Swatching

I worked on Mr. SockPixie's Moth Mittens last night, and then I knit a swatch with my newly spun red Shetland roving...Yum...I thought knitting the yarn would be bliss, and it definitely is.



My yarn is a little finer than the yarn called for in the pattern, and so I will be making some adjustments, but that's just part of the fun, isn't it?

I am off to finish the mittens. I might just be able to put in a few minutes of knitting before I teach French Conversation in the Brookline adult ed tonight. Tonight we are discussing campaign financing in France! There is nothing like the calming effect of knitting before discussing a hot topic like campaign financing!

Its been fun seeing your spinning results. Will you be offering new yarn anytime soon?

Dear Pendie,

Thanks you for your comment. Spinning is great fun. I have not been dyeing yarn lately. I am on an extended leave... but hope to be back soon.

The swatch looks beautiful. It is so much fun to come back everyday to see your progress. I love that you write so often now.

I love the way your red looks and it's going to be so vibrant and perfect for the floral vests.

The Pixie girls will be very, very happy with the end result!

Both the swatch and the mittens are gorgeous. He's really getting a lot of stuff lately isn't he?

Me too! Great seeing your updates, and wonderful work, even if it's only a swatch, but it's gorgeous. :o)
