Remember this post? Well, the gal who gave me a discount on roving as well as a bunch of free rovings agreed to let me spin one up for her. It has been on the back burner as I left on vacation soon after I received the rovings and life has been a bit insane since then. I did finally start her 2 ply laceweight, and I am now more than halfway through. It should be done sometime this week so that it doesn’t conflict with the large conference I have to host here next week. I tell ya, this sanguine gryphon roving is just as gorgeous as it can be! Richly colored and very saturated, and the silk just makes it shine so much! I guess 35% silk will do that. This colorway is “Kate’s Beach” and I just happen to have 2 more in different colors left in my stash. This one though is truly gorgeous because of the coppery browns in it. I can’t wait to see it finished!
In knitting, I am working on my MS4, and it is going really well. I am currently on clue 3 and the part I am working on is lacking beads, so it is moving a bit quicker now. Keep in mind, as you see this, that I have 2 of these exactly the same. So though it might not look like that much, double it! I think I will be much more inspired to finish a symetrical stole if I do both halves at once. You know, because of my distraction problems.
I am particularly fascinated by the scalloped edges. I’ve never done them before and I can’t wait to see what they will look like when I am blocking it. Also, any guesses on a theme???
