I started a new scarf from an unraveled sweater.
The yarn is from a sweater that has the contents of 35% wool, 35% viscose (anyone know what that is?), 15% nylon, 10% silk, and 5% cashmere. Even though its only 10% silk, the yarn feels like pure silk. I had to manipulate the picture to get it close to the actual color. It’s a light mottled green. It almost has an opulent feel to it. I really like working with this yarn. The sweater was a Goodwill purchase two years ago – less than $4.00 for the whole shebang. One of the reasons I like knitting scarves is so I can use this bargain yarn. Plus I do wear them to work.
School is going great for both kids and me. Gianna made the basketball team. She is also on the speech team. Both kids really like/liked the speech team.
Dj had his first football game yesterday. No, he doesn’t play football. He plays in the band! The first home game means he played a few tunes between the JV and varsity games.
DJ is the second trumpeter from the left in this picture. He’s also a second trumpet which means he doesn’t play the melody but the harmony. The band is small – only about 20-25 in it. Like all small schools, you have to do it all. So you see JV football players finish the game and come play; cheerleaders; kids who were working the t-shirt stands. That’s why not everyone has a uniform on.
I haven’t worked on the new quilt all week. I think I’ll spend some time on it tonight and tomorrow. I’ll post pictures when I can.
