    AH!! I've been waiting and waiting for the Acer photo!! Wonderful! and so much beautiful work. Happy New Year, looseends.

    Thank you!

    We had much more snow on the ground in December (close to 2 ft) but then had lots of rain and warm temps. I am hoping for some more snow soon.
    I hope you will show the completed skein!
    Are you thinking about making Acer?

    I should mention how much l enjoyed knitting Acer. Partly because I frogged a sweater I wasn't happy with to harvest the Peace Fleece. I know that I will wear this one frequently. I might even make a second one with some handspun that has been marinating in my stash for years.
  • beetgreen PRO 7y

    yes, but i'm a bit anxious. i've never made a cardigan. 2009 will be the year of moving forward on the sweater front. I'm thinking Peace Fleece Kamchatka Seamoss. but that ancient fern....

    what size did you make?

    oooh yes that is a good start to the year! happy new year!
  • looseends 7y

    I made the size that is 37 inches and am happy with the fit. I would be happy to help you if you get stuck. It may even be a good excuse to get together again.

    Could that roving look any more appealing and desirable? LOVE your new hat and sweater, too. Happy new year!

    Your Acer looks great! I can't wait to be finished with mine. :)
  • Mia PRO 7y

    Your Acer is making me want to start mine. And the roving is lovely. I have finally gotten my wheel and I am addicted.

    Do you make your own dye?.
  • looseends 6y

    No, I use primarily Country Classic dyes.
  • william kiely 6y

    Years and years ago in this country.The women gathered a type of moss off the rocks then boiled it up and soaked the wool in it.There was a program on tv a while back called Hands you should look it up i think you would like it. RTE.iRELAND.aLL THE BEST FROM ireland.
