Today, was, in fact, the first day we had snow here where I live. Other parts of the state, and of New England, have had snow before today, but this was the first day we got snow where I live.
As for other things go on…
I’m still searching for a job (had some interviews but nothing panned out), but I’m eternally hopeful!
On the knitting front… well, there’s been less knitting and more weaving.
I had my actual weaving class on my birthday and this scarf:
Was the result. The pattern is called ‘houndstooth’. Don’t ask me where the name comes from, I have NO idea!
I’ve been working on the stripes of my Rockefeller, but they are officially “the stripes that never end” now and it’s going to take me a long time to work my way through them.
This past weekend, Kate of A Hundred Ravens had an open studio. She had all of her yarn out and available to buy, but I also got to chat with people, some who I knew and some who I didn’t know. I had a blast though and I even got a custom dyed hank!
It’s based off of the wing of a Monarch Butterfly and I love it. It isn’t Halloween-y at all! Kate actually did two skeins but she kept one. I’m thinking a Sockhead Hat would be the perfect project for this so that it would show off the colors nicely and still be practical, and I do love the sockhead hat that I have already…
As for weaving, well I just got another scarf going. The warp is a night light gray, and the weft is going to be striped thusly:
The yarn is, again, from Kate at A Hundred Ravens. The gray is called Mithlond and the mini-skeins is her Doctor Who mini set. I can’t wait to see how the stripes turn out!
