Shepherd’s is milling it over

The good news is, the shawl came out worth every second of the ripping back and of the not knowing; I am very, very happy with it. It’s hard to believe I got that kind of length and width out of 82g worth of laceweight. (Anybody need a little extra white Fino for theirs?…)

The bad part, of course, is that I can’t show it yet.  All in good time.

And now that the lacy days of summer are over, I went looking for what to do next. After all, what’s the worsted thing that could happen, right?

I had a project in mind, and found, as I looked through my stash today, that I’ve been knitting so much lace for so long that I hadn’t noticed I was virtually out of any heavier weights.  It’s not that the wool had DK’d… It just got a little loopy.

Shepherd’s Wool puts out a new-to-me merino so soft one could go in-skein, and Purlescence tonight helped get me all wound up about it.

Nice stuff.  I am going to have a ball with it.

Sounds like you’re ready to take another project for a spin.

Enjoy the process, knit-less to say. 🙂

Aw… a cloud of lovely knitting would have been perfect this morning. Guess I’ll have to wait with everyone else.

I think your surgeon slipped and clipped your pun-inhibitor wiring during your last surgery. Whew!

Have fun bending that yarn to your will.

That’s a pretty color of Shepherd’s Wool. I’m pretty sure that’s the new line a LYS is carrying that was so nice to the touch…

Worsted? Very punny, very punny! That ball of yarn looks pretty peachy.

Fun –

This wine reminds me of myself: classic, medium-bodied, and full of chocolate.

But the yarn–bad puns aside–looks gorgeous. Maybe I should take some pink out of my stash . . .

You’re tickling my punny bone, keep it going.
