A New Year Begins

And Projects Happen

I've been knitting with color; no plans in advance just knit as I go with Cascade 220. I used a short row heel and it fits quite well. Nice bed socks.






















I've been scouring(cleaning) some shetland fleece, one handful at a time. On the right is a lock of the wool before cleaning. And on the left is a lock after soaking in hot water with Dawn dishwashing detergent(15 minutes), a plain water rinse/soak followed by another rinse with a glug of vinegar. Isn't the difference amazing!



















to be continued........

Happy New Year!!
