Status Quo

Recently I was spotted knitting in the Bicentennial Park. It was a beautiful Saturday and we had a great time taking pictures as well.

And on the Blue Ridge Parkway

I stopped in Meadows of Dan at Greenberry House, a small Yarn/Fiber store. It is right off the Parkway on Hwy 58. Leslie, the owner, dyes and spins some of the yarns. She also carries other local yarns, wool, and fleeces in the store.

Progress report:
I decided to finish my Jo Sharp Rebecca.  The Aran Silk Tweed is  a wonderful yarn. The sweater is a perfect fit and I love the finished product.

Still waiting (week 5) to hear from the TKGA on level 2.

I started the Great American Aran Afghan. This afghan is knit in squares then pieced together. The squares are a lot of fun to knit. But I’ve found the pattern to be inconsistent. For instance, the whole pattern has a gauge of 19sts/4” yet each square calls for a specific needle…huh? ….The TKGA would have a field day with this one. I’m improvising as I go.
