All things southern and more

I have been looking for things to knit that are southern in nature. I am hoping to be able to dress in period clothing for Civil War Reenactments and events and have been looking for shawl, cap etc patterns. I joined a group on Yahoo and found more resources... As soon as I have something nice made I will post my efforts..

One of the patters I really liked was put out by Goodey's Lady's book and is of a cap. I plan to do it first.. and probably will make a dress around it.

So since I was thinking South.. I decided to see where my linguistics was at... well here is the tail......

Your Linguistic Profile:

35% Dixie

35% General American English

10% Upper Midwestern

5% Midwestern

5% Yankee Kind of American English Do You Speak?

This rather fits me well.

This is my first spool of variegated yarn in Orange, Green, Brown etc.. from My Kromski wheel.

About a month ago I did a spinning exhibition at work and was featured in our newsletter spinning... I am beginning to be much more confident in sharing my spinning knowledge now.

As to knitting.. well...............I have finished some Maxim by Filatura Di Crosa that I picked up at Yarn Theory Jan is the bomb and always has a nice selection. If you are in Bedford, Virginia you need to look her up.

I plan to post pictures of these socks soon.. but I have the toes and running in treads to go. I may try to finish tonite though as tomorrow is supposed to be so very cool again. It is hard to believe it is spring from today's weather.. but I have seen....

All this and more is in our yard these days.... I do like spring.
