I already posted these in the knitting thread, but figured I'd share them here as well!

landscape, for a painter-friend of mine:


many different fibers went into this painting; local llama, local cormo, local merino, local shetland, mill end wool, mohair, and a bit of superwash wool.


the business of being born (I started naming my hats after the documentary I watched whilst knitting. is that weird?? har har, some of them are a little bizarre...) hmm I can't find the picture of the other yarn I used... erg.



this one is for a good friend of mine who lost her family (llamas, sheep, goats, horses, bunnies) due to a silly technicality. I want her to know, she is appreciated for being such a loving lady, so I knit her a hat with her very own llama fiber!



hat knitting is soooo cathartic. I don't use any patterns, so they turn out whatever size and shape they want. I let the yarn decide :-)

I just finished a few more, so I'll post them soon!

I love them!  I, too, let my fiber tell me how it wants to be spun, then what creation it wants to become.  I have a fabulous pink/dark blue handspun that I've started 3 projects with ... I'm about to frog the 3rd attempt.  I don't know what it wants to be!!!  Nix on the cell phone purse, nix on the cabled scarf, nix on the smaller simple scarf.

Tonight, I'm going to try it as a drop stitch scarf.  It's for one of my friend's 4 yo twins.  I know the yarn is destined for her.... maybe a hat???  hmmmm

sheepy, only if you plaster every inch of our home with your incredible artwork! (didn't we decide on marriage a year or so ago? ;-P)

also, my attention span is far too short. we might as well go down the aisle in our skivvies, wrapped in handspun yarn!
