Here it is! The ends are all woven in, the armpits grafted, the tie done. There is absolutely nothing else to be done on this sweater, unless I block it, which seems rather pointless since it is mainly nylon. In fact, I feel a bit like Eliza Doolittle ready to burst into song about how I could have knit all night......wouldn't that be loverly???
Oohs and Ahhs are welcome!
I have some photos that I want to post....First the photos from Lambtown. First I have to say that I was not trying real hard to photog the show, and once I walked into the hall with the fiber vendors, I completely forgot about taking pics. Oh, and because I know that someone will ask, I am not sure of the breed of these sheep, but they are commercial or market sheep.
However, I do have a couple of nice photos of the shearing contest and Janet in front of an incroyable kite.
And finally, some may know that I am in the Dyer's Garden Along, but had some ...erm...delays in getting the garden in, as well as my herbicidal husband who killed most of my seedlings while I was in London in May. That said, the garden is going, and I did harvest some dyestuff from the garden recently and then freeze them.
From top left counterclockwise are: Amaranth, marigold, zinnia, coreopsis, and peeking out are some zucchini that are just going gangbusters so far.
Isn't the amaranth spectacular....notice that the new growth on the leaf is scarlet, and it darkens to a deep burgundy at the leaf tips.
