Landfall

    Landfall by Veronik Avery found in Brooklyn Tweed winter 14   again, I had this tub of pin-drafted roving… it was calling to me “spin this you are going to love it!” however, I also loved the Landfall sweater and this roving would make perfect yarn for that garment… now I could spin 2600 yards but I wanted to wear this sweater before I turned another year older so I boxed it up and sent it back to the mill to be spun into a 2-ply worsted weight super delicious yarn! it’s 80% cvm wool with 20% gorgeous charcoal kid mohair and if you love it too soon there will be a fresh batch back from the mill and for sale on Etsy There...

for Bette

I had wanted to make the Ene Scarf for a long time. and I had this great pin-drafted roving made of CVM wool and angora . and then there were many long trips to doctors and the treatment center and then the hospital and this project kept me occupied while we waited… when the knitting was nearly complete – and everyone was back home – and the doctors were gone it was suddenly clear who this project was meant for… but the natural gray wasn’t right so I threw it in the dye pot… and dusky lavender was perfect! for Bette!...

jonalyn’s scarf

i have the best farm sitter ever! in june – just after school let’s out (in real life she’s a kindergarten teacher) jonalyn races from the the city to the country so she can spend a week doing farm chores. scooping poop, filling water tanks and overseeing a 100 head of livestock… she thinks she’s at a bed and breakfast…  how to repay her??? maybe with a little cvm wool from Lily, a little angora from Whiskers and a dollop of alpaca hand spun into 2-ply fingering and knit into a lacey, soft and warm scarf with just the perfect amount...
