First of all - I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all of your prayers and warm notes on the last post.
I spent Sunday morning with Brie's family and friends at a church service where prayers and blessings were offered. There was not a dry eye anywhere. Her memorial service is tomorrow - details here.
I am honored that they asked me to take care of the flowers for the occasion. Brie shared my love of flowers. I brought a dozen or so pictures of flowers to her hosptial room for her to put on the walls so she could have a garden in her room.
I've been having a hard time focusing on anything for very long lately - but I have been knitting and spinning.
I got 2lbs of roving at MD Sheep and Wool to make a handspun sweater.... I finally spun up and soaked my first batch.
I just love the warm natural brown of this yarn.
I can't wait to spin some more.
I also spun up other Loop batt. This was fun to spin!
I love all the little bits of color.
I also joined Loop's Batt of the month club. Next month's theme is butterflies. Steph sent us all pictures of butterflies and we had to chose the one we like best. I chose a Monarch butterfly. I can't wait to see how she interprets it in fiber!
And guess what! My Merletto Mitts are the subject of a June Knit-a-long on Ravelry!
The Fingerless Glove Fanatics group is knitting them. There are lots of great looking mitts being knit over there - go check it out!
I couldn't just sit and watch - I of course started up again on another pair. I gave the originals to Jolene - so I need some for myself!
I'm also still knitting the Printed Silk Cardigan. The entire back is done and I love it! Also - I cast on for a new shawl - the Adamas Shawl. It's all Sarah's fault. No pictures yet - but soon! This is going to be a quicky!
