Number 14 will be joined together soon. This week Arne and Carlos are here in my general vicinity teaching classes and giving lectures at a LYS but I couldn't get a spot in any of it. By the time I saw the post everything was sold out. I even got on the waiting list but....nope. I'll have to continue my fangirl journey through YouTube and working on their little Christmas sweaters. So close...but so far away, sigh.
On a happier note, Chestnut is finally past its difficult stage. I just started the first pattern row. It's been a very long time coming.
I've got two more rows to do and BonAmie wil have completed it's first pattern cycle. Now I won't have to worry over picking colors and ripping out ones I don't like. From here on in this will be it. I'll just repeat the chart over and over until I get the length I want.
It doesn't look like it but the Musselburgh hat got a few more inches on it when we went for our grocery pick up. There's still a long way to go. You knit the hat and lining all in one and then stuff it inside itself.
On that grocery trip I managed to score a quart of fresh goat's milk for making soap with. I usually use the powder form but when I went to order it I almost fell off my chair from the price of it. I don't know what's going on with the goat's but I'm sure glad I don't need much of this stuff or need it very often. I am also happy to say the new lye is here so as soon as I can get The Mister to busy himself elsewhere, I'm back in business.
