11  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Handspun blankie on: April 20, 2007 10:39:47 AM
I knit this blanket for my daughter.  It is Maid Marrion colorway from Spunky Eclectic that I spun in a sport/sock weight and knit using US 7 needles.  It is a 5 stitch entrelac.

12  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / "Stocking" Cap pattern? on: April 06, 2007 10:52:20 AM
I have seen online somewhere a pattern for a stocking cap that is the shape of an actual sock.  I thought I had saved the link, but now I can't find it!  When I did a google search it brought up every hat pattern but that one  Cry  Does anybody have the link?
13  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Handspun Lady Eleanor on: March 20, 2007 02:41:39 PM

This is my second Lady E.  She is made from 8oz of Merino in the Forecast colorway from Spunky Eclectic that I spun a few weeks ago.  She was made on #10.5 needles with 10 stitch squares and she is 7 squares acrosss.  She is so light weight and lacy, but still warm enough to keep out a chill.
14  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Celtic knot cap on: February 16, 2007 06:19:36 PM
I made this cap last night.  The pattern is from http://www.girlfromauntie.com and I spun the yarn.  It is actually more green in person than in the photo

15  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / setting singles on: February 02, 2007 01:32:20 PM
I am thinking of venturing into the world of singles, but I am worried that when I pull it off the Niddy Noddy to set the twist, it will just untwist into a mess.  I have thought about leaving it on the Noddy and steaming the yarn to set it, but that makes me worried that I will ruin the finish on my Noddy.  I am just turning into a knot of worry.  I KNOW there is a way to do this.
16  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Fiber Friday 1/19 on: January 19, 2007 06:46:18 AM
So I get to start the thread this week.  I spun up this merino yarn this week. I adore how it came out. I am naming it Rose Garden because it is is this deep rose with occasional sprinkling of dark velvety green. It has the look and feel of a fresh long stemmed red rose

17  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / How much yardage is enough? on: November 02, 2006 10:26:35 AM
I have been spinning for a while now, I have been perusing the handspun yarn that is for sale in various places.  I am a crocheter and crochet eats yardage, but I see the average length for sale is about 4 oz/100 yards.  I know knitting uses less yarn.  Is it actually possible to get a completed project from that small bit of yarn, or are people looking for larger lots of yarn?
18  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / The Plying Paddle on: October 17, 2006 03:28:38 PM
I know, that sounds like some Kinky S&M spinning thing, but it is actually a prety cool looking device!  It is for plying a single back on its self without having to wind it into a center pull ball first.  I had to share it with you guys!

There is a video of how it works here http://rakestrawspinner.com/  and it is inexpensive to buy, but I was thinking it would be a fun challenge to make one myself!
