 Roll Eyes I'm having a lot of fun with the loom you sent me lmf! So far I've only woven one thing which I promptly cut up for a pendant idea I had...it didn't turn out so well, but I'm definitely going to try again soon and actually weave maybe some coasters (we have none! I have no idea how that happened). I must admit I've been a little distracted with trying to get some personal swaps and an angel package put together. And my crocheting! I finished my first scarf!  Grin It's nothing major but I'm proud of myself considering I utterly failed at knitting. I'm going to bring my crochet book and some yarn on the plane and try to teach myself some other stitches. My goal is to make a blanket for me and the bf so we don't completely freeze this winter!

Anyway, when I get back from my trip I'll definitely hit up the weaving some more. Or maybe tonight...hmmmm...actually that does sound good. I don't have any major projects to work on. Maybe you'll get some pictures soon after all  Cheesy I'm still waiting on a book from the library to learn some weaving patterns so its not so plain jane.

And I have all my claims packed up and ready to go to the PO tomorrow after work!  Cheesy

Eliea, I got the turtle listed in my store. You've got first dibs, if you like it.

And I'm pooped out, so I'm heading to bed. I'll upload the rest of my goodies tomorrow morning. Have a great Friday night, everyone!

I'm knitting on the remainder of some store-bought wool yarn that I received as a gift from Eliea into a scarf.  I used it on earflaps on a hat that I knitted from some handspun yarn of freestyle.

I can't tell you how awesome it is to see something made from my handspun! Makes me want to go practice my knitting!!

Go Girl!!!

And I don't technically qualify your first handspun as 'newbie'  It's just too consistant!!!  You have a knack for fiber arts, I tell ya!

If anyone would be interested in making a knitted DNA scarf like this one as a custom order, please PM me:

This one was by superhooker, but alas, she is not in the swap this round!

The pattern can be found here:

I love DNA and I love scarves, so I would absolutely love to have one of these to wear this winter! Smiley

I've got an item that needs folks' input - it's a palm leaf-style binding that I'm listing an inchie display--

First, though, it needs something more, and I don't know what. Some kind of altering. Any ideas?

Secondly, the way I learned to make this "book" says to have it tied tight enough to only make one page viewable at a time, which looks like this:

Does that seem okay, or would it look better/be more practical for the ribbon to be looser so all the pages can lie flat?

I'm living/working in Yosemite Nat'l Park til further notice! Blogging about it here. No swapping for me, and minimal crafting time, for the coming months. Graduated from library school! That sums things up for now.

i might do a DNA cowl....a cabled scarf would just take too long...
all this working is tiring me out i tell ya!

I chatted a bit with the other knitter-barista and she warmed up to me a little bit since i got her talking about yarn and showed her some socks i knit. haha. crafts just bring the world together!

tomorrow i sleep in and then go have a nice breakfast with my boyf and catch up on all the tv I have missed. ha!
