Blogless Sara came over on Saturday. We had big plans to work on about 2,517 different craft projects because we're optimists that way. What we actually did was muse over her sweater that we still need to steek and dye some roving. I'd like to try knitting with roving and then felting the product, so I dyed with that in mind. I've been spinning the roving that my nephew and I dyed over the summer, and I like the way it looks quite a bit. I wonder if I'll like this stuff knitted.
I had a fortunate day on Sunday. Of course seeing the Yarn Harlot was great, but I also won a doorprize--a scarf pattern and a skein of yarn.
Even better, though, I was the recipient of a lovely gift from my friend Cae. She knit a gorgeous shawl this summer and made an edging out of one of the Nicki Epstein books. She decided to put the edging on only two sides of the shawl, and look what she did with the extra edging.
It's a rainy gray day here. I'm going to take a little nap before I start my Treadmill Journal writing. I have Friday off from work, so I'm looking forward to the long weekend. I hope to set aside some time to start my holiday crafting. What are you making for your gift list?
