Now that we are over the hump of Summer Soltice (of which I did nothing special...I'm a bad witch, I am) it was a colder day today. Barely making it up into the 70's. Makes me kinda broody for wintery cold.
Several things I am gonna make in the commin months in prep for the cold.
- Thrummed Mittens
- Ear Flapped Hat and a regular 'ol hat. I haven't found anything particularly cool to knit just yet.
- My-so-called-scarf Scarf
Last winter was really cold and the hat I knit last year from my first spun yarn really didn't fit correctly...although it was superly warm. The yarn was overspun, tight, and a tad scratchy and it kept wanting to pop off my head kinda like a dandilion flower pops off if you thumb it just right. BWEEeee-plop! When I got my bike Spring 2007, the weather was on/off cold, and I could have used a nice warm scarf. I am actually thinking of knitting a double-wide thrummed scarf, then stitching the sides and ends together to enclose the thrums. That sounds cozier than cozy! Would make a damned warm blankie too! Another thing to add to the list of "Someday" knits. I bet Mum would love it I could only find a wool that she can tolerate. Note to self, get that damned Wing of the Moth scarf made out of the shetland for her to test on her skin!!!
I haven't knit in a while, but since I started dyeing and spinning more, now I am itchin to knit some. The cure for the knittin blah-blah's? Dyeing and spinning!
Until next time...
