1  Striped hat. in Knitting: Completed Projects by sunflowerfairy on: February 22, 2007 01:39:07 PM

I needed a new hat. And finished this just in time for the rain and snow we are getting!

It's a little more masculine than I normally wear, but I like it.

2  I said I wanted more color. in Spinning: Discussion and Questions by sunflowerfairy on: February 13, 2007 08:50:49 AM
Boy, did I ever get it.

This roving is from www.dyepot.com.

It's handdyed superwash merino. And BRIGHT! I can't wait to spin it. They are having a sale, go take a look.

The service was superfast and Christina is a sweetie.

No more boring naturals for me for awhile!

4  Regine sweater- done! in Knitting: Completed Projects by sunflowerfairy on: February 03, 2007 02:19:23 PM

I've been knitting and spinning alot lately, but nothing has been finished for 2007 until yesterday.

It's a pretty sweater, one that I thought I could wear to a super bowl party. Unfortunately, it's h-u-g-e on me, so I have my first official Christmas gift done. Go me. The sizing issue is all my fault- I swatched, but didn't block it. I also didn't use the recommended yarn. 2 lessons learned.

The pattern is free- check out http://saunshine.blogspot.com/. Her pattern is in her side bar (Regine is the sweater name.)

What next??

6  Latest spin, pink! in Spinning: Completed Projects by sunflowerfairy on: December 12, 2006 01:09:22 PM

I'm hoping to spin enough for a small shawl or even a pair of mittens.

I explain all about it in the blog, along with other photos of this and more roving.

I love roving.

Not as much a yarn...yet...but it's a close second.

I'd love to see what everyone else is working on!

7  I'm improving. in Spinning: Completed Projects by sunflowerfairy on: December 04, 2006 11:27:50 AM
I'm getting the feel of it. I had issues with too little take up and too much spin, but after an adjustment or two, it's better.

Days 1-3:

And beautiful gray roving:

I wish that I had specific questions to ask, but so far I'm figuring it all out. I haven't tried any of my "good" roving yet and I haven't tried to ply. Those are next. I'm hoping to have  a friend over Thursday night and go from there.

I also need a niddy noddy. Any ideas for a cheap/quick homemade one??

Thanks for the welcome.

8  Green mittens for my BIL in Knitting: Completed Projects by sunflowerfairy on: November 22, 2006 12:33:39 PM
Another holiday project down-

I finished green acrylic mittens for my brother in law. His hands are huge!

They went quick though. They were done on 2 size 8 circular needles using Utopia yarn.

It's my first lace shawl. And I think it looks...

Awesome. I love it. If you are interested in knitting lace and you are a beginner this is the perfect pattern for you.

10  Sienna Cardigan from Interweave Knits Fall 2006 in Knitting: Completed Projects by sunflowerfairy on: September 17, 2006 12:22:14 PM

Made with yarn sent to me by a sweet friend in Ireland, this sweater took me just over 2 weeks to finish.

It goes in the Christmas pile. Only 6 more gifts left to complete! How many days do I have left? lol
