In case you didn’t know, this weekend in the US Open, one of the biggest events in golf. My father loves to watch golf, my sons love to watch golf, and golf is fantastic for knitting. Check it out: Yesterday afternoon I had 4 inches of leg done…. and now…..
Golf is just interesting enough to keep me sitting there, pins in hand, to see that next shot. And the next… And the next… And the next… But not so interesting that I can’t concentrate on a pattern or heel or gusset. Golf is great.
So Scandinavian Festival is tomorrow. I’ve had a pretty stressful week and didn’t get much sewing done. I’ll fudge the blouse and wear a brown skirt instead of green. No one will notice anyway. I’ve scouted out all the knit/wool/fiber vendors and I’m ready to go. But what about the spending cap??? That’s a harder question for any knitter….
I’d like to find a nostepinde since I wind all my wool by hand anyway. That seems like an appropriate accessory.
In other notes: I’ve been working on my handdye Tomten and I’m just not thrilled with it. It looks neat, but it’s just not pleasant to knit. The wool is so full of lanolin that it doesn’t move easily over the needles no matter how loosely I’m knitting. My hands and wrists were aching. I’m just not sure if it’s worth it. There must be some smaller project that would be less weight to push around with the hands.
I think my network/internet connection just fizzled. I’ll try to post this anyway, and come back with Festival pictures tomorrow!
