Catch Up Time - Spinning

Ok....so a little of the recent spinning...bulky and art mode.

First, Sea Turtle from Spinning Moon Farm




Next, Harvest plied with a rayon yarn from Dicentra Designs

A little bulky Turtle Twist from Dicentra Designs.




And finally, a medley of colour all spun together bulky...thick and thin...with no thought and plied with black.  Fun to play with.

Catch Up Time - Ocean Cowl

Ok......so I've been very absent from blogging but only because I've been knitting up a storm...so here they come.  This first cowl is a take on my Infinity Cowl pattern, using a few more stitches, a size 15 needle and the yarn still doubled up.  The yarn is lucious and heavenly to knit.  A definite do over.  http://olivemermaids.blogspot.com/2010/02/infinity-cowl.html...http://www.ravelry.com/yarns/library/blue-moon-fiber-arts-luscious-single-silk

Curlique Baby

Ok....just a really fun project to knit.  Just knit and purl, but the short rows and shaping made it interesting and fast.

















This is the best representation of the true colour

Ombre Cowl

Ok....so I tried to make this once before and got a little too fancy for my own good....and hated it.  It was horrendous...  This I am much happier with and actually finished it.  Soft and a true Ombre.
