It's DONE!! I've cast-off MS3, now I just need to block it! I guess now I need to get some blocking wires....something I've been putting off!
Since I've photographed the other end I thought I'd show you what the "wing" looks like...pretty huh?
Feels good to have a FO, even if it isn't blocked yet!
Something I haven't blogged about is a project I've been working on...I know you've seen it on other blogs before. Here...Here...Here...and Here, I know there are so many more, just Google Tulip Baby Sweater!
I love the pattern...the colors and the endless combinations that can be obtained by using left over yarn, and since we are going to have some new additions to our family, I bought the pattern. Ravelry has helped too...in the process of logging my stash I uncovered some of this yarn which got those creative juices flowing.
A couple years ago I had a natural dyeing demonstration at Explore Park using Indigo, Osage Orange bark & Red Madder root, if necessary click on the picture to enlarge. I Kool-Aid dyed a couple skeins using cherry & grape in an attempt to get a full color range. I am going to ask for your help here...The pattern shows 8 colors, since you can really create your own color combination, do you think I need to add another color or 2? Or leave it at 6 colors for my sweater? I'm okay with going with what I have, I just need some additional input to convince myself.
Keep my step-daughter in your thoughts and prayers...she's not due until Sept 23rd, her blood pressure has gone up, she started contracting on Monday which they were able to stop but she's on complete bed rest! We need a couple more weeks for the baby's lungs to mature, I feel confident that she'll make it because they haven't started giving her steroids for the baby. But you just never know what may happen. Help us send positive thoughts her way! The ultrasound she had on Thursday showed that the baby already weighs over 5lbs!
I guess I'd better get started on the baby sweater!?!?!?!
Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!
