I had some additional projects in the works over the last few months, but never got around to posting them. So here they are.
First, in May, I knit a cute little cotton sweater for Trixie’s new baby.
Then, in June, I knit a chemo cap for my uncle.
Pattern is Marsan Watchcap
by Staceyjoy Elkin, knit with Star Castle Fiber Mill
Alpaca Sport. I got the yarn at Alpacapalooza earlier this year, and it’s super soft. Star Castle is a small mill in Oregon, and the fiber came from two alpacas, Mystique and Willow, at Camp David Alpacas, also in Oregon. It’s kind of neat to be able to trace the fiber back to the animals from which it’s shorn.
I’ve been working on this scarf for half a year. It was my take-along project, kept in a small bag that I’d take out when I was stuck somewhere with free time. That didn’t happen very often, so progress was slow, and I just finished it in July.
I also joined my first yarn club earlier this year, and I finally made something with some of the yarn. It was a pretty quick project that took about a week of crocheting in the evenings. I just finished it last weekend.
Looks like I’ve been busy. Didn’t seem like it at the time, but I guess I was!
