September 15, 2015

Spent most of last week at a conference for work, and spent yesterday digging out from under a mountain of email and work-related tasks.  Finally able to breathe today, whew.

First, some knitting.  Last June (June 2014, that is), I was the high bidder on a skein of Wollmeise.  Which, for non-knitters, is sort of like scoring a Babe Ruth rookie card at a yard sale.  The stuff is hard to get in the US.  It also happens to be gorgeous.

The photos don’t remotely do justice to the colors, I am sorry to say.

However, it was a joy to knit with, and by adding another half-repeat to the pattern I was able to use nearly every bit of the skein.

To say I am pleased with the result is an understatement.
