Yup! Just a wee bit productive. First, I am sharing the owl that I teased you with last week. He is even more adorable than I had hoped he would be. I really am going to have to make another one because now I don't want to give him away.
Next, this skein of yarn is used from all of the fiber that I take off my drum carder. You can see on my spinning wheel behind my owl. I keep a gallon size baggie next to the drum carder and after I make batts, any of the leftover fiber that I take off that isn't "nice enough" for selling goes in the bag. This skein is either going to be a colorful hat or mitts. I'm not sure yet.
I realized earlier this week that I haven't made any unisex hats in awhile and they always make great gifts and sale items. I found the Barley pattern on Ravelry and thought it would be perfect. It was a quick knit. I had it done in just a couple of days. This hat is using a skein of 100% BFL dyed by Our Humble Castle. I like it so much that I am casting on another one using my Alpaca.
