I have found myself covered from head to toe the past week or so in varying combinations of wools with a little mohair thrown in for fun. Sometimes I forget this before I go out into the real world. Sometimes it is amusing to watch people’s faces when you explain that the hair is not from a cat, but from a sheep. The lady at the beauty supply place seemed startled when I told her all the little bottles I was purchasing were not for dying hair, but wool. It can be such a great conversation starter!
I have also been working on Diamante socks. I don’t have a photo yet, but they are about 3 inches long from the toe up. I am using a nice peach colored yarn. I might be keeping these ones for myself. My toes can get so cold durring the winter! I am a desert creature and I don’t deal with cold all that well, unless I have too. It will start with my toes, they will get cold and then I can feel the cold creeping up my legs. Then it hits me and I am shivering so hard my back hurts! I have tried having my husband sit on my feet when they start getting cold in an attempt to ward off the shivers, but usualy I have to jump in the shower and crank the hot water before I start feeling normal again. The worst is when it happens in the movie theatre when I forget my sweater.
I decided that this year I needed a pair of warm socks to wear around the house. I am hoping that this will keep the shivers away. I will let you guys know how it goes. It might be cold enough to wear them soon!
I also did another shop update today. Some wool blends, and since I don’t want this whole post to go without a picture, here is one of my favorite rovings so far.
