Nearing the Finish Line

We had a smattering of snow again yesterday but thankfully it is only a dusting and roads are still clear. It’s pretty chilly out today so I think I will wait until the afternoon for grocery shopping, which is why I have time to write this post this morning.

What you see here is the results of Friday’s dyeing. About half is a minor restock of my inventory and the rest is for the Bocce Shawl Kit.

This week I got to work on the winding of the mini skeins for the kit. I have one color all done and four more to go. I have the cover sheet for the pattern ready and the only detail to be finalized is how to package the kits.

Most importantly, to me anyway, is that I am sooo close to finishing the knitting of the booth sample Bocce Shawl! I am finished with the color sections and only have the border to knit. That’s only 12 rows and the bind off, so not much at all. I just love how it’s coming out and can’t wait to see it after it’s blocked.

I took this shot of Elijah on Friday when I was out working when he came out to play and observe wearing his big sister’s boots. It was so precious I couldn’t resist a picture. Smile

Well, blocked shawl pictures and more details on the kit will most likely be in the next post. Stay warm, spring is coming soon! Right?

  1. Gorgeous colors, what is the fiber and what dyes do you use?

    1. This is my Class Merino Superwash Sock yarn which is 100% washable Merino wool. I use Lanaset dyes.
