Earthen Tweed

After doing about a pound of Earthen Tweeds for the shop, it killed me not to have some to play with. So I spun up a small sample:

And because it looked like it could be a spring field dotted with little flowers I had to take a close up

As I was knitting the swatch I kept fondling the BFL goodness. I need to make a sweater in this so the carder is about the be busy making me 24 ounces of this yumminess. Yes, I know I still have the handspun Aftur to finish and I have the Bianca yarn to finish… A girl can think ahead can’t she?

And while we’re on yummy. My herbs are sprouting well.

I know making seeds grow is nothing unusual but the dog got at them at one point and I wasn’t sure they’d come up at all. I’m very exciting they survive the severe thrashing at the hands of an over excited pup.

    very pretty amy–I thought it was a landscape shot!

    I myself am a semi-pro starter. Finisher? Nope. Not me. I want to be one of those people whose kids give her stuff to the resale shop and crafty people like me pick it up and either wonder what I was thinking (to make something so hideous) or why I didn’t finish (since it’s so freakin’ close).

    Yep. Girl’s gotta have dreams.
