Hi all –
I’m a little pressed for time today so I thought I’d just give you a quick update on how all the various projects are coming. I’ll admit, a bit sheepishly (pun intended) that this is as much for my own benefit as yours – since having to report the progress on my projects keeps me motivated to get them finished.
First off, meet the lovely Lady Jane, the lamb whose fleece went into the scouring process a couple of days ago. I’ve only gotten half of it washed at the moment, but I am delighted with the texture of her wool as well as the combination of black, brown and grey that she has. This is going to make some lovely yarn.
Here it is about to be washed:
Here it is drying. I love how this has the combination of brown, black and grey.
The hand quilting project is coming along nicely too. I have two rows of quilting left before I can bind it and it will be finished!
And last, but certainly not least, the baby blanket. It is coming along nicely but so, I hear is the baby, so I need to keep moving forward on this. I have about 8 inches of knitting the pattern to go, then a couple of inches of edging. (Special thanks to my friend Jen who rescued me last night when I totally messed up the edging and could not figure out how to fix it. I was pretty frustrated but she is a genius).
And of course, a little gratuitious Westiness because after all, who doesn’t need more Westie in their life? In this case, Chloe, having a nap but not all that certain about this noisy camera thing.
Happy weekend everyone! I’m out a day early to celebrate my daughter’s college graduation. YAY! See you next week!
