Hey, Everyone! I'm still here!
|I haven't done any spinning or weaving for months. But since I'm finally feeling more myself, I've gone back under the loom.|
|I wove this towel months ago. The pattern and cone of bulky cotton chenille are from Halcyon Yarn. The 5/2 cotton is from my stash. I finally washed and hemmed the towel. |
Now, I've made many towels but, I've never been completely satisfied with their absorbency. Ever. This pattern called for the use of a product I'd never heard of, Soda Ash. It changed the towel from one that moves water from place to place to one that actually absorbs and dries!!
So, what have I been doing?
|Well, I made this sweet koala, just because.|
|And, ta-da! I knit this sweater. The pattern is from the Wool Studio, The Norah Gaughan Collection magazine. I used Berroco's Ultra Wool Fine.|
|It's another style that I would never have thought was for me. And I adore it!|
|Now, on to my next knitting project. This is from Ann Budd's, Top Down Sweaters book.|
|It's California, so I can't exactly say I'm trying to get ahead of things for spring. Spring's about here.|
|For the first time in a couple of years, the wisteria is putting on a show!|
