FINISHED projects!

So nice to be able to show something finished as opposed to in planning or in process - lots of that going on too of course! My niece had her baby so I got out the baby hat I had started - only a few rows done and got to work. Completed the main part of the head at my Stitch and Spin group on Thursday evening and was so excited to have started the green leaves at the top, I kept going when I got home until it was done! Just needs a wash and a block but it is so cute I can't stop myself from posting a picture.
Graces Pumpkin Hat Then my Aunt's finished scarf - washed and pressed!
Aunt Elaine's scarfOf course both projects need to be packaged and sent, fingers crossed I don't procrastinate too long on that. I do seem to have problems with snail mail.
Now for a little yarn porn - a new fiber in my LYS - Gosh Yarn It - where Thursday night Stitch and Spin is held. It is Artyarns - Rhapsody (silk and kid mohair). The picture does not do it justice, the colors just shimmer and it is so so soft. No plans for this one but it just begs to be next to the skin.
Finally, some fiber porn - this is January Southern Cross Fibre Club, Falkland in the colorway Paua. This is the second half, first already spun as a single and I am trying to decide if I should leave it as a single or do a 2 ply. Any suggestions? I have pre drafted it a bit and tomorrow I spin!


  1. Linda, The hat, way to cute. I love the colors and your aunts Scarf came out beautiful. Congrads. on both projects. Love the new fiber, great colors. Kathy

  2. Pretty knitting, weaving, and spinning! It's definitely a tough choice with plying - I hear ya!
