Featured FO: Talmadge Cloche

Yesterday evening, just as the last bits of color were fading from the sky, Mr. N and I decided to take advantage of the dry evening and pop out for an evening walk.  Even though it’s only early September, it’s already feeling quite cool in Lancaster (or “fresh” as I’ve noticed the weather reporters are calling it).  Unfortunately, the delivery of our things from the US has been delayed, so I don’t even have a jacket with me at the moment, but as I was about to walk out the door, wrapped up in my Starting Point, it occurred to me that I do have a woolly hat with me — my Talmadge Cloche, which I finished just before we left Los Angeles!  So I popped it on and resolved I’d remember to tell you a bit about it before the weekend was out.

Finished Islay!

Hi friends, just popping in because I’m so excited I had to share ….

I’ve finished my Islay! It needs a good bath over the weekend, but I’m pleased as punch that I finished it — even more so because it was just in time for the deadline of the KAL that Shetland Trader hosted on Ravelry.  I’ll do a fuller post with all my thoughts on this sweater soon, but suffice it to say that it’s a great sweater, and I highly recommend the pattern!

Some exciting knitting plans are afoot this weekend, which may or may not include some yarn shopping — looking forward to telling you all about it soon.

One last thing: fiber and sustenance now has it’s very own Instagram account!  If you’re on Instagram and like knitterly posts, follow along @fiberandsustenance.

Ok, that’s all for now! Hope you have a fabulous weekend — what do you have planned?
