Weekending: Hankies
Resting On Cute

Unraveled Wednesday: Yarn from Scotland

Joining Kat & the Unravelers today, sharing what I'm knitting and reading.


I'm not actually knitting this yet, but I promised to share what Kate brought back with her from Scotland.


West Yorkshire Spinners, The Croft Shetland Tweed, 100% Shetland Island Wool, which she purchased on a quick weekend jaunt to the Highlands with her friend Blair -- I wish I remembered the name of the shop!


Anyway, I have one hank in the colorway Hillswick (#798) and I think I'm going to make mittens or socks -- probably mittens, and the likely candidates are Maize, Lambing Mitts, or Antler Mittens.


Kate has two hanks in the colorway Stonybreck (#759) and she's decided to make an Oats cowl.

What I am currently knitting (though I'm in a bit of a lull) is this:


A pair of Maize mittens for Junah! At least, I hope they're for him... the kid has some paws! They'll be for his sister, otherwise, and I'll have plenty of yarn to knit another pair for him.


The Unwomanly Face of War: An Oral History of Women in World War II by Svetlana Alexievich (audio), The Bright Hour by Nina Riggs. The reading is also going a bit slow lately... there are a million other little things going on, I guess.

I'm going on an outing with my book club next week for a Fox Cities Book Festival event. We'll be seeing author Richard Ratay talk about his book....

Don't Make Me Pull Over! The Informal History of the Family Road Trip... and that ought to be a hoot.



Those Shetland Island wools are both lovely, and I was happy to see that they're available in the US at Webs. Junah's mitts are seriously beautiful. I'm heading off to look for some of that yarn in your shop!


What lovely yarns! :-) And how fun to knit with yarn from Kate's latest Scotland adventure!


I love the yarn for Junah's mitts!


The Shetland wool yarns look beautiful. They will make nice warm mittens and memories. Have fun on your book outing!


Love the WYS yarn -- such a treat for both of you! I'm looking forward to seeing how it all knits up.


Gorgeous yarns!

Yarn from Scotland would be perfectly lovely! You and Kate will enjoy knitting up some memories.
