I stayed up late again to see this flower open....it isn't ready yet!
It is like waiting for a pregnant pet to give birth.....
This morning I dug through the stash to find some fabrics to make this wall hanging. I am dreadfully short on pretty greys! I will be making a few alterations on the pattern so it will be a Sandhill Crane and not a Heron. Sure, I can do anything; I am a quilter!
When the sun came out today after looking like it was going to rain all morning but didn't, I laid the contents of the bag of fleece out on the sidewalk.
I have three different animal fleeces here.
The white is very coarse-maybe an older animal.
The dark grey is also very coarse but a few sections have some nice fiber.
The brown is the most promising; it is some very promising fiber.
I will be carding up some and giving it a test spin.
For now, it is back in the bag waiting for me!
(the cats thoroughly enjoyed the inspection-sniffing and rolling and trying to steal some locks! I had quite a time corralling them so I could do my own inspection!)
I cast on Entrelac baby blanket number two for this year; I am knitting this in acrylic yarn called Prism on number 7 needles. I cast on 100 stitches and then work 10 entrelac squares across the row with side triangles at each side. I learned how to knit backwards on this pattern so I don't have to turn the work! A plus when the blanket grows in size!
I have a baby shower to attend in one month-can I get this done on time?! The race is on!
I caught Stormie inspecting this project-or maybe she is centering it for my picture!
She is normally very shy and runs when she sees a camera! I tried to wait for her to look up to me because she is cross-eyed and is so sweet! I got the other end instead....cats.
