Not a lot going on this weekend. Saturday I spent the day doing things around the house and of course knitting. Mr Fix It spent part of Sunday at Top Of the Hill 3D Archery . Kent & Janet have become wonderful friends. They have such a beautiful farm and it makes a great day out to go visit them. Any time of the year is beautiful with the foliage & hills. The Archery course they set up is designed for all levels with a lot of fun targets.
I worked on a pair of custom longies A nice dense merino I dyed to a rainbow with gray trim & pocket. These will be on the way to Alaska to a Military Mama as soon as they are dry. I’m dyeing the wool for another pair for her & also a few hats & fingerless mitts for her children. I always worry I’ll get the colors right for customs but so far we’ve had a kind of mind meld across the miles that has worked!
Chocolate with Orchid trim Shorties are the start. They use traditional color combos but so many of the designs although beautiful, are not colors you would think to pair. I still have to get them listed to the Katidids Etsy shop…. I think something with olive next…..
I have another pair of shorties drying and a skirty on the needles now, no photo’s yet but maybe tomorrow.
Most of the snow has melted and everything looks dirty~that transitional time that is just yucky, you can tell the soils just itching to pop some green!
I think maybe I’ll start some seeds this week!
What have you been up to?
