7 balls of wool crepe, nice chocolate color. I think these English yarns are from the 70s. It was so hot and humid I suppose nobody could bear the thought of winter wool.
and then, as I was chatting with the family they mentioned that they had just taken some linen back into the house, and I scored this fabulous, large linen cloth with wonderful cut work. I have not gone over it closely yet but it looks pretty good. Can't bear the thought if ironing it.
Do look at this blog from knitonthenet, a great post on intergenerational knitting. OK, OK, I did send them the photos. Funny I should pick up yarn this weekend....have not bought any for at least 4 months!! (take that back, 1 month)
A sweet mention from my artist friend Barbara Muir on her lively blog...she was the one who inspired me to blog and she also painted the portrait I use as an avatar.
