Yesterday was a pretty quiet day. Karen and I did some photographing in the morning and then she went to her shop. I sat and knit. On Saturday, we went to Lincoln City and I got some new yarn at Nestucca Bay Yarns. So yesterday afternoon I had my face in some of the new yarn. Have a cap cast on and the ribbing and about 2 inches of the body done.
I was busy watching the new cap develop and the phone rang. It was from my neighbor, Karen, and my friend and mentor, Yarnwench, was looking for me. So I sat outside and in a few minutes up the lane came the Yarnwench and her husband. We had about 20 minutes of good conversation and I showed her the contest cap, and the cap I had started yesterday.
This new cap is being worked in a Noro yarn called Kureyon. When I first started capping, I tried some of the Kureyon but thought it was too scratchy for heads and ears so I switched to Silk Garden and have been working in Silk Garden since. But this Kureyon is nice. It feels like wool but without the scratchiness. Early on in my capping history, I decided that I would not use any yarn that felt scratchy to the ears. So my yarn shopping tends to be pretty tactile.
Well, that is about all from here for now. Hope you all have a good day. Granny Lj
