Turned into this yarn
It's not the BEST knitting ever - its really free- form - which if you know anything about me, that's how I roll.
The photos do NOT show how great the coconut buttons look on this scarf. It's like they were made for it. I paid more for those 2 buttons than I've ever paid for buttons before - but they are PERFECT! So I ahd to have them.
This yarn spoke to me - it told me it had to be this neck warmer. I started to try making a hat with it - in fact, I started a few times. But this yarn did not want to be a hat - it wanted to be a neck warmer - and boy, did it! I'm not the best model, and hubby isn't the best photographer. Even with a tri-pod, the photos came out a bit blurry. I used very high resolution and still, they came out blurry. I needed to use the timer, and I tried, but hubby asked why I wasn't asking him to help. So what is a woman to do? I let him help. :-)
This yarn is Polworth and silk blend. It's soft, it's warm, it's squishy and it's fun. Great fall colors too. I have GOT to learn to dye my own fiber now, so I can decide what colors I want! I can see this is going to be a very slippery slope for me! LOL
I didn't work on spinning today. I started reading a new book and I've gotten hooked on it. I tried making some buttons this morning from red air dry clay, and also from Shrinky Dink plastic. I didn't like the way the plastic ones were looking. The clay ones were ok but not dry yet and I wasn't sure they'd look nice enough for this scarf. Maybe for a future one. They are upstairs still drying. They take a couple of days to get really dry.
I'm trying to update my website, but it's not cooperating.
Time to take the pups out. Tomorrow I will post about our Saturday with Grand daughter. What a hoot that kid is! Poor thing wasn't too sure about me at first - it's been about a month since she's seen me, but when she saw her Pop Pop, she really didn't know what to do - she was really NOT sure of him at all. Poor Pop Pop was a bit disappointed, but he's the one that doesn't make the time to go visit..........what can I say? I want to squeeze that little one! I love her SO much!
Take care and thanks for stopping by
