A few recent fo’s to share with you all.
A woven scarf for a co-worker
And a pair of fingerless mitts started in 2009 and just finished last weekend. These will get a TON of use!
I started the pattern Driftwood last night, I couldn’t pass up the chance to try a new technique! I really like how the contiguous sleeves look and a set-in sleeve is more flattering for me.
My handspun is a bit heavier than the madtosh dk and dk twist but I think it will all work out in the end.
I also had some crafting time today. Knitting and beer, mmmmm.
What’s the most recent technique you learned? Hope you’re enjoying the lovely weather we’re having this weekend!
I haven’t been doing much crafting besides spinning lately. I was on a tear and weaving everything I could get my hands on, but it seems I need a little break from that. I did finish 1/2 of a pair of gorgeous knee socks at the beach a few weeks ago.
So lots and lots of yarns coming off of the wheel lately.
I’ve also been working in the garden a bit, it’s still dark and wet here so I can’t plant the good stuff just yet. It rained today and hasn’t been hot enough for tomatoes and that’s really the only plant I care about over the summer.
How are your gardens coming?
If any of you follow my flickr stream, you’ve probably noticed the huge number of woven scarves each week. It turns out, last year I wove 45 scarves from March to December!
Most of them weren’t for me, but they didn’t make it to the shop very often either. You’ll see more of them here soon.
Update in the shop, and look for more handspun yarns to come soon!
