Pop of color

Blocked and seamed is this cowl inspired by the Mustard Scarf by Jane Richmond. Cast on the number of stitches per pattern but keep knitting until there wasn't any yarn left.  Then seamed the edges and voila!


Three loops, two loops....


Apparently, orange is my new black. Latest handspun, hats and cowl? All orange!

First time using Rowan Pure Wool and definitely not the last one. It is not the softest but nice enough to be close to my skin.

From the farm...

...to the stash.

Some of my treasures are rustic, simple, un-dyed. And I cannot like them more!

Humbug Farm 2 ply Border Leiceter Worsted, 4 oz, 230 yards per skein


Ross Farms 2 ply Jacob Worsted, 3.8 oz, 250 yards per skein


Snowshoe Farm, Alpaca-Merino-Nylon Sock, 500 yards per skein


Grand View Farm, Gotland Roving




Let's all wish for peaceful time for admiring our treasures and enjoying our pleasures.



The making of...

...the last handspun of the year!

On a beautiful day, divide fiber with gusto and find a beautiful box to store it.


Second, try out your new fiber toy to ply singles.


Third, dance to your favorite music while admiring your last handspun of the year.


Last, post on the blog and wish everyone who reads a Happy, happy New Year! xo
