Moar Yarn!

I’ve just listed another 12 DeStash Yarn listings in my Etsy shop and I’m about to list a ton of hand spun art yarn! Need a little fun accent on a project? Love to use fiber as a medium? Just want to buy all the yarns and pet and stare at them all day?! Come check out what I’ll be posting tonight! Here’s a sneak peak!

Spinning done, knitting next.

I have finally finished the spinning for my Peaks and Valleys scarf. All I have to do now is start knitting! It’s almost finished, about 50% done. Next up after that is to finish the Snapdragon Flip-tops from Ysolda.

Spinning for Peaks and Valley Scarf

I have almost finished the spinning for my Peaks and Valley scarf, made from Dicentra Designs color way October. The fiber is blue faced Leicester, so soft and an awesome spin! Can’t wait until I can get this one finished! It’s on the top of the list.

Projects to Finish

I have quite a few projects that I would like to finish before I start any more knitting projects. A few of them have been in the works for a long time! Now that I don’t have school to occupy all of my time, I can focus on getting them done!
The first on the list is the Peaks and Valleys scarf. The pattern is on Ravelry. I started working on this one over a year ago. I spun the yarn from some fiber purchased from Dicentra Designs. I adore this color combination and think that it looks great with the pattern. I spun it very thin and Navajo plied it to keep the colors together.

I started The Traveling Woman shawl back before October 2010. I was going to use it as a wedding shawl, but the weight seemed too heavy for a wedding shawl so I decided to put it on hold. The yarn is a gorgeous merino silk blend. I think it is from Louet, but I can’t remember for sure. It’s been a while since I spun it.

And this last one is from Ysolda Teague, her Snapdragon Flip-Tops. I started these just after I made the Snapdragon Tam, but only got one finished. Just like a pair of socks, I can only ever seem to get one done at a time. But it’s on my list of things to finish this summer!

Of course I have a million other projects on the needles right now, but I really don’t have the time to put all of them on here. I have most of them up on Ravelry, so if you’re in that neighborhood, look me up! ^_^

Mrs. Weasley’s Sweater

It has been a long time coming but Matt is one step closer to getting my mom’s sweater done. He has all of the sweater pieces knitted, and with the help of Nicole, the sleeves are done! All there is to do now is to sew the pieces together and weave in all the ends and it will be a finished sweater!
