At least this baby robin could until Momma came back and shoved him back into the nest with a swift kick.
Today after a trip to the farmers market and some stuff in the yard, I sat down to warp my Kromski Harp. Our usually large farmers market was pretty lonely. About 1/3 of the vendors are missing, I think because of fuel costs as most of them drive pretty far to sell. I bought Knitting Hubby’s favorite bread, a batch of rhubarb and some breakfast radishes (what ever those are!!).
I decided to use my large batch of Green Mountain Spinnery Cotton Comfort yarn to weave a scarf. Maybe for Mom’s birthday if it comes out nice. Cotton Comfort is 20% organic cotton and 80% wool. GMS describes the yarn as light, casual but elegant. And suggests that the resulting fabric be finished by gently washing it in lukewarm water using a vegetable oil based soap and quickly spin drying in the washer. mmmm, should be interesting. I’d bought the yarrow colored yarn a few years ago, on clearance sale, to do a short sleeve sweater. Never got around to it.
