So, we are joining in with the Yarning Along with Ginny and Tami's Amis' Work in Progress and Ambassador Crochet for the first time in ages...and I am happy to be coming back.
At the moment, I am working with some natural tone wool yarn for use in making a cardigan. I am hoping to make it similar to the one the I made my daughter in the winter...one which is still in her closet, folded and waiting for use.
This is a project that I am only using to hold time as I await the real prize. The prize which is beautifully dyed wool from sheep at a farm that my friend manages with her family. Never before have I been about to have any connection to the fiber I use, and this, I am cherishing.
As I have blogged in the past, my friend is Katie from West Bay Farm in Maine. I would encourage anyone looking to support a small business to give her wool a try. They don't have a fully working website for yarn sales, but if you visit their FaceBook website and send her a message, she would love to chat. She does some dyeing ahead of time, but enjoys custom orders. At the moment, I am eagerly awaiting an order of two skeins of a green and purple color blend which will be crocheted into a lacy shawl. In the picture above in a scarf done in her aqua and purple color blend.
As for the literary side of this blog...well, I am at a bit of a stand still. I am back to the stage of re-reading old favorites...currently being, well....the Twilight series. Yes, I know. Crazy. I just haven't found any thing else that I feel like losing myself in at the moment. I would, however, love some suggestions. What are you reading? Any good story lines out there?
