Fingerless glove

looking for what's missing... I'm a knitting, spinning, mother of teenagers with a big dog, a small cat, minus the lovely rabbit Meliflua.

Right now I'm listening to "An Irish Country Village" by Patrick Taylor, reading "Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake" by Anna Quindlen and knitting Wisconsin Wintersocks. And casting off the lace shawl I've been working on since I last posted.

Wookie Wool

When I saw this photo of Cass taken on a recent shopping excursion (they only got kicked out of two stores...), I thought, "How would Wookie wool spin?" I think it would make good rug yarn.


The cat bed I've been working on has gone through the first pass of felting (not yet ready for its photo shoot) so I'm knitting a dishcloth (the knitting equivalent of potato chips) while I'm between knitting projects. That doesn't count the UFOs and I only have four of those. A lacy purple & green mohair scarf that I've grown to dislike, a pair of socks and an autumn-colored shawl I've posted about, and a Fair Isle hat that's pre-blog. ) I may pick up the socks, or I may knit a blaze orange cowboy hat from this pattern at High Country Knitting. What do you think?

I checked the high country knitting site. Loved the knit and felted cowboy hat. Can't you just picture it in verigated shades of red?

Check out hiddenvalleyfarmwoolenmill.com. It's a sheep farm here in WI not too far from Jean's. Looks interesting.

Gee, do ya think smf might be hinting about getting a cowboy hat for Christmas?

It's a lovely picture of you. But then, they all are. I'm sure that's why nobody commented. ;)
