Wondering Wednesdays #3

Today I’ve decided to share what I am wondering about.

I recently found a free knitting pattern here that I really liked the looks of and decided to try with some of my hand spun yarn. I chose two skeins that co-ordinate, one a dark navy blue, the other the navy plied with a single of gray and light blue.

Hand Spun Wool

I’m on row 9 of 21 and I’m wondering how it is going to look? Should I have chosen yarn with more contrast? As you can see from the work on my needles, it’s too crowded on the 32 inch needles to really tell exactly how it will look when finished. So I will keep knitting and maybe try a different color combination for another one. It is a fun pattern.

And in case you are wondering, here are two hats that I have knitted to felt. I’ll try to remember to post follow-up pictures, after they are felted/shrunk to show what a big difference hot water and agitation can make.

Wondering Cat World

Cats are very self-contained and don’t share their thoughts all at once. G-Dog is especially private, so this may be a continuing series. Also he doesn’t read a calendar well with one bad eye, so this wondering Wednesday post is a day early!

Here he is wondering why registers are only warm for part of the year?

Can he manage to soak up enough heat to last through the summer?

Ahhh! Comfort!

Ahhh! Comfort!

Wondering Wednesday

I realize it’s not Wednesday, but I’m writing this to introduce a new regular feature for this blog.

What might you be wondering about?

Do you wonder “How is this or that made?”

Do you wonder¬† “How to handle a particular craft show or business problem?”

Do you wonder “How my cat spends his days?”

Do you wonder “What we’re working on now?”

Do you wonder “????????”

If it’s within my scope of knowledge, I’m willing to discuss it. (Just let me know in a comment) Some may not be answered immediately, but will go on my list! So stay tuned, and wonder with me, what the next post will be.
