I did not finish the sweater for afghans for Afghans in time. I did try my darndest, but then work and the dyeing took over completely, and the sweater is still here.
I want to remind you that I got yarn free from them specifically for the purpose.
I am a bad, no good knitter, because I am causing suffering for a child in Afghanistan this winter. Or at least I did not get my act together in order to help alleviate the suffering.
Of course I will keep knitting for them right after the fest, and still send out the sweater, but I don't think it's going to make it for this shipment. Trust me, this is causing me bad dreams.
During the day, I have been working on this when I could:
This pile is going to Rhinebeck with me tomorrow, and will be parked in the SLIVER MOON FARM booth, where Kay and Laurie are so graciously letting me sell my yarn alongside theirs, in exchange for me helping them out.
Still dyeing this morning, hoping this will dry by tonight.
Any more than this, and I need to apply for my own booth. I have almost all merino worsted and sport here, kettledyed, and also some individually hand painted skeins.
