Shhhh.. don't tell Kristi.. but I ordered some yarn. From Webs.com. I've been looking for months for some yarn to make a winter shawl. I tried to find a variegated yarn in red, white and green - no luck. Then a variegated one in shades of red - no luck. I finally found a deep blood red in 50% Alpaca 50% Silk. While I was shopping I took a gander at their cotton and decided to try 3 skeins. I'm very happy with the look and feel of the cotton! I have an idea to make something with this that looks like little rows of flowers..
A close up of the cotton.. the off white is organic cotton!
Here is the red -- I was somewhat surprised at how skinny the skeins are. I don't think I'll get far on a shawl with this lot. I'm not sure how to proceed! These might just make a hat or fingerless gloves. What to do? The skeins are 50 grams! 146 yards. Meredith, help, how many skeins of this would I have to use to make a shawl like those you've made?
See how skinny they are compared to the cotton skeins?
But man oh man.. you should feel this stuff.. !
My roses are opening up and are swooningly gorgeous!!
They seem to be enjoying the sun, too.
The red rose up above was taken with my Lumix camera - this one was taken with my iPhone 5S!
Yes, the sun is back and it's windy like crazy! They have clocked wind gusts at Vista House at 115 mph! It's down to 90 mph gusts today. I thought I'd show you a fused glass plate I made.. and the tiny clay chickens in front of it are part of a gift from my blog friend Taci. I painted the little log cabin years ago.
OK, I must pack my swim bag and get going, I'm meeting Gracie for lunch at Red Robin before we do our swim workout at the gym. I hope you have a WONDERFUL weekend!! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
