Fiber arts update time!
I’m not really thrilled about how this Downtown Cowl came out, but it’s very soft and warm, so my friend Kess (who sent me the fiber I spun and knit into this cowl) will hopefully enjoy it.
This is some Polwarth I traded a skein of finished yarn for. I love it, and need to figure out something to make myself from it. The Naiad said it reminded her of a book she read as a child, called Feather Fin. So the yarn colorway is named that now.
Today I started spinning this merino, in the WishFox Dyeworks colorway “Faire Day,” for someone who actually paid me to make them the yarn.
And I started a Freesia shawl for the Valkyrie and the Naiad to share, out of handspun merino. It’s nothing really worth looking at yet, but here is the beginning for posterity.
I’m not a fan of knitting lace, but this edging is very easy to memorize, and I can look at what I’ve done and see where I am. And I think it’s going to look cool. See the above link to the Freesia pattern to see what a completed one looks like. It’s stunning.
I still haven’t warped my loom. Must do that tomorrow…
