Red red red

Anybody know the little old children’s book Ann Likes Red? “Red red red.” “‘Red,’ said Ann.”

The color is off a little but you can see that it is very red.

Here is a detail. I have a new camera and was playing with what it can do with no flash – but I couldn’t find the white balance button so the color is off here too.

I have 2 balls of yarn left, enough for a hat or scarf. The sweater is blocking now, and alpaca takes forever to dry, so in use pictures will follow next week. It blocked out nicely to exactly the size it was supposed to. The boat neckline turned out to be surprisingly flukey – we shall see when it’s worn whether or not I managed to get rid of the flukeyness.

I started the ‘Spinners Shawl’, Evelyn Clark’s new design for Fibertrends, which I was able to find at Two Swans. I had some handspun that I didn’t know what to do with, we’ll see how it takes to this pattern. I probably should be knitting it on large needles, but I just don’t feel like using anything bigger than size 8, and it’s my knitting, dammit!
