The past weekend would have been hectic and exhausting and wonderful, but the in person Vermont Sheep and Wool Festival was cancelled and the Virtual version took its place. Instead, of driving nearly two hours each day, I set up the studio in the same way I’d set up my show booth, put my sign out at the end of the road and had a very very relaxed kind of weekend. The raw, rainy weather that has been stalled over the kingdom for the past week, never let up. It was good to be indoors.
I spent my studio time blocking a sweater, winding up all of the sock yarn I’d dyed last week and managed some knitting while chatting with a friend.
This is the third Love Notes, I’ve knitted. After wearing the first one all last winter, I hung it up in the display. It looks like new. That little bit of mohair and silk make all the difference. While the inventory is on display, I did a bit of shopping for myself. There’s a dark charcoal sweater in my future using this combination of yarn, one lace wt. silk mohair with a fingering merino. Warm and light as a feather!
