It's been raining here all week. I'm glad, because we really need the rain and because it seems like more knitting gets done on rainy days. I'm nearly finished with my scarf already and I've started a new project too.
It's the beginning of Nothing but a T-shirt using Brooks Farm Yarn Willow, a light worsted weight superwash wool/bamboo blend. I had a tough time deciding what to knit with this yarn. I tend to be attracted to variegated yarns in the skein and then I never know how to use them to their best advantage. Simple stockinette stitch and casual styling was the way I decided to go and so far I think it's working. The colors are aligning nicely with no major pooling problems.
I'm also happy with how neatly the first hem went in.
Back to the rain. I'm not sure how it will affect the fishing this weekend, but we'll know soon enough. We're heading out for Matagorda after lunch to try our luck. The lures are packed and ready to go.
Let's hope the fish are hungry!
If we catch something good, I'll report in on Monday as usual. Otherwise I may wait until later in the week. Matt and Carly are coming for a visit (arrive on Monday) and there won't be much time for blogging or knitting while they are here.
Rain or shine, I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
