Episode 66: Daffodils and Crocuses and Penguins, Oh My!

Hello from a distinctly un-Springlike Cheshire Plain… brrr!

On The Needles

I’ve completed the waist decreases on Adrift, but I’ve decided to lengthen it and add some complimentary increases. Ravelry details of my project are here. I’ve also knit and crocheted some bunting triangles for the Guild’s bunting, using the Sheepfold Clotted Cream I dyed a year ago.

Yesterday I cast on a Tomten by Elizabeth Zimmerman for a new arrival in the family.

Oh the Joy!

No progress pictures, but I have spun some more purple BFL on the Traddy and more green merino/silk blend on the Joy. The Traddy’s had a good scrub down and wax too.
