I've been trying to knit from my stash since losing my most well-paid job in 2009. It doesn't seem to be working for the project below.
This is Greta by Christina Wall. I have a lovely knit batik dress that I need a vest to wear with it. I thought this vest would look very nice with it. I thought I'd be able to use my teal worsted wool with it. No, the green in the leaf pattern is not teal. I think I unearthed a hank of yarn that was called spruce green when I bought it. It sort of looked like teal, though. It didn't go with the dress, either. The only yarn I know is spruce green is in the cedar chest that's currently covered up with boxes. Finding it will have to wait for a little while. I think of the other color in the pattern as purple, but I'm pretty sure that's not what it is. It might be sort of a plum. I might have a hank near to it in color to use as a guide. *Sigh*
All I've been able to do is think about knitting. I'm allergic to dust and off my partial allergy shot treatment for 3 years. My body was not very happy with the heating season this year. I was too muddle-headed to want to knit. I knew I'd probably mess something up. I'm feeling a little better now.
While I haven't been able to knit, I used my thoughts to pursue my other avocation of genealogy. I recently bought a month's subscription on Genealogybank. Even though it's the same old story that a site is only as good as the resources it has on your family (as in none for the Indiana relatives), I am finding information for paternal relatives in Massachusetts. I hope I find some information for a cousin's family in New York.
