I have been knitting too... I swear!

My knitting time has been a little compromised with the packing and new furry baby bunny distractions... but I swear I HAVE been knitting some too!

Bitterroot

imageI started a "Bitterroot" shawl by Rosemary Hill, a free Knitty pattern available online... using some spindle spun yarn I made right after I got my Golding Spindle last year. The wool was a Merino Sliver handpainted by Fleece Artist... and delightfully soft!  you can read more about the yarn itself in another post here.  This yarn is somewhere around fingering weight, though maybe about the thickness of a thinner sock yarn.  The way the 2 plies gradually change from one color to the next, there is a slight heathering and gentle mixing of one color to the next.  I am excited to see how the transitions go :)

I decided that I would try doing the pattern as written even though I only have around 300 yards of yarn.  I can always take a repeat out somewhere when the time comes.  I hope that I don't come to regret the "Fudge-it" strategy on this one.

And of course the prerequisite baby pic... since I know you all wonder how the baby is!  Fuzzy warm and Growing!

No post is complete without a Ruttiger update!!!  You'll become the crazy bunny lady to my crazy lapdog lady.  It's still not the same as the crazy cat lady, at least that's what I keep telling myself.  How big will he get Jolene?  Oh, nice knitting btw;)

oops...that was NOT from ernie, but you know that.  Ernie can't type.

Can't wait to see how it turns out and love the cute baby bunny! ;)

Shawl is looking great so far!  

The yarn looks gorgeous I'm sure it'll turn into a beautiful shawl. The bunny is cute too.
