Very pretty, I like the red and grey one.

I don't have anything finished this week, instead I have 3 different singles that I haven't figured out how to complete.  Maybe you guys will have some ideas.

This one might just end up staying like this.  I was thinking about plying it with another color, but nothing looks right yet.

The bobbin is a single of a fiber batt of unknown origin that I found in my stash. There wasn't very much of it, so I blended up the batt in the background to use in plying.  Will have to see how that goes.

This is another batt of unknown origin.  It is really bright and I'm not a huge fan of orange, so I haven't figure out what to do with it yet.

Everything is gorgeous. I particularly like Clouds at Twilight and the super coils. Great job!

That looks gorgeous. I hope to have a car soon and be able to get to my studio, where my spinning wheel is. I miss her so.
16  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Candy Cane baby dress on: December 15, 2011 04:27:36 AM
My niece sent me a picture of a knit dress she had bought for her baby with a note to the effect of, "Wouldn't this look cute in candy cane stripes for Christmas?"  After searching around, I couldn't find a pattern that I liked, so I pretty much winged this one:

This is the first time I have done pleats and I am proud for figuring out how to make them on my own, since I was working the pattern from the top down, and all the instructions for pleating that I could find were from the bottom up.  Next time I will make the pleats deeper I think, but overall I am pleased at the results and can't wait to see my 1 year old great niece in this.  Smiley

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.

Been a little quiet around here. Hope everyone is busy doing fun and creative things.

I have a project to share, which I started for the sheep to shawl contest and then was unable to finish in time due to a tendonitis flare up.  Yuck.  Anyway, I finally finished the shawl and thought I'd show it off.  Smiley

Here is the finished yarn, 1 ply BFL and 1 ply merino/tencel.  About 7.5 oz and 800 yards.

and the finished shawl:

I also finished these fingerless mittens:

and another queen anne's lace scarf:

so what have you all been up to?

I love that kerchief!
I feel the same way when i do spinning at open studios, sometimes i can deal with the "come see the artist in her natural habitat" ambience, and sometimes i just want to do my thing and not have to talk to anyone.  Smiley

Sadly, a bad flare up of tendonitis kept me from finishing on time, and i probably won't be done 'til next week, but i am enjoying seeing everyone else's work!
