Last week was my birthday and, as you may remember, I asked for only 1 thing: a motorized skein winder. Well, my parents came through big time.
Other than playing with my skeiner I've been working on a simple hat.
Farmhouse Yarns in Lumpy Bumpy in Grapes on the Vine on US size 9s. 2x2 rib with a nice cuff. Women's size.
I think I'm in love with this yarn. I absolutely adore the texture and it's all I can do to restrain myself from rushing to their website and ordering more. I bought this yarn eons ago when I had first started knitting from Wild Fibre in Savannah. I had the hardest time settling on what to make with this but I think a hat is just perfect. I have some Schaefer Yarns yarn that's been spun with a binding thread (I think that's what it's called) but I don't think it's thick and thin spun like this is. The texture should be similar though, which leads me to believe I will enjoy that yarn as well.
Also cast on for the second Ron Weazley Banana Holder Sock (a.k.a the Skew sock).
Summer Knitting Challenge. Which reminds me, I need to do a post about that. The more ambitious types can click the link above and read up on it for yourselves. The rest of you will be stuck waiting on me. In the meantime I'm going to start another hat.
