gah! what a shame I replaced my old shredder with a cross cut one!
this would be cool to try with those thin strips of paper!

oh, the 50-50 looks gorgeous - and if you're spinning that evenly there's no way you're still a "beginner" Cheesy

Well. Technically it's not quite friday where I am, but it is in most other places!

I finally finished a handspun project - and I had to spin extra yarn to finish it!  The ball of yarn on the keyboard in the photo collage is all I have left after binding off!

It's a wing of the moth shawl - spun from merino & angora with some sparkle - unfortunately no matter what I do, I can't get the sparkle to appear in the photos

I'm now contemplating spinning for another lace project....

Can't wait to see everyones creations (unless you guys are all quiet and resting up for Rhinebeck.  *sigh* I wish I could Rhinebeck!)

Smiley thanks everyone! I really enjoyed the knitting, and I'm going to enjoy the wearing too once it cools down Cheesy

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Handspun Wing of the Moth! on: October 18, 2007 02:36:05 PM

Hi everyone! I finally finished with my wing of the moth shawl Cheesy
The yarn is handspun singles, spun by me from batts in the Arizona Sycamore colorway from Spritely Goods as well as fibers handblended at the wheel (resulting in the more stripy colors at the edge of the shawl.

I did run out of yarn during the process of the knit and had to spin more - luckily I have plenty of fiber on hand Smiley

Needles used were US6 and after a rather aggressive blocking, the shawl is very big, at 7 feet 8 inches for a wingspan and it's about 46" from the top edge to the bottom tip.

Smiley thanks everyone.  I dont know what it is with Lace, but I just seem to have gotten hooked.  One of these days, though, I see myself slipping over to Cables Cheesy

I appear to be on a lace kick.  Not only have I finally cast on for Wing o the Moth, I've  recently finished this lace project.   

The pattern is called Wabenschal
The yarn is Spritely Goods Sylph in limited edition Spring Chaparral Colorway
Knit on US 8 needles

It's a scarf, though I suppose it can be used as a table runner.  It's actually a really long parallelogram rather than just a rectangle, which is why you see the slanting of the colors in the photo.  It was a pleasure to knit, and it was quick to finish.  I had to block it twice to try to "shorten" it (by stretching it more in it's width to force the length to "shrink") since I'm no good at guessing finished length in lace projects such as this.

I also am in the process of attempting to select yarn and beads for Secret of the Stole - if you want to check those choices out and help me make my decision, the yarns are posted on my blog

Wow, that really is a lovely lace stitch! Did you really just make it up (awe).
I didn't create the individual lace patterns - I wound up figuring out how to combine them into the scarf Smiley I'm not clever enough (yet Wink ) to create lace motifs from scratch!
