Taking a trip is almost always the signal to root through my stash and find a new project to knit. Not that I finish said project on my trip, but when it is finished one day, it's then a record of whatever I was doing at the time and hopefully, good memories to go with it.
I am behind on spinning to keep up with my enthusiastic spinner members of this spring's Roving Art group. I have spun the first month's, inspired by Mary Cassatt's painting "Mother and Child". It's what came with me on this trip. For my own knitting enjoyment, I'm knitting a simple triangle shawl with occasional rows of eyelet. Despite having been blown away seeing some of my Roving Art yarns spun up and knitted into lace by some members, I can't bring myself to spend that kind of concentration while I'm here to have fun.
Despite all best efforts to make this a lighter weight, two ply, I'm using a size 10 needle and you'll note...it's not particularly loose or lacy. Once a rug wool spinner, always a rug wool spinner????
