What a week it was last week! This week is busy as well, and knitting truly helps keep my sane in the midst of it all. I’m almost done with the first sleeve of my Tegna and can hardly believe I might be able to block it and have it ready to wear this week! Woohoo!!! In the meantime, I cast on for Philippas birthday sweater, another Sunday sweater (pattern by Ginny) with my hand dyed yarn (dyed with avocados). I will share more about this yarn soon, if and when I get a chance to shoot out another post. In the meantime, it is the squidgiest wool and I had no idea how much satisfaction and joy it would bring me to knit with yarn I’ve dyed myself! It makes me even more excited to see the finished product. I plan to knit all of the girls a “sunday sweater,” having already finished wren’s (except for buttons! gah!). Philippa and Phoebe will both get one as their birthday sweater with the yarn I’ve dyed myself. I’ve also ordered yarn for Noah’s birthday sweater and now I have more knitting ahead than I can probably finish in time, but I will try. Kid sweaters sometimes go really quickly for me and I’m hoping I’ve started early enough to accomplish them.
ALSO… sorry for the different format of the photo. Tragically, I dropped my DSLR camera last week while on a hike and I believe it is toast. I am hoping to drop it off at a repair shop soon to find out details because I won’t be able to do much of my usual blogging, family pictures, and also the (very) part time work I do taking photos for my husband/dad’s work website. 😦 😦 😦 Very sad.
I’m still reading Home Education (affiliate link). Enjoying it but needing a fiction book soon methinks.
