I have more yarn finished! Yeah, I'm counting each one as a project since they take awhile to do. It took me two hours just to ply!  In order of finished;

Another purple one but this one is much better (the one on the bottom). The top one was only 40 yards, but the second was 120 yards.


I then switched to a different color. Still 100% Merino but this one is superwash. The one on the left is two ply and 207 yards and the one on the right is thick and thin single for weaving, 212 yards.



I have my loom warped and ready to use that thick and thin. I'm making my nephew a monster for his birthday. It was last week but his party is on Saturday. I've never made one before but always wanted to. I'm hoping it turns out okay.

I made my girls matching scarves from a pattern I found on Ravelry! I am slowly learning to read patterns better.



They wore them to school today, which makes my heart happy!

Pretty scarves. They look like a bunch of hearts stacked together.

Beautiful yarn!

I made another hat  Grin the ever popular Divine http://www.rheatheylia.com/index.php?page=patterns&PHPSESSID=31b01275b5378cf8fc7f4a63a9af794e

It seemed to take a lot of yarn I thought I had enough of the first colour then realised I'd need a second and then a third! They were only oddments though not full skeins.
I'm tempted to keep it although I don't usually wear neutrals it looks OK on me  Grin

vampedangel - that yarn is to DIE for Smiley hoping to be able to get my brand new, untried spindle out soon, and would love to produce something even approaching that, both in colour and in texture - I just want to get my hands right in there!

I have SO much catching up to do - lots done but not posted - will catch up the other groups, then I can link to them here, and just put thumbnails here, or the post will take a whole page :p Shocked Roll Eyes

vampedangel14, that yarn is gorgeous. I love the purple.

deathbefore dishes, I really like the scarf. It looks perfect for Valentine's Day.

kookaloo_starr, love the hat. I'd never be lucky enough to have enough yarn in colors that go together.

michelleandbean, I wasn't sure they'd work together to be honest. It came out much nicer than I thought  Grin
I have loads of oddments that need using up so I see a lot of stripes in my future yarn crafts.
