Today I need to complete a special order of three pairs of wrist warmers, and a newborn hat. Two pairs of the wrist warmers will be made with the black and natural yarn (black is Merino, natural is 80% Polwarth / 15% silk), one orange and brown. The newsboy style hat will have two bands to choose from, (pink and blue), as we don’t know the sex of the child yet! Photos of completed items to follow. Thought it might be fun to see the yarn first.
Soon as the above are completed, I’ll begin spinning extreme thick-n-thin yarn for the trunk show at Phebie’s Needlearts – a week from tomorrow!! Phebie offers the yarn as a scarf kit, so I’ll be dying coordinating colors of silk ribbon to add to the fringe.
Feels strange knowing Village Fest is tonight and I won’t be there… Glad to have lots to keep me busy, and a week to go before I have to be ready!
