August's Miss Wisdom is coming along slowly. She was a bear to do as her fleece was made up of a rather complicated pattern-at least for me. It doesn't take much to confuse me these days. Counting seems to be a skill that's slowly fading away.
My adventure with crewel has been hit or miss. It's been fun learning the new stitches but working with that dried out vintage yarn has not been fun. It's splitty which makes all the stitches look pretty wonky. I doubt at this stage I could make nice regular stitches anyway so I won't complain too much. I'll just carry on with this practice piece that's made up of mostly chain stitches at this point.
One of you nice readers sent me the link to this project kit that just arrived. It's the knitting mouse I've been looking for. Mercifully you only have to stitch in her apron and her shawl. The rest is printed on. The yarn looks much nicer than the yarn in the leaf kit so I'm looking forward to tackling this as soon as I get more practice on those blankety blank leaves.
