Abundance


The Rosebud vest, revisited. In Briar Rose Fibers Abundance, 100% Corriedale. The original pattern was written for another yarn, used double. I wasn't sure I would have enough to finish, so I used a single strand at a gauge of 4 sts/inch. Now, I have quite a bit left over. Which will likely become a sweater for Piccolo. I just have to look through the stash to pull some colors that will work along with it. I've been kind of obsessed with this color red lately. I have socks in progress, and a scarf in similar colors.
The deadline for early bird registration for Stitches Midwest is past, and I'm not registered for anything. Nothing really appealed, and the classes I felt marginal about were full when I checked last night. So, it looks like this year I'll be at the Market only. I had considered Knitting Camp this year, but I think I've ruled that out as well. It might be too much in a room with some personality I've been trying to avoid. This year we've got to get it together to get to the Michigan Fiber Festival earlier. We always forget about the change in time zone.

I think this is my favorite - the colors are beautiful!
