Not even trying…

Shearling_1 Yup, I’m not even trying to finish the shearling sweater before I fly east for Maryland on Thursday night.  Not gonna do it…There’s too much to get done and I don’t want to rush it and do a half assed job finishing up this sweater.  As compensation for an actual FO, I’ve delicately positioned the pieces together in a feng shui type of arrangement for an arty portrait.  Doesn’t it look like it’s going to be cute?  I think so.  Of course, it was about 80 degrees today, so I don’t know when I’ll be able to wear it.  Well, as problems go, it’s not too horrible.Ash

I’ve become intrigued with mohair in recent  days.  I know, I’m the founder of the "I Hate Mohair" fundamentalist sect, but this Madil Kid Seta that I koolaid dyed for my super skinny color block scarf has turned my head by it’s incredible softness.  I surfed across some more of this stuff on sale and bought a few skeins in dusty pink to make this little Rowan number from Rowan 36.  It’s kind of retro-70’s looking and will be very fun in pink.  I plan on finishing the coordinating skinny scarf over the long Maryland weekend since it’s the perfect mindless take-along project.  Maybe I’ll find some of those lucite clear plastic platforms that I remember from my childhood and I’ll be one rockin’ 70s momma.  Because you know, one of Claudia and my Maryland rituals is the DSW shopping in Columbia.  It’s not a Sheep and Wool until we shop for shoes!  Now go over to her site and donate to her MS ride…mach schnell!

  1. Shearling, you will be VERY cute. Yes, even if you didn’t get a trip to MS&W.
    That Rowan top is one of my favorite things from that particular mag. So floaty! So gauzy! I love the drawstring closure.
    Hm…maybe I’ll knit it with ya!

  2. Hmmm sheep and shoes — hard to have a problem with that combination. A shame we’ll be missing the shearing sweater in Maryland, though. But I can completely sympathize with dealing with a lot of finishing work!
