we interrupt our regularly scheduled deadline

... for...


Yarn: Sincere Sheep Yarn Co., from a sheep called 'Martha' in 2005
Needles: US 9 / 5.5mm Suzanne's rosewood 24" circulars
Pattern: Wayfarer from Brooklyn Tweed

All I can say is, it's all browncurls' and Lorilee's fault!
She posted a super-cute photo of herself and all her friends entwined in one of these, and I knew I had to make one.

Stash yarn, partly because it makes me feel good to make this out of some very sincere indigenous sheep (while the closest source for Jared's new yarn is 45 miles away) out of my likewise sincere stash.

The above was knit on a one-day odyssey over to The Other Side to look at dump trucks (yeah, we know how to party). Boy wants a new truck, and I took it as an excuse to cast on something fun for the drive over. Little did I know that my tired Sunday brain wouldn't be up for the monumental task of increasing, decreasing, and slipping selvage stitches the right way after 2 p.m. Not an AFP, perhaps, but fun nonetheless.

And since Martha's a Merino sheep, this will be a cozy accessory as the fall days draw in.

Thanks, Jared, for a great pattern! (And sorry for calling you 'Pipsqueak' all the time. It's a jealousy thing. I'll get over it.)
