Some time ago, Tina inquired about having me knit a vest for her husband, The Shepherd.
She spent a good part of the last year spinning the yarn of wool from two of their shetlands- and I just got the goods yesterday.
So today, I am making a start.
She sent along a sweater vest that fits him well, that I can use for sizing, and a pattern to work from for the general style.
It’s swatching out at just under 4 stitches per inch on size 7s. And away we go!
In other news, Fleece De-stashing is underway.
This weeks 3 oz-
And I wanted to mention that the WSU Country living Expo is coming up at the end of he month.
Over 135 classes to choose from this year, and a great lunch to boot! Check out the offerings at http://skagit.wsu.edu/CountryLivingExpo/
(I’ll be doing classes on Selecting Fleeces for Spinning, Wool Processing, and KoolAid dyeing.)
Have a great week!
