Catknip asked about the sheep that provide the wool for the yarn that I am spinning for Hanami (also have silver grey that I am spinning for the Pendants shawl from Heartstrings) There are lots of sheep photos on my personal blog and sadly outdated website, but I will share one here of the flock back in July, grazing on pasture. The roving I am spinning this yarn from was a combination of most of my white sheep
Here is yesterdays spinning results, too. Another skein of 2-ply, about a fine fingering weight yarn. I am spinning this on my little Louet S45 (love, love, love this wheel and am sad to hear that Louet is discontinuing them)
I am thinking of altering my stole a little bit. I was thinking I might knit 4 repeats (or maybe 5) of the basket weave on each end and then in the center (the part that will fall across my back) doing one of the cherry blossom charts - either B or C. I don't think I will put beads across the back, but will have beads at both ends. I don't know though, I am really loving those beads!
What do you all think? I would love opinions!
