My first Fiber Friday posting, yay!  Cheesy  Everyone's yarn is so gorgeous, I love it all this week!


Sunny Seas, no plans for it yet...




Rhubarb Garden, which I'm going to knit into a wrap-type thing for my mom



Cotton Candy Punk, which I'm still spinning...I'm thinking of knitting it into a hat



B&W, which is a lot thinner than the others, not sure what to do with it...and there's not much of it, I'll have to spin some more  Smiley



I'm still learning...these are the first real skeins I've spun so far, and they're all pretty small  Wink  I dyed all the roving myself too, with the exception of B&W...which I'm pretty proud of, but I definitely need more practice!

2  my very own BR hat knockoffs... in Knitting: Completed Projects by thefragileone on: October 04, 2007 05:09:39 PM
Thanks so much to metaphysical_muse for the pattern!  Grin


This is the first one I made - Lion Brand Wool-Ease in Lumberjack Red.  I followed the pattern exactly, but I used 10s instead of 8s...and I guess my head is too tall, it ended up a little shorter than I would have liked (but still so cute!)

So after I made that one, I decided to use up the remains of my Moda Dea Tweedle Dee (Surf & Turf) and make another one...this time I added a few rows extra, and it's a little longer  Cheesy

God I adore that yarn. It looks so beautiful. And acrylic? Really?

P.S. You + a shaved head = love.


Yup, it is acrylic!  Grin 

And here's a whole-head view  Wink

I should have used a circular needle, the bonnet part was a huge pain on straight needles  Roll Eyes  I used Moda Dea Tweedle Dee yarn in Surf & Turf - the pattern is from Knit 2 Together by Tracey Ullman and Mel Clark  Smiley






It's the coziest thing ever...too bad it's still hot here  Roll Eyes
