it was a good month for my 30 day challenge of knit and purl and crochet too. indeed i did have my hands in the wool each and every day, some of which i have already posted about and a few other little things here and there;
first picnic of the year;
new choroi pentatonic flute – playing while Little M dances;
yes! to apple pie a la mode
loving my walks with Sarah Jean and friends at mosey and plod;
31 pops done;
i didn’t mean to but i stopped in at Maiwa the other day and picked up some organic cotton for a few simple seed stitch wash cloths. seed stitch was new for me, very simple and rhythmic to knit over coffee at the cafe. i love a project that i can toss in my tote and finish here and there in a day. i’m hoping there’s enough of each colorway to make a match and then if i’m still into it i might try and knit those Pakucho organic cottons too. my current wash cloths are due for replacement!
still need to block these to even out the stitches but i’ll wait until i’ve knit the others and block them all at once;
other ecologically sound projects on the to do list are both Abby’s reuseable hemp/cotton wipesand Natalie’s lavender skin toner. love those gals!
i don’t usually like to post so far in advance on a project and good thing i haven’t already because once upon a time this fisherman’s pullover was going to be for Little A and now it’s destined to be one for Little M. So far only 1 skein is wound and no pressure – i’ll see how smoothly the progress goes…
i’m not just daydreaming. i really am knitting – more misti alpaca caps (not sure what will become of that ball of lovely single strand soft merino yet);
the littlest A’s hat;
