I started these Jammies by Chris de Longpre' KnittingAtKNoon back in April as a store sample for Your Local Yarn Shop. I used Fixation yarn by Cascade.....love how the variegation worked out in the top. Happy to have them finished!
The Key to Warmth was a project I started to use up some of my hand spun. The darker color was one of my first carded batts from a couple years ago that I paired with a commercial yarn. I've done several of the KellyJ patterns in her Key series because they work up quickly and are a great way to use up smaller amounts of hand spun. Their a win, win situation.
My last two projects were not in my knitting basket but just as persistent in wanting my attention. Neither one is finished but their moving along nicely now.
My first skein spun for my Stripe Your Fancy shawl. Finally got my second bobbin filled on my Ashford and plied it (drum roll please) using my new Lendrum. Love, love, love the Lendrum and it's jumbo flier. The skein measured 290 yds....not one knot....yeah! Now to finish the last of my batt and then I'll need to start working on the accent yarns.
and last but not least.......
my bead embroidered bracelet. I'm pretty sure all the accent areas are complete. Now all I have to do is sew on the back ground beads and attach it to the cuff blank.
I probably won't get much further on these last two project in the next week. Our farm is taking part in an Arts and Eats Tour on October 15 and 16 from 10am - 5pm. If your local, please stop by and meet our alpacas (and my husband's pet goats) and introduce yourself. I'd love to meet you in person...bring along your wheel/knitting/felting and join in along with some of my friends who will be demonstrating through out the weekend.
Happy Fiber Arts Friday!!
