4 Wool Drive

You've got to see it to believe it.,,2-2006270608,00.html

HERE’S a sports car you could pullover very smartly in — a Ferrari knitted from WOOL.
Art student Lauren Porter spent ten months making the full-size replica using 12 MILES of yarn.
The car, a cross between a Testarossa and a 355, is made of more than 250 squares over a steel frame and the horse badge is hand-embroidered.

I'm gobsmacked! My friends Bryan and Patricia surprised me with a baby sheep today for my birthday. Gobsmacked I tell you! I came home from fishing w/ my hubbie and my dad and found a book on raising sheep. What the... I thought. Then I looked out into the field and there she was with a purple bow tied around her neck. What a little angel she is. I promise there will be more posts soon (probably all on my other blog Straight Up Acres) with more pictures.

Flower Basket Lace Shawl

Whew - my first lace project is finished! I LOVE this shawl. The pattern was great, it was fun to knit and very exciting to watch it transform (especially after blocking). I highly reccomend this pattern. I did the Flower Basket Lace Shawl from Fiber Trends in Knit Picks Color Your Own fingering weight yarn with I dyed with Rit Dye colors pink and brown.


Blocking (using some metal rods I picked up at Home Depot):
