Three day weekend!

Since we bought a house it seems like I have had no time to relax on weekends. Hopefully with an extra day I will be able to get stuff done and relax too. Now to catch you all up on what I have been knitting.

I started the linen hand towel from Mason Dixon knitting in the yarn I bought at Yarnover. It is rough to knit with, but the results will be worth it. I am much farther along with this now. It is my bus knitting and I get about 10 rows done a day. Only 3 more pattern repeats and I will be done!

I finished knitting the Baby Bolero and I seamed up my first sleeve! This was so much fun. I think it turned out pretty good.

I also went to Shepherds Wool and Sheep Festival a couple weekends ago. I wanted to go to the beaded stitch marker class, but it was canceled at the last minute. I spent the class fee on this yarn instead. I picked it up at the
Blackberry Hills booth. I wanted it to make a shawl that I could leave draped over my couch.

It looks like it is three strands of laceweight yarn just barely plied together. Does anyone have any suggestions for an easy pattern?

I also picked up this beautiful basket to put my current WIP so it isn't laying around on my end table. I love the shape of it, and the blue in it is perfect.

I have a couple more projects that I have started, but I haven't taken pictures of yet. That should be part of my relaxing that I do this weekend! I hope everyone has a fun and safe Memorial Weekend.

  1. I didn't know you were going to the Shepherds Festival! I like the yarn you bought.

  2. Hi Rebecca!
    I meant to tell you at our knitting at Caribou that I checked out your blog. You've done a great job; maybe I'll have you give me tips when it is time to set up the shop blog.
    Have a safe weekend and we'll see you the at the following meetup at Caribou. (the hand towel is turning out great - you have inspired Tiffany to try one)
