Hi everyone! I'm new to this stitchalong, though I've been lurking for a little while and admiring everyone's work.  I've been wanting to do more stitching, and you have inspired me to complete this little project which I have been thinking about making for a few months.  The quote is from The Bloggess.

I dyed this fiber probably a couple of years ago:

And after having it sit in my stash for a while, spun it into this:

And then it sat around for a while, waiting for the right project to come along.  My co-worker is having a baby, so I made her this:

I gave it to her this week and she was so excited.   Smiley

Gorgeous yarns and batts.  I had my drum carder out recently and made this:


Which then became this:

Otherwise, I haven't been up to much lately. Not feeling very inspired for some reason.

Very pretty, I like the red and grey one.

I don't have anything finished this week, instead I have 3 different singles that I haven't figured out how to complete.  Maybe you guys will have some ideas.

This one might just end up staying like this.  I was thinking about plying it with another color, but nothing looks right yet.

The bobbin is a single of a fiber batt of unknown origin that I found in my stash. There wasn't very much of it, so I blended up the batt in the background to use in plying.  Will have to see how that goes.

This is another batt of unknown origin.  It is really bright and I'm not a huge fan of orange, so I haven't figure out what to do with it yet.

5  Candy Cane baby dress in Knitting: Completed Projects by inle_rah on: December 15, 2011 04:27:36 AM
My niece sent me a picture of a knit dress she had bought for her baby with a note to the effect of, "Wouldn't this look cute in candy cane stripes for Christmas?"  After searching around, I couldn't find a pattern that I liked, so I pretty much winged this one:

This is the first time I have done pleats and I am proud for figuring out how to make them on my own, since I was working the pattern from the top down, and all the instructions for pleating that I could find were from the bottom up.  Next time I will make the pleats deeper I think, but overall I am pleased at the results and can't wait to see my 1 year old great niece in this.  Smiley

Been a little quiet around here. Hope everyone is busy doing fun and creative things.

I have a project to share, which I started for the sheep to shawl contest and then was unable to finish in time due to a tendonitis flare up.  Yuck.  Anyway, I finally finished the shawl and thought I'd show it off.  Smiley

Here is the finished yarn, 1 ply BFL and 1 ply merino/tencel.  About 7.5 oz and 800 yards.

and the finished shawl:

I also finished these fingerless mittens:

and another queen anne's lace scarf:

so what have you all been up to?

Holy lot of yarn!  Those look fantastic.

I was not nearly so productive, and I'm late to the party, but I did have one new yarn this week.

Oooh. They are lovely.  I love the shading in the brown BFL.  So pretty.

I have 3 new yarns this week, even though it is now much too hot to make me feel like spinning.

This is from a batt of hand dyed fiber - it's got a bit of everything - merino, bfl, cashmere, firestar, etc....

Ectoplasm by inlerah, on Flickr
This is about an ounce of hand dyed bfl plied with glow in the dark thread. I've been trying to take a picture of it glowing in the dark, but thus far have been unsuccessful.

And this is from another batt of miscellaneous hand dyed fibers.  Both this one, and Dawn were among the first batts I carded on my drum carder, so I am kind of partial to them.

Beautiful yarns this week. I don't normally like yellow that much, but the variations in your yarn are lovely, Antsy.  And I love the merino/silk blend, it looks so soft and pretty.

I spent much of the last 2 weeks working on my sheep to shawl yarn, but after my fingers started cramping, I decided to take a break and spin some kind of sloppy, thick and thin singles.  Here they are before setting:

I also maybe half an ounce of the merino/tencel single I was using for my sheep to shawl yarn leftover, and as luck would have it, had a small amount of bfl laying around that seemed like it would work together, so I did this little skein:

Finished this hat sometime in the last couple of weeks, I went on vacation and have totally lost track of time.

Anyway, this yarn is spun from the very first fiber I ever got. It was a present from my friend who sold me her spinning wheel and taught me how to spin.

This picture shows the colors pretty well:

I still have a lot of this yarn left (it was almost 8 oz of fiber) and am thinking of doing a matching scarf.
