Inle_rah, those last 2 the same yarn? That would be sweet. They look the same. Either way, I think they would look great worn together.

And the shawl is super pretty! I hate making motifs and assembling them but I love the look of them. Your blocking is amazing, too! Wow! It makes me happy.

And to answer your question: I haven't made anything lately.

Oooh, inle_rah, your shawl is stunning!!  It looks like the yarn has a really beautiful drape.  I'm glad your tendonitis is better, because I love drooling over your finished projects!

Thanks!  The last 2 are from the same yarn.  I also did an entrelac hat from it a while back and still have a lot left, but I don't know what I am going to do with that yet.

I know what you mean about the motifs, too. I really like how they look, but having to do the center fiddly bits over and over again is annoying.  These were crocheted together as part of the last round of each motif, so at least I didn't have seaming to do.  Still, it took forever.  Smart move on my part to decide to spin a fingering weight yarn and then crochet the motifs on a B hook.  No wonder my tendons were angry at me.  Smiley

I haven't done too much blocking, and have no real space in which to lay anything flat where my cat won't get to it, so that was yet another challenge.  I ended up pinning it to some cloths and rolling it up so I could put it out of reach. I wasn't entirely sure it would work out ok, but thankfully it seemed to work.

I MADE SOMETHING! I MADE SOMETHING! I seriously thought about posting it as it's own topic in the crochet forum titled "I lost my virginity to a broomstick" because it's the first time I've used this technique but meh, I want to post it here instead.

Yarn:


It's a broomstick lace scarf. It's not very thick but I think it will still work for it's intended purpose. I got the pattern from Ravelry. It's call the "100 Yard Dash Scarf" because it's only supposed to use 100 yards and I supposedly had 105 yards. I changed it a little by going down the side when the pattern said I was done and doing the last row again on the back part of the foundation chain. It just didn't look finished without a ruffle on both sides!


Full length. My husband likes the way the colors go. I Just like it period.


Action shot!

Oh yeah, I just remembered I made a hat for my 2 year old with some merino/bamboo I spun up this summer. I need to photo and post that soon. I love this thread!

Who else has been busy with their handspun?

You're funny. I used an actual broomstick if that helps, just popped off the brush because there was a nob on the other end. If you don't have a broom then I guess yeah, a special tool would be appropriate.  Wink

Bella, what do you do with it all?! I so much prefer working with handspun yarn.

I hoard it, and pet it, and look at it. and dream up things to make.  Unfortunately for me, my default is fingering/lace, and I *hate* working with that weight LOL  But I've a craft sale so a lot of it will hit the table.

Broomstick lace can be done by using any large, round stick (like a broomstick).  I think what you're thinking of is the ... the ... I can't think of the name for it.  2 vertical metal rods and 2 horizontal plastic pieces top and bottom.

Play then cable your yarns for a bulkier weight!  It's all good.
