It's snowinggggggg

i love it.

So today we got U-verse (instead of cable) and the guys were here for literally HOURS. Since the TV and internet could/would be down for any period during that time, I decided to do projects. I cleaned all the stray wool and alpaca out of the drum carder thingies. Then I dyed the Border Leicester lamb I had washed up for my next sweater!

Oh and did I mention that yesterday i washed a charcoal alpaca fleece? I did.

My kitchen table right now.


I'm going to blend the raspberry, teal and blue for my next sweater. Yes, I am blending crazy. Don't read the Ashford book of carding or you will be blending crazy too.

I also did go ahead and take a photo of the yarn for the Chief's next sweater. The color of the singles in the last post is closer, but I couldn't quite get it right by fixing the exposure. Kinda weird since I used sunlight, but whatever.

I am excited to work with it, but I won't be able to until I finish this:

My B-Side Cardigan! woo hoo! I'm using the Knitpicks City Tweed and I love it. I'm almost done with the body now. It is a super quick knit (and yes I did screw up the cable but no one will know unless they stare at my left boob and I will punch them if they do that.

Oh yeah, and I've been working on a pair of socks too. It's the Boyfriend Sock pattern and I'm using Knitpicks Essential Tweed for those. Hopefully I'll make some progress coming up here soon!


  1. DUDE. Now I need to finish my B-side.

  2. Love!

    You have gotten me hooked on alpaca, missy!

    You're been crazy busy over there.


  3. :) Gorgeous stuff! And? You said left boob. *giggle*
