the top of the yarn. They are wonderful, too. Thank you Dorothy!!!
I can see the light at the end of the scarf tunnel now. I've completed about 20" on the second half. I'm really happy with the way it looks. I had to frog a little last night (about one repeat) because I had picked up a stitch. I really should work a little harder at maintaining my knitting focus. Believe it or not, most of these unknitting incidents have been because of my own carelessness. I know you find that hard to believe but, really, it is true!
The Grandmother Purl squares have been coming in at a steady pace. I hope to post an update there either today or tomorrow. The squares are all so lovely and so different. I can't wait to start sewing them together.
