The mincemeat I made last week, did not really follow me home as most of it has always lived here, but it sure looks yummy. I am hiding in it the cellar today to keep myself from eating it for a few months.
Secondary fermentation on the apple cider I pressed with the help of some little girl feet. No the feet did not touch the apple bits. I should tuck this away too, but it is mostly an experiment and is neat to watch bubbling away - sort of a kitchen pet.
Okay this did follow me home, or maybe a better way of putting it would be jumping into my hands and would not go back to the shelf. I am thinking a cowl. This is Universal Yarns Bamboo Bloom Handpaints in Koi Pond. I really like that it lists bamboo but acknowledges that it is bamboo rayon 48%, blended with wool 44% and acrylic 8%. Sort of truth in labeling. We shall see how it knits...
Same company this yarn is for Beaver's fingerless gloves (birthday project due Nov 1) and is one of the things I went into the store for. My local yarn store, Beading Heart Studio, is actually a bead store that expanded into yarn. The whole store is supper tiny, but she really gives good service - she was teaching her son (about 10 I'd guess) how to help customers and ring orders when I was in there, and has put a lot of thought into what products she has there. I like that she has beaded knitting project kits as it is a logical tie in. She showed me the cowl she made out of the Bamboo yarn I bought and warned me that if she was going to do it again she would not have purled. I agreed with her.
I started this after dinner. I have nine inches so far on Mouse's sweater. I will have a few things to work out to make it work but I really like it. His eyes lit up when he saw it this morning. I think the stitch the loom forms looks a bit like a cable stitch. I am now planing on taking a whack at my Christmas list by looming up a few cowls for people on my list.
