Just a quick update; life has been busy both at work and play. I'll only discuss the play. Gisela is coming along nicely.
That's the back, ready to go onto the stitch markers. I may actually finish this before Hawaii!
Here's my newest stash addition. Remember this post? The second blog I mentioned is Jessie's. She's not only a fun read, she sells beautiful stuff - and I finally have some! This is Addison "Real Vermonter" Roving in the Petunias colorway. I got the last one of Petunias but check it out - there's other wonderful fibery things in there. This is 60% Romney/Corriedale, 30% Mohair and 10% Alpaca - and all the animals are from Vermont! It's wonderful soft stuff with a pretty halo.
This is a closer look. Purty, huh? I can't wait to get spinning. I think this will be socks but I'm not sure - there's 6 ounces here, which on me would probably be enough for a pair of thigh-highs. Wouldn't that be sexy...
