Knitting aside, I’ve been busy as a bee hive this summer. Mostly running down off of the mountain every day to water or weed or do some laborious task associated with home-improvement (of another house). Only this morning I was scrubbing a bathroom of tile & grout for hours with bleach, oh joy. Not. Feeling rather tired in fact, and looking forward to Autumn with a great yearning, but it is … sigh … only the end of July.
Anyway, aside from the ‘town’ house project and my trying to keep the garden up here on the mountain alive through the hottest months of a Northern Californian summer, I am getting a little knitting done in spite of it all.
I am now done & dusted with Wee Hearts Tam, in Isager Tweed Moss & Pink ( from last post’s mention of pattern merge). Not bad I think. But I am thinking I am now ready to test this design for a full-on Fair Isle approach, with many color changes, and warm foreground colors play against cool background colors sort of thing. I’ve been studying the great Fair Isle designers, ready to make simple Wee Hearts sparkle with about seven different colors of Hebridean 2ply…
So thankful for my yarn stash, I am ready with what I already have, and off I go, on a major color adventure!
Your pink and green tam is gorgeous. I am looking forward to seeing the colourful hat, it sounds lovely.
Thanks Wendy, I am going to try to get a Skier & Fingerless Mitts out of my stash…. :: crossed fingers ::
Chookie, you have outdone yourself this time. That is stunning! X
Hi Kelly! Hey, thank you, just my simple Wee Hearts with a little attention given, and its blooming. 🙂 I must reply to your last letter ~~ very soon! xx
You are refining that pattern so beautifully. Just Gorgeous.
Thanks Sorcha, you know, that’s exactly what I’m doing~~ ‘developing’ the design. 🙂 xx
