When you Love to Knit
A dream of mine has always been to raise it, sheer it and spin my own yarn. So far I have not been able to do that. But one day a friend of mine sent me a photo of her yarn, from her sheep.
I couldn't wait to actually see it and feel it. She came for a visit at Lupine Cottage, with her yarn. I really wanted to try to knit with it. So I asked if she had time to play. I took my swift out and wound it into a ball.
Took it over to my knitting machine, and started a cable double knit mitten. I demonstrated each step as I made the mittens. Heidi got to sit at the machine and knit part of it herself.
It was so much fun trying a new yarn, and teaching what I love to do. We finished the mittens and she took them home with her.
The finished product.
