I probably should have started with the “best of”, but I had Felix seconds from the cleanup shearing a couple of weeks ago sitting around in the laundry room, so I thought I’d get them washed up. It’s really nice wool, there was lots of little veg and grit, weathered and felted tips, and scurf. Ugh.
So I had to pull out the combs. It was a little short for combing, but most of it lashed on ok. Lots of waste left over (maybe use that for stuffing something), but what I did get drawn off t he combs is pretty sweet
And knitting-wise, I’ve retreated to my hat comfort zone
using some of the freshly dyed Esther wool from last week and leftover greens from the SuperGreen sweater.
there’s just something about that little circle motif that is very comforting to knit.
The colors in that hat are so cheerful – love it!
thanks Michelle- they are kind of “hotter” colors” than I usually work with but I think its coming out well-
