Beaverslide Dry Goods: 2 ply-merino/mohair; color--woodsmoke heather
Grown on a family owned and run ranch in Montana, this merino wool/kid mohair yarn is eco-friendly, processed in Canada, and spun on an antique spinning mule. What's not to love?
The beads have been in the 'stash' for years; I'm hoping there are enough....gunmetal grey shouldn't be too hard to match, though, should it? I'm using the mini-crochet hook method of applying the beads to this knit-as-you-go cabled border--a nice contrast to the garter body of the shawl. It's not a hard pattern, but not one where I can knit and read.....so I've been listening to audiobooks. (Is this cheating for yarnalong? Hope not. I sort of do it a lot.)
I have loved loved loved both recently finished books....Sweet Tooth (Ian McEwan) is a cold war spy/espionage love story with a lovely twist I totally didn't see coming at the end.
The Art Forger (B. A. Shapiro) is about an artist/art reproductionist who finds herself accused of forging a stolen piece from the famous Boston Gardner Museum heist of 1990.
I just started the Chaperone but haven't really listened to much of it----since I discovered that you can watch Downton Abbey (season 3) online until March 3rd! I heard there is an amazing knit baby blanket.....haven't made it to that episode yet!!!
