Knitting for The Coop (our farm store) is on full force over here.
Here are some hats that I have knitted up that will be for sale this fall and winter.
I also casted on a "Just enough ruffle scarf" with our Farm Yarn
from Ox. It's a 70% Ox (alpaca) 30% grape purple merino.
So nice to work with!!!
I wanted something special to knit with this yarn. With dark colors, I always fear that detail knitting will be lost. So I decided to go back through patterns I had knitted in the past and I remembered this great scarf. When I first started knitting, I made these. They're really pretty, with just enough ruffle to make it fun, light around the neck and a perfect project to show off Ox's yarn.
The picture doesn't do it justice. It's really a pretty yarn.
Here's a picture of Ox. He is a black alpaca but looks lighter around the face because the sun bleaches the tips of his fleece. Natural highlights!
Reading The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. Wow! Amazing story.
Joining in with Ginny's weekly yarn along and the other knitters out there!
