These are the projects I worked on this month.
The light isn’t very good and I’m still learning how to use the camera. However, it’ looks a.bout the right color.
From Left to Right – autumn Shetland roving, light Shetland roving, Alpaca & Shetland beret with beads, rose Coopworth roving, Silver and pink infinity scarf (scarf and hood in one), hand-dyed Jacob, and hand-dyed Alpaca & Shetland.
I find it amusing that I’m not able to knit well with my own yarn. I can crochet with it – no problem. But knitting seems to work best with the ‘cheap stuff’.
I think it’s all hooey – I’m more comfortable with crochet because I know all the stitches and hook sizes. I’m determined to get over it. LOL
What I did notice that surprised me: the ball of light Shetland roving is spinning up much thicker than I expected and exactly as I hoped. However, it doesn’t have enough color to suit me. I’m itching to ply it with something more colorful, like a light aqua or that rose, or something my supplier calls ‘lime splash’ which is also multi-color. OR maybe I should just break out the beads again and let them add the sparkle.
HMMM…I really need to be careful, if I get too crazy I’m going to have to sell this stuff instead of giving it away for Christmas.
