I took about 40 skeins of my handspun and about 20 finished woven and knitted items. Yikes! How did I create so many items? Oh yeah, I'm obsessed. That being said, here are the projects for this week.
This week, I ignored the fingerless mitts and my KAL Cowl and focused on spinning this delicious yarn. 80/10/10 SWMerino/Cashmere/Nylon. I absolutely LOVE it! 396 yards/4.4 oz 2 ply. I am calling it Sport Weight. It's almost fingering. She called this colorway Acid Wash and I'm going to leave that name on the yarn. I'm thinking an infinity scarf would really show off this yarn.
I also spun a fabulous batt made by jazzturtle creations called Bohama Breeze. OMG! It was so full of texture and fun and totally different from any batt I've ever spun before. LOVED LOVED LOVED it! As a fiber artist, it is always a delight and experience to knit with someone else's handspun or spin from someone else's batt. You learn so much. I left my comfort zone and got my "wild" on.
I also cast on Cordell the Owl. I'm only giving you a sneak peak. Next week...he'll be finished.
Finally, I ended up with a day off of work on Monday due to the fierce storm that passed through the Great Lakes region Sunday. We had a few trees down but luckily no structure damage. Only one pasture had issues and that was an inner fence. Our 27 foot travel trailer moved. I said a foot but I was exaggerating. There was movement though. Anyways, a day off of work meant more soap making and a finished woven scarf...that is now at the WAFA sale hopefully being sold. I'm calling this scarf Christmas Countdown.
