Fred and the FO's
Fred wore his Aran sweater – finished for Christmas 2010 - spun from the wool of our Finnsheep to Endless Mountains and also to Rhinebeck and got lots of compliments on it - - and of course there are admirers here at home too.
I got off to a bad start with my first overshot weaving, but with thicker yarn - - probably too thick - - for the pattern, things are moving along again. Still having trouble with selvedges, but that is hopefully something one gets with enough practice.
The first (of two) After Hours Shawl is finished. After making multiple mistakes because the cables I had weren’t long enough for me to “read” the pattern, I got the link-thingies from Knitpicks to join two long cables. It did seem awkward to knit lace on such large needles, but eventually I got in the swing of it.
