Loot!

From last Saturday's Fall Fibre Shindig. Project bags from Two Stix and Ewe, and yarns from two local dyers: The Fibre Goddess (top four bulky skeins) and Sea Turtle Fibre Arts (package of rainbow-speckled small skein plus black skein). Was being "good" and restricting myself -- mostly -- to a shopping list this time. (was very useful that most of the vendors were using Instagram to show off what they were bringing) This entry was originally posted at https://jlsjlsjls.dreamwidth.org/1387253.html.

Squishies!!!

New handspun from Black Sheep Goods arrived in the mail on Thursday. A single worsted weight skein in two parts named "Dark Tide" (100% Bluefaced Leicester wool, 490 yards, 2-ply). Destined for shawlhood, but need to decide on a pattern.

Knitting progress ...

This has grown a bit since you last saw it. Now bordering on too big to fit into the camera view; may have to stand on a chair in future. Or put it on the floor (which means vacuuming thoroughly first 'cause I shed more than any pet ever did and last thing I need to be doing is getting my hair out of this). Grey stripes alternating getting lighter/darker is now very visible and the colourful side continues through its own version of the rainbow.

New squishies!!! Plus playing with brioche

In my mailbox tonight: gorgeous handspuns (and extras) from Black Sheep Goods

And playing around with patterned yarns and brioche knitting. The grey side will be striped, starting with alternating medium greys; the stripes alternate getting lighter or darker until the final pair are very pale, almost white, and charcoal. The side that's currently blues and greens is going to progress to yellows, oranges, pinks, purples and back to blues.
