Hello again, everyone ~ now that I'm looking forward to Wednesdays and our weekly visits, they seem to be upon me before I know it. I'm slowly savoring my reread of Angle of Repose ~ I'm enjoying it immensely more the second time through and am taking my time to feel all the nuances of Stegner's writing. He's brilliant.
I made some good progress on my Coda sweater (link here) but didn't think to take any pictures. I'm getting close to where you divide for the armholes which is exciting. I caved in and cast on yet another project when Kate Davies released her newest design this week. It's 'A Hap for Harriet' (link here) and I'm finding it very hard to put down. It's a really intuitive knit and I rarely have to look at the pattern now that I have a few chart repeats under my belt. The yarn is a bit of a mystery ~ my friend Kelly got it from her local spinner's guild sale and sent it to me (thanks again, Kelly!). It's a wool/silk blend but I have a feeling there's a smidgen of nylon in it since it's impossible to break. There was no tag with it so this pattern is perfect since it's all based on percentages and you can use whatever yarn you have and make it work. Very fun!!
I managed to hit a few more new blogs this week and enjoyed seeing how crafty some of you are. I'm hoping to visit a few more this week that I haven't yet!
One more thing ~ I've noticed many of you are gardeners and I'm hoping to solve a mystery. We have this gorgeous bush in our yard that gets these huge bigger-than-a-handful poms of delicate white flowers in the spring and I can't seem to find anything similar online to identify it. If anyone knows what this is, please let me know ~ I'd love to plant a few more if I can figure it out!
Have a great day & see you all next week!
