Henley in Progress
My current projects and future projects.
This is Judy Pascale's Garter Shawlette. A fun, quick knit in some French Hill Farm, French Twist yarn (I completely missed their booth at the festival this year).
I spent this a few hours this morning at MA Sheep and Wool and then stopped at WEBS on the way home. I was home by 2pm or so. The quickest trip to the festival that I have ever made. It was a nice day but a little windy. I spent almost all the cash I brought with me at the festival and used the plastic at WEBS. I visited and left some money at Ball and Skein, Foxfire Fiber, Green Moutain Spinnery and Spunky Eclectic. I'm sure their was at least one other but I can't remember the name. I had a plan for WEBS and mostly stuck to it with a few additions.
I came home to two online orders that I had placed. I had a credit card issue last week so I was glad to see that they made it here. The rest of the weekend is supposed to be nice and I just plan to sit and knit.
This is Mabel's scarf out of 1 1/4 skeins of Malabrigo Worsted in the Melilla color. A fun knit. Mine came out shorter than expected. The pattern repeat was to be about 4 inches square, mine was about 3 or 3.5. I ended up doing 17 repeats and plan to make a pair of mitts with the remainder of the skein. The yarn was lovely to knit with and the pattern was fun. I will probably make another for a gift next fall.
I spent today in Poughkeepsie, NY at a baby shower where I delivered the red baby sweater. I ended up going to the shower alone (co-workers backed out) though my parents went for the ride with me and ended up eating at the hotel and staying there. They had planned to go to local mall but the Hotel the shower was at was in the middle of town and they might not have been able to find there way back to me again. The mapquest directions got us to town but stunk at getting to the hotel. But, we are back home and I ended up seeing a small live deer on the Taconic on the way home. Made of for the 3 ones I saw that weren't so lucky.
I started an Eye of the Partridge shawl as shower knitting but never took it out of my purse. That's ok because the people I was seated with were very nice and I am very glad I went.
