In which I have much wool.

Today has been amazingly fun. Which is weird. Because I think I started the day out cranky. I have sewn buttons (from The Sitting Tree) onto a cardigan, knit, spun, washed wool, went for a walk, froliced in a field, possible found wild mullein, collapsed in a heap.

Reading: Sheepish. I've jumped on the bandwagon, indeed. Knitting: a doll's dress.

Finished: Shalom in merino and possum (with much modification - Ravelry notes here).

Today: Spinning and twist-setting!

Later in my Etsy shop: handspun, hand dyed yarn!

Me: tired. Short sentences preferred. Linking up with Ginny's Yarn Along.


  1. Your day sounds wonderful Melissa!

  2. Ooo, yummy yarn! and your Shalom is beautiful. I couldn't tell you the last time I knitted for myself. I should do that more often.

  3. Your Shalom is GORGEOUS! I love it! The colours are so warm and the sleeves are perfect. I plan to add sleeves to the next one I knit too. And a different coloured yoke. (My first one turne out boring.)

    To field frolicking...

  4. Your shalom is beautiful! I love the drape and the detail at the yoke!! Your mods are perfect :) Yay to having another knit completed!

  5. I echo the above -- your Shalom turned out gorgeous -- and that green yarn looks so delicious, it's positively... edible!

  6. you did it melissa, it's gorgeous! and it fits you perfect. congratulations (i'm so glad you didn't listen to me).
    and your yarn is awesome, love those colors. hi baby!

  7. glad your day turned out well your shalom looks lovely I'm dying to start some knitting but don't seem to be able to manage at the moment.
