Well, Friday just slipped right by now didn't it? Errands of the gardening kind kept me busy. I am so itching to get my fingers in the dirt, but the last frost date in this area is around May 18 which kind of precludes planting. But I did plant. I got some asparagus roots in the ground and I think they will be all right.
I was able to do a photo shoot of the on and off needle knitting projects. First up is the finished object.
Yarn: Araucania Atacama handpainted 100% alpaca knitted together with a fingering weight brown wool
Needle: can't remember the size.
This turned out so warm and comfy. I love the drape and I have a feeling this will be my go-to vest.

Yarn: S.R. Kertzer On Your Toes sock yarn
Needles: US2 circs
These just make my happy to look at them!
Yarn: Froehlich Wolle Bergschaf
What can I say? I hated this pattern. The neckline was way too wide and the sleeves were going to be too tight. Shortly after this photo, the whole thing was frogged and the yarn rewound into balls. One good thing, after knitting a new gauge swatch I have cast on a new sweater using this bulky yarn. It is MY version of #73.
