My Milarrochy Tweed yarn arrived and I started my hat!
Did I swatch? No. I got so strung out worrying about how to use the colors and coloring charts, and I was so excited about the yarn, I lost my patience and just started knitting!
It’s ok. I’m usually a pretty on-gauge knitter. Plus, I can always rip it out.
It’s a lovely yarn. It feels good and has a really nice sheen. I’m in love with the red color, Campion. I knew I would be.
Also the Haven Herbs launch party was today! This is the thing I was talking about that I didn’t feel I could talk about yet because it wasn’t official. But it is now!
It’s a woman-owned worker-owned herbal cooperative. We make and sell small batch, sustainable, bio-regional herbal preparations. I’m still with the fair trade organization, but this is a “side gig” that is also close to my heart. Check out our FAQ if you are curious.
We have a Go Fund Me if you would like to help us get off the ground!Each donation level includes a reward so you get a little something.
So, yes, this additional endeavor cuts into my knitting time, but I think it’s worth it. 😉
