1  Re: Fiber Friday 4/27 in Spinning: Completed Projects by Necia on: April 27, 2007 08:52:12 AM
Hi Everyone,

Long time no post, but that hasn't stopped me from viewing and aweing over Fiber Friday entries.  This week I can share something.
What started off as this

8 ozs of Paradise Fiber Microblend, consists of 95% superwash wool and 5% nylon.  Colorway is Raspberry mocha.  Spun into this

and here's another shot for clarity

All I can say is those are lace weight singles.  Not too sure of the yardage because I haven't measured yet.  The plan is to turn it into a lace shawl.  I'm glad I have more of this fiber, because I would rather my shawl be bigger than smaller.

Thanks for letting me share, now I'm off to view the other entries.

I finished the back, late last night

Hopefully I can finish the fronts in the next few days.

Ok I can't wait any longer for someone with more to offer to start this thread.  I humbly present you 1 lone skein, that I spun, and then dyed this week.


4 ozs Henry Attic Superwash Merino.  Sport Weigthish, about 180 y.  Used Wiltons, and a little bit of acid dyes for this.  Calling my 1st colorway Under The Kitchen Sink, because I grabbed dyes, and just called it a day.  No real inspiration at all.  Surprised by the outcome, but will always love it, as this is my 1st spin to knit, and dyed yarn.

Now, what should I knit with it?

Ok, whose next?

4  I Made A Sha Sha Dream Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Necia on: July 08, 2006 07:35:32 AM
Last week at work, I was bored, so I had the misfortune on clicking on the thread that contained all the awesome tutorials. Man oh man why did I do that.  The next day I had work to do, and I was still busily clicking around Craftster instead of working.  Anyway, here's my completed project.  This is my 3rd sewing project, following a tutorial.  The 1st 2 thingies I made I just sorta winged.  I really enjoyed this bag, and see a dozen more in my future.
  I totally forgot to take a picture of the lining, but it is plain blue solid cotton fabric. 

Thanks for looking

I'm on a roll today, bringing back buried threads.  Well I may be late, but at least i finally jumped on the bandwagon.

Mama E Cyber Fibers
Colorway Bird

I used a size 1.5 or a 2.5mm.  If there is a next time, I will use a size 0.  Done via magic loop one at a time.

Thanks for looking.

Hi all,

Here's my completed Ticovoli from Grumperina.

I started last week, and finished just last night.  Determined to wear it, I did't bother to block.  Thanks for looking!

8  Maryella Bracelet in Knitting: Completed Projects by Necia on: April 20, 2006 10:19:05 AM
Hi All,

Here's a picture of Knitty's Maryella bracelet.  This bracelet was so addicting to make.  Notice how comfortable it looks draped around my wrist.  Too bad, I have to gift it.  It's ok, because I started on another one for me, myself, and I already.

Thanks for looking.

Here's mine.  I finished this on Sunday.  The only thing I did different was double strand the ribbing, and drop a needle size for it.  I like how it turned out, I just wish the waist had a little more shaping to it.  A co-worker suggested I run some elastic along the inside of the shirt, not to sure about that, so I'm open to other suggestions.

Looks great!  I'm using Patons Grace too.  Any blocking recommendations?  Let me see if I can drag up a progress shot.
  I should be at the ribbing in the next few days.
