Well, I finally finished the scarf last Friday and washed it yesterday. Isn't it beautiful! It's a lovely Staggard Rib Scarf off a free pattern I got on Ravelry.
Since I didn't get it done in time for the open house I have been debating what to do with it. Pretty much everyone said that I should keep it because it was my first hand spun from my herd....I think I might. It is definitely beautiful...I can't see a family member wearing it but it would match my coat. I wish I was a faster knitter so I could have given it away but...it wasn't in the cards.
KnitWithSnot suggested that I enter something that Sister Bear had been making. She hasn't been spinning long but we had plied together what she had completed so we tagged it and bagged it and now my daughter has officially entered her spinning into a contest.
Now if only I could look that cute while sitting at the wheel. So what did she create?
Well a Sassy little yarn, of course!
She is also getting upset because I haven't taught her to knit. I have the needles and the yarn all set but every time I ask her if she's ready to learn she decides she would rather do something else. Then at bed time she tells me that I need to teach her, "Like Now! Mom!"
Goodness, where did that attitude come from?
Hey, I guess that all artists, even fiber artists, get temperamental. I will teach her and she will be super amazing because that's my little girl.
So those are the fun fiber projects going on. I did end up entering my scarf in the women's knitting competition. Wonder Why? Why not!
