I've never stopped knitting, crocheting, or spinning during my break. In fact I've been quite busy, but it was nice to work on things, and not have to think about getting it done, so I have something to show on the blog. It was kind of relaxing.
For those who are on ravelry, and/or flickr contacts of mine, have probably seen these already.
yarn: Butterfly Super 10 multi color # 2016-Carousel, 5 balls (1100 yds)
size: to cover the doggy bed
I thought I would go insane knitting this. I like entrelac, but I don't like this cotton yarn, or better, this color. I wanted to get it out of my stash. Did not think it would end up as cover for Sam's pillow in the kitchen, but it did. This is a lovely pattern for a baby blanket, with any other yarn, I would knit it again. I made it a little bigger as the pattern calls for.
I did not nearly spin as much, last year, as I wanted too. I managed to finish this though.
Chocolate & Cherries, superwash merino, Sunshine Yarns, 4oz, 520yds, 2-ply
I've started knitting a scarf with this yarn, but ripped it out again. It didn't look like I imagined it would. Now it's on time out, like all the other handspun yarns, waiting for the perfect pattern.
Stay tuned for FO's 2!
