What's this? A long lost Farmday post? Oh yes yes yes!
Ok so before anyone gets TOO excited, I'm going to be brief.
I have a problem.
I tend to take myself too seriously.
I started this blog in an effort to write about my farmy pursuits and instead I have waxed political and waned....sometimes unto not posting at all.
So I want to make a promise to you lovely readers and to myself.
From now on, Fearless Farmgirl's blog will only be a place of fun, relaxation, joy and positive vibes......
Not so you we can all stick our heads in the sand, mind you, but so we can find some space to be free of the things that cause stress. Ok, in the interest of brevity....
A while back I showed you my efforts to dye some wool using Pokeberries. It turned out fantabulous and when hubs saw the color, he gasped "Will you make me a hat with that!!"
Well who can argue with such admiration?
Hence this cute little number for his Valentine's Day present (better tell him not to check my blog eh?):
Put them together and what have you got?
Bippity Boppity Booooo!
It turned out well if I do say so myself. The Raspberry-ish color is the pokeberry dyed yarn, the light brown blocks are some natural Shetland I spun myself and the black is store-bought. Too bad I had to take a photo at night. Colors never turn out right.
Oh and now, I'm on to Christmas knitting. Yup, you heard right. I didn't hardly do any handmade for Christmas 2011 and it didn't feel right at all so I'm starting early for this year. I am not doing that again! Ick!
Bye Farmgirl Fans, until next time.....
