Wool Rover

It’s coming and I cannot contain myself!  The Laverne to my Shirley, the Lenny to my Squiggy, my land rover is coming home on Saturday after a three year overhaul hiatus!  But Striker sure is a beaut…mint chip green ~sigh!  I bought this truck during a possessed Anglophile moment that has since progressed.  I needed a little help along the way and started to trade knitted garments for mechanical assistance.

One new truck frame later, all new brake lines, perfectly patched bulkhead and a new horn, this rig is ready to assist me and Tyler on our lastest project.  It might take a while to get where we going but that is half the journey!

Curious to know what my Rover Guru is getting for this project?  Stay tuned for pics but I can tell you I bought the yarn from Nanne Kennedy of Meadow Croft Farm, SeaColors and I am knitting Staghorn from A Fine Fleece by Lisa Llyod…can’t wait for my upcoming road trip to Florida, you can bet I’ll be knitting and trekking!
