Yarn Along: Cables and Chickens
We've been pretty sick for the last few weeks and are just beginning to get back on our feet. I read quite a few short things, my favorite of which was Love Among Chickens: A Story of the Haps and Mishaps on an English Chicken Farm by PG Wodehouse. It was very funny and after reading some darker things, I needed funny!
While I was sick, I mostly worked on my scrap afghan. Then I started in on designing and making some cable hand warmers. I'm trying to knit my stash down and that yarn was just calling to me. I had the cable itch and needed a gift so I did some design work. It was wonderful and the yarn is proving to be so relaxing to knit with.
If there is enough yarn left, I plan on making a matching tam following Ann Budd's pattern. I have never made a tam before, and I'd love to, so here's hoping that the yarn holds out!
