I finished the Turn A Square. I like it. It’s cute. I had seen a finished version in my local yarn shop and it seemed huge, so I actually left out the increases and it worked out well. I like the square top.
This past Saturday, I wound the unwound skeins of my teeny-tiny stash. I’m glad my mom has a yarn swift. It really turns out a nice ball of yarn. I have two skeins of lovely Koigu that I’m going to use for my next project; a pair of Turkish Bed Socks. This pattern is a few years old, but I have wanted try knitting them for a while.
The ducklings and I tried our hands at using modeling clay yesterday. We enjoyed the medium very much, but as our pieces dry they seem to be breaking very easily. That is a little disappointing. I am getting more and more use out of Learning about the World through Modeling by Arthur Auer. I’m glad I have it as a reference.
Thanks for dropping by the pond today! I look forward to seeing what other projects abound.
