Know what this is?
Wooly noodles ???
A mixed up mess?
Nahhhh, I promise !
watch what the magic of washing can do.
Hmmm.. little kitten paws linger closely, kitten about ready to pounce on my handspun bombyx-merino in colorway Juniper Berry.
I had about 140 yards (4 ounces) of fiberly goodness, and wanted to make another sample for our booth at upcoming fairs...
so I made this.... a lovely lace scarf ! The pattern is from one of the best little books EVER - 365 Stitches. It is the fishtail lace pattern.
Wanna see it up close?
This was a one day project - fast, yummy fiber, quite rewarding.
Nancy Finn, the artist behind the Chasing Rainbows Dyeworks name, will be teaching classes at the June Black Sheep Gathering this year, and we will be having almost an entire booth dedicated to her fibr and yarn. (yes, I'm in heaven!)
I love working with this stuff - it's the same fiber as I have been using for my 'magic sweater' (which is completed by the way.. photos soon, I promise!)
Oh and, here's proof that my sweetie, K, really does wear his socks.
AND, thanks to Leah (you cutie!.. see her comment on my last post) He now walks around saying "cool dude, cool dude" (imagine heavy German accent with this deep bass voice) I laugh every time he does that. (yes, yes, I know, my sense of humor is a little silly)
