I finally got around to using the beautiful yarn I spun over a year ago.  I wish I had made it a bit bigger, but I was worried that I would run out of yarn.  Oh well, it still makes a nice scarf, and is so soft!

Elder Tree Shawl Pattern here

Simple crocheted cowl. The yarn is handspun superwash merino. Despite the many holes, it’s super warm, and perfect for chill winter days.

I’ve been knitting a lot of socks lately. These are my three most recent pairs. I’ve got the basic pattern down pretty well. I think it’s time for a break from socks for a while though…

… I’ve forgotten what this is except for that it is wool from a herd of endangered heritage sheep at Colonial Williamsburg.

Preliminary/bad photo of: 25/74 bison/alpaca blend. 1oz, 2 ply. Yardage: hopefully enough for a hat.

70/30 Oatmeal Bluefaced Leicester/Tussah Silk; “Trapeze”
4 oz (still have to determine yardage)

8 oz superwash merino -> 466 yards 2 ply

The finished results of this dye-experiment roving! I’m really pleased with it! 

My first go at chain/navajo plying!  I really really like the results.  This very well be my default playing method from now on.  

I plied the single I spun using this roving.
