Hi there! It’s been an extremely busy summer. I feel like I’ve been in the car for most of it shuttling the boy here there and everywhere. This week is Circus camp. To say that I am sick of being in the car would be an understatement and what is happening on Saturday, many, many hours in the car as we head to Cape Cod for a much needed vacation.
So, what to pack for car knitting???? This is the great dilemma. My current project involves a rather large chart, lace and beads, not exactly car friendly, I’ve already tried that.
I really didn’t feel like doing another shawl or a hat or mittens or miles of garter stitch. I was texting back and forth last night with my friend Sue and she asked a very important question, what size project do you want? That was the exact question I needed. I looked through all my patterns and decided on Nash. It’s a scarf with a lacy feel and in a DK weight yarn. I have DK yarn left over from something with cashmere and it’s in a pot right now getting happy in it’s dye bath. Yep, last minute mad dash to the dye pot. For a dyer I would think this is typical.
I have tons more to share but not enough time to do so at the moment.
I will share a little secret, keep your eye on Jimmy Beans Wool! Something wonderful will be going on there soon!
In case you like Kevin Bacon, here is a little eye candy for you!
