The garden and yard have a lot of my attention this week
I love my iris
In other news, my friend Linda gave me a bag of cleaned soft underbelly fur from her pup, Isabelle. It smells like doggie shampoo. Sammie investigates
The fibers are very short, about an inch. The fiber will need to be carded and rolled on to puni's before spinning, both of which I need more practice at. I have done this with cat fur before but not dog fur.
I had a nice weekend with lots of road knitting time as my son and I motored to upstate SC and back. The baby sweater didn't go as planned, I changed patterns, here we are so far
It will be a little hoodie with buttons up the front. I modified the pattern to do it in the round, my strategy. A description of the pattern is here; it's free although one must sign in to Bernat to get it.
