I have two completed projects to share. First, is my most recent weaving project. This scarf was created on my Cricket loom using two different blue wool yarns and one variegated yarn in tencel. (Yes, blue - I didn't have time to get to my light box and late night photos didn't capture the color...btw, last week's cowl was shades of black not gray. Might need to consider a new camera)
I used the clasped weft technique throughout this project and let the shades of blue work off of each other. I didn't get home until after dark last night so I wasn't able to get the best photo of the colors but the royal blue and navy blue together are stunning.
Next, I needed to work on a knit project that get my mojo back. I picked the Rock on! pattern by denknits. I used handspun merino/cashmere that I had spun last year from fiber my friend Emily at FiberAddiction dyed. I am in love with this hat and I am keeping it for myself.
Next weekend I will be at the Knittin' in the Mitten Fiber Retreat (KitM14) where I intend to get some serious knitting done. Yes, I will be taking my spinning wheel and there is a good chance that more spinning will take place than knitting but a gal can always hope.
My swap partner did receive her package yesterday and posted pics on Ravelry so I can share the scarf now but...I didn't take photos before sending it. Doh! I'm hoping she will so I can update my project page and hopefully share that scarf here as well.
Happy Halloween! Now, share your adventures in Fiber Arts!
