It's a beautiful June morning and here's my start on The Goode Huswife's June Morning. I'm using Belle Soie as 'thread paint' instead of the DMC 'paint by number process'. I'm really having fun using this technique. I'm stitching on 40 count Vintage Dark Green Slate by Lakeside Linens. Kind of like 'vintage dark black' except prettier! Sunshine and my Ott lite are of great importance here!!
Look at this new sock yarn (like I needed more sock yarn). Lorna's Laces Ysolda Red (thanks Mel for enabling!) and Butterscotch. And two more skeins of that Crazy Zauberball in Red/Purple and Black/Grey/White colorways.
And, the start of a new sock using TOFUtsies yarn. This fiber is made from superwash wool, Soysilk, cotton and Chitin. This will shock you....Chitin is fiber made from shrimp and crab shells! NO the fiber does not stink....and the label says it's naturally antibacterial! Go figure..... I knit socks toe up using the Magic Loop technique.
Last, but not least, my pretty Belle. She always likes to get in the action. As soon as I put a blanket on the table and added the yarn she was all up in my business. Her pose says...'Quit takin' pics of me'.....wink,wink. She loves every minute of all the attention! She's my gal.
Thanks for stopping by and HAVE A SIMPLY FABULOUS WEEK!!
