Sometimes Weaving, knitting, dyeing,or Felting First!

The Christmas knitting continues!
Finished my brother's microphone cozy, just needs a wash. Knit out of my handspun Spunky Eclectic "Headache" single. This is pre-soak, it is soaking now.
Tendrils finished plying and washed. This if for my next socks with tall cuffs.
At my spectacular, lovely, fantastic weekend at the beach with Elaine, Elizabeth, Susan and Leslie I wove my scarf. I have been wanting to do one with the stripes long ways. Kind of miscalculated so ended up with a more narrow warp than I thought but I have already worn it!
During the week, in bits after work, I got my Harp rewarped with yarn I bought from Spunky Eclectic to do another hounds tooth scarf. The first I gave to Susan but I loved the pattern and the fabric the yarn made so I got yarn for a project for me.
Swatching to find out how the yarn I got for Hannah's Felted Hat will felt. I am thinking I will use light blue instead of the fuchsia. I think that will work better for her. Got too dark to get a picture of my second swatch. This last Christmas gift needed to wait until she was here so I can get a good fit (that is my story and I am sticking to it!)
