|Little Red in progress. I lengthened the sleeve a bit.|
Yesterday was our wedding anniversary--36 years! Jim had been car shopping for Ben and found a nice Honda, which we checked out on our way to the zoo. Jim took the day off and we enjoyed walking through the zoo. It was a nice, although hot, day. We were just in time for the bears to show off how they communicate with trainers. They are amazing animals and have mannerisms just like humans. I believe I got some good photos of them, but none to compare with the ones I took last year.
4.8.12 I now have the front band to finish today and I can hit the finish line for Little Red. Today is Spin-In at the shop, so I'll grab some fiber and sprint with the Handspun Heptahlon event. I may not finish all my projects, but it is good to have lofty goals--it is, after all, the Olympics!
Something fun to add...I scored a book at Half Price Bookstore recently. What made it even more interesting was the letter folded up in the front of the book. It must have been a sample, because it is an introduction letter. A fun find, and some classic patterns.
|I really love the sweater dress on the cover!|
I finished two events today, Handspun Heptathlon and Sweater Triathlon!
|Spinning with little Hortense there was overtwist in the|
singles, but it plied nice and balanced. I like the texture.
|Little Red is now finished! It was about 10 pm CST|
so the photo is dark even with the flash!
