It has been a time since I have knitted my first project. I think it turned out very well considering a few things. The entire project was knit from the back stitch.
This past week I completed Heather's Scarf. It turned out quite nice.
After a meeting today, I was talking with one of our Arkansas ladies that come up often to assist with one of our Colorado departments.
Mom and I were talking on the phone the other day.
She asked me if I ever made anything from the fleece of Bartholomew the Ram. You see, I had a ram when I was in 4-H and FFA that would win at the State Fair. He had several champion corriedale fleeces with one fleece being the Reserve Champion of the fair. Funny, I also showed him in the ram class and that judge placed him lower because of his fleece. Yes, the same exact year he produced the Reserve Champion fleece.
I proudly took my first knitting project to the Men’s group yesterday. I was a bit early, so I sat and worked on it a bit. I think it is coming along at a rather nice pace.
A while back, Joe-in-Wyoming recommended a shop in Casper that he frequents. Today, I went to that yarn shop he recommended. The Dancing Sheep Yarn and Fiber store is a very nice store.
Thanks to the advice of knitmanaic, I went directly to the two wools that I know are British and looked up where you can buy them. Then I started search for shops! Oh my, that worked quite well.
I have always wanted to purchase some UK wool (aka Yarn!). My expectation of the proper yarn shop was a bit lacking.
I'm about ready to crochet in public. Our plane to the UK has been delayed. I brought two projects along with me to do as space is a consideration. I don't have much in terms of carry-on room.
Yesterday, while flat on my back during a 30 minute wait in the exam room at the doctor's office, I was looking at the florescent lights, as there isn't much to review in the new room.
