Here are the 3 I made this weekend.
The red is mohair double stranded.
The first green and blue is yarn I spun.
The second green and blue is yarn I dyed.

So here is my first attempt at single plying yarn.
I let it dry with a water bottle hanging from it and seems to have helped the crinky ness.
I am getting better but I am want to get some fiber that is machine processed beacuse it is so much easier to draft. But I can't bring myself to buy more sense I still have a good five pounds of fiber.

I don't have a before picture, but here is my after picture.

My rule of thumb is that my stash is not out of control as long as fits in my Ikea toy storage dohiky.

I also have a small basket of stuff that I've spun in the last month, but I don't think it counts.

14  Baby Pumpkin Hat (with pattern link and better pictures) in Knitting: Completed Projects by theresa24 on: February 04, 2007 10:52:18 PM
I wanted to make my friends baby one of these hats, but I could not find a pattern that I liked.

So I came up with my own pattern:



I didn't make another one yet, but here is the pattern:

16  What to do? Blocking and ribbing question.. in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by theresa24 on: February 03, 2007 08:31:55 PM
I just finished this shrug.



And I messed up the pattern beacuse I should have made the shoulders bigger beacuse it makes the neck to big and stretched out. I wanted it to look more like a tight fitting turtle neck.

My normal method for blocking is wet blocking (dump it in water and reshape it and let it dry) but I've done very very very bad things to ribbing with doing that. So should I block it with water, or a steam irron?

HELP! Months and months have been spent on this dam thing.

Back in July, I made a pledge to my self and to others that I would buy any more yarn until my stash had decreased considerably.
After crocheting a BUNCH of granny square blankets for Christmas I have a stash that fits in 1 basket! 1 medium size basket.

One thing that I've done to work thru the odd balls which I have had a lot of was knit this scarf.


I also crochet this blanket

Anyone have experience with over dying?



I had 4 balls left from a project and I was so sick of the color.

I am happy with the results but its a little uneven in the color distribution.
