Our skylight sometimes bathes the Guardian Angel print in beautiful light. Its as if a spotlight has been aimed right at the print. Beautiful. This Sunday morning finds me trying to get everything together before I leave on another trip. It sure seems like I have been traveling a lot. This time I go to work on two shows; first, Cedar Falls, IA to work on Sweeney Todd, then Gainesville, FL to work on The Wizard of Oz. Then its back home for a week, then off again for a few days to work on Oz. Then my sister comes to visit for our (hopefully) annual trip to the New York Sheep and Wool Festival. We had a great time together there last year. The end of September and October will be busy!
But first things first, I must pack and figure out how to take everything in a carry-on. Flying to Iowa involves three separate flights! This will be a long day. Hopefully, I will be able to keep in touch on the road. We’ll see. I hope your weekend is restful and happy.
The last few days have brought a chill to the air. I wake up in the morning and I feel like I need slippers and a little shawl to wrap around me while I drink my coffee. And even though I said I only wanted to crochet, I have been obsessing about knitting. I’ve been looking through books and magazines admiring all the great patterns. As I am about to go out of town again, this time for work, I need a project to have on hand for down time at the hotel(s). I was looking through a book and found a bulky knit sweater that should knit up rather quickly. Finding super bulky yarn locally took a bit of work but I found this:
The yarn is Burly Spun by Brown Sheep and the pattern is in Simple Chic by Jill Eaton. Its just your basic oversize V-neck pullover. These may be a bit bulky to pack….oh, oh. Here’s the sweater:
