11  Bag Made From Handspun in Spinning: Completed Projects by grayling40 on: March 06, 2008 02:12:47 PM
I've seen a lot of requests to see something actually made with handspun yarn, so here's what I just finished!




The yarn is an off-white linen (flax) spun by me. I wasn't sure exactly what to do with it, or what to recommend that someone else do with it! I've been holding onto it for a while, though, so I decided to make a summer bag in this pretty crochet stitch I found.




I lined the inside with a really soft tan/gold fabric I found on sale for 29 cents at Wal-Mart!




And finally, a close-up:




The sewing is pretty terrible, but I think it's cute anyways! Thanks for looking!

Does it really matter what day it is? As long as there's yarn, it's all good!

Lots of spring-like colors so far.  Smiley TheGoodSheep - I love your first one!

Just one for me this week: Mill ends and superwash, unnamed so far...





Have a great weekend!

Wow! These are all soooo great this week! I need to build up more of a stash so I can make some of these crazy multi-color yarns. Here's what I have this week:

"Be Mine" - self-striping wool and nylon


"Hook, Line, and Sinker" - wool, nylon, and recycled plastic bottles (not what I was expecting it to be - it's very soft and squishy - also kinda difficult to spin...)

I love both the natural brown tones and the burst of color! I kind of went for the natural look this week too... with a little color thrown in...

Some natural-colored mill ends, blue and olive faux cashmere (nylon) with a little bit of blue and green firestar (sparkly nylon), plied with clear thread.




Can't wait to see the rest. Have a great weekend!

19  Glitter Trees in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by grayling40 on: January 06, 2008 07:17:32 PM
So I saw these tiny, cute painted Christmas trees with glitter at a craft show, and decided to try some of my own. My family loved them, so I "branched out" (pun intended!) to other types of trees as well, and thought I'd share some!

Cherry Blossom





Snow-covered





White birch tree in summer




Hope you enjoy! Happy New Year!

This is some unnamed, chunky correidale plied with white thread...



Have a great weekend!
