Hello! It seems like an age, doesn’t it? I was super busy after I finished the blanket. I was concentrating on the sweater I’ve been making for Thom. I have most of the body done now, minus the sleeves and collar, but I found that I likely need another ball of yarn. This thing eats yarn for breakfast! So I’m back to spinning a last bobbin of 3-ply Coopworth yarn - #8! Whew. That will bring the total up to nearly 2 lbs. of wool. Warm sweater! Hope he will still get a chance to wear it when it’s finally done.
The other news I have is that we’re plotting another trip in the old VW Westie. South to California and Nevada to get some sunshine and warmth! You can’t blame us. It’s rained nearly every day since forever around here. However we need to be back before I have to start planting seedlings in mid-March so we’re leaving next week. Whee! Much packing still to do. No idea how often I’ll be able to post from the road since we’ll be mostly thoroughly bushed. My sister is staying here while we’re away so the house won’t be neglected.
So here’s the test. Still having trouble posting photos so trying a differnt method. You may get 2 posts. Hopefully one will have a picture of the kale I picked from my garden.
