I plan to make myself a cashmere bathrobe for next winter. But who can afford to knit such a thing? I found some cashmere sweaters at the Goodwill though! I’m going to cut them up and sew them together. Not sure exactly how.
(that yellow is actually a very yellowy lime green)
I know it’ll be warm and luscious… not sure about its fashion appeal… but then I tend towards the criminal in that department.
Knitting has kind of taken a back seat to almost everything else, in part because of the tendinitis pain. But oooo and lah lah lah, it’s better this week. Perhaps the cortisone shot (No! Fun!), or perhaps the new wrist brace I wear to bed. All I know is I’m more comfortable!
I did manage to shorten the sleeves on DH’s Papa Bear Pullover. Although he does have monkey long arms, the sleeves needed to be shortened about 4 inches. Glad I did them from the top down!
I even spent some time digging in the garden making spaces ready for some dye plant seedlings I started (wearing the other brace…) and that did not cause lasting pain.
Part of that left photo is the pathway, yes, yes, a weedy thing, as are most of those front banks…
But aren’t the tulips fabulous?
