February was pretty uneventful on the farm. We are just
I finished a tote/bag that I had started a while back.
I used some handspun Border Leicester, dyed with Cushings, mahogony. The yarn was made from Lucy's fleece. She has a more course fleece than some of our other BL sheep, and it works great for these types of projects.
I didn't follow the pattern exactly, I made mine a bit smaller and I didn't fnd straps that I liked for the bag, so I knit/felt a set. It was one of those projects, that I just about ran out of yarn (nail biter). It wasn't like I could go to the store and pick up another skein. I didn't take notes when dying, so getting the exact same color, would have been near impossible.Thankfully, I finished it, with none to spare.
