I have been knitting, but mostly the cone- of- silence variety. Here’s one project I finished that I can show, a shop model of a baby blanket pattern of mine, in Berroco Weekend. It’s a great acrylic -cotton blend, soft and pleasant to work with. It should be great for kid’s clothes.
I am a disciple of the fabulous She Shoots Sheep Shots school of photography, but perhaps not Gale’s most stellar student. I was taking a shot of the blanket, and thought to myself, WWGD? So you be the judge.
I’ve never liked those tulips, but this might change my mind. Just sticking the blanket in front of the tulips changed how the color showed up. Mysterious but fun. Seriously, if you get a chance to take one of Gale’s workshops on photographing your fiber, do it. We are hoping to lure her out to Minnesota again soon.
Why is it so difficult to have blue flowers in the summer? Other than bachelors buttons and delphiniums, all the flowers the catalogues call blue are really purple. I am open to suggestions for annuals or Zone 4 perennials. Hmmm…zone 4 might be the problem.
