Spectrum ...

Woohee! HooHa! and Hurray! The rainbow scarf is done. My goodness, that was a long knit. Fine yarn and small needles slows time down. It's been about a year since I bought the wool at the NY Sheep & Wool Festival.

To be fair, there were pauses before and after the time I spun it up, and then there was the interruption from the move. Oh, I don't care! It's done, and it was fun! And a fine result in my opinion.



In this view of being blocked the color gradations are clear. A beautiful dye job. When I have enough time (retirement?) I shall turn to the dye pot myself.


Since it's nice to have something on the needles, I'm currently making up some fingerless mitts. Quite the contrast to the scarf: These things knit up in no time. Can get a pair done in a few hours. The yarn is Noro.


In other news, tomorrow is the start of my new quilting class. Excited about that. Thursday I'll be heading to NYC for the monthly check-in and I'll be driving back Friday night.

Today I bought paint for my bedroom and plan to work on it next week. Golly, that will just about wrap up the paint works for the time being! Happy, happy! :)
