Here's the progress pics, coming up on two whole repeats of the motif.
And a little closer view
These colors are a little hard to accurately capture on the camera. I tried messing around in Photoshop to make them read more like I see them, but never quite feel like it's working. Still, you can get an idea.
I've had a nasty cold this whole week, so I feel like I've been firing on half a cylinder. Several days I took long naps while the kids were at school. I hope I'm nearing the end of it. I haven't been up to grocery shopping or meal planning, so our diet has been interesting this week.
On Monday, I took the spinning wheel and drop spindle in to show the kindergarteners. They really paid attention and and were very interested. A couple kids said that they know someone who spins. One girl said that she wants to try. Planted that seed early! I found Charlie Needs a Cloak in the school library and read that to them, too. It's so hard for kids to understand just how long it took to make clothes before the Industrial Revolution.
This morning I went to Last Saturday Knitting. It was all new faces since I was last there, way back in May. Jenny and Terri moved away over the summer, and Linda probably gave up on me, after I was away for so many months in a row. With a little luck, we'll be able to get a new group of regulars for a while.
