I started this beauty in late March not long after the vernal equinox thinking it would be a great way to push the warm weather to arrive faster, but after 15 inches of knitting I’ve needed to set it aside to knit some cutesy baby hats. All in cotton and in spring-y colors. It wasn’t hard to let this vest sit.
I chose a local wool from the Knox Fiber Festival I attended last fall. You call see the pictures here. I lost the labels which of course had the yardage and farm of origin on them. I do at least recall the wool came from the Angola area. Which is keeping me true to my blog name! If you happen to have any hints to the farm…. Please leave me a comment! I love to get in touch with the farmers and show them what I’m creating!
So any way – we have just endured the most rainy weekend after the most glorious week. I peeked inside a sand pail that was left outside since Friday, one of the bigger ones and it was easily seven inches filled! I know that’s not an official rain gauge, but I guess It’s time to bring out the vest again and get the spring weather ju-ju going again.
