Sunday, Claudia and I leave to spend a week at the John C. Campbell Folk School in North Carolina. We are taking a sheep-to-shawl class, taught by a friend from the spinning guild. I predict lots of laughter in addition to all the knitting and spinning. In preparation for lots of spinning, I had to empty some bobbins that have been languishing for far too long. Two hours of plying produced this.
- Cabled Baby Vest. This pattern is extremely well written, which makes it work up easy and fast. I'm planning on adding some booties and a little hat, too.
- Rowan Milk Cotton DK in "Jelly Baby" (the green) and "Bonfire Toffee" (the brown.) I'm not a fan of cotton, but this wasn't bad. It's extremely soft and you can see how nicely it holds the cables. And it's going to be perfect for a certain Arizona baby due to make his appearance in July.
