See, look- I came back!
Today I thought I’d tell you what Puff the Magic Rabbit is up to- well, some of it, anyway. There is a lot. For starters, there is some designing going on- which means patterns for you! One will be a cardigan- the pattern will be created while knitting the sample for Persimmon Tree Farms- here is the swatch in one of her colorways-
This is one strand baby boucle kid mohair and one strand brushed kid mohair held together. Should be a pretty quick knit- Persimmon Tree requested no waist shaping, no frills- though I think I’m going to sneak in some optional buttons with eye-cord closures. Otherwise, the gorgeous colors and texture of the yarn will do all the work. Once done and the pattern is written, I will do up a sample for my shop, too.
The other sweater I’m working on is a cowl-neck pullover w/ waist shaping and raglan sleeves, worked in brushed kid mohair.
Again, a quick knit in st st in the round, no seams except the underarms. Progress will be posted…
I just wound this skein off of the wheel…
204 yards at 15 wpi. I’m not sure yet if I will list this for sale, or keep it to play with. This is the first skein I’ve spun from the new roving I am dyeing and carrying. Which brings us to what is currently in https://www.etsy.com/shop/puffthemagicrabbit.
For now, all that is in the shop is several hanks of super wash BFL top- even 2 that were hand dyed by my sons.
Or perhaps you’ve already begun thinking of Halloween?
Those are just a few… go take a look!
We have also acquired Cthulhu- Destroyer of Worlds (or at least of knitting!)
She is a busy little thing- and an absolute sweetheart!
Next time I will introduce you to the bottle baby goat we have, as well as 2 rescues we picked up. Sometime this month I will be picking up 3 yearling does from Persimmon Tree Farms- lots of color entering our little herd!
And now, I knit…
