Our regularly scheduled Ten on Tuesday is on hiatus this week while our illustrious leader, Carole, is off on vacation this week.
However, since yesterday was a holiday, you get the Tuesday Edition of Make it Monday!
Last week, I finished the warp from before Christmas. I ended up with just under 50 inches of cloth. What to do with such an odd length – too short for a scarf. However, after being inspired by this gorgeous cowl, I thought I could incorporate some of those techniques into a small table scarf that will be perfect for Friday night Happy Hour!
I am happy to report that I have gotten over my fear of cutting my woven cloth! I trust that my setting of the fabric will prevent anything from instantly unraveling. I had some left over yarn from weaving that I will use to stitch decoratively down the center panel and around the edges.
This project will be perfect for catching up on the most recent episode of Downton Abbey!
Happy Tuesday everyone!
I am still working through the warp from before Christmas, and I have this lovely skein of yarn I spun from ITW. It is 75/25 BFL and Tussah Silk from their December 2014 Luxe Club, colorway ‘Flounce’.
I started weaving late yesterday and I hope to finish the remaining yarn today.
And finish the laundry.
I find pairing the fun with the mundane works well, don’t you?
Last week Monday saw the kick off (or cast on) to the #bangoutasweater knit along with Kay and Anne and Friday afternoon saw me bind off a complete sweater.
Yes, that is right, in 35 hours a sweater was born.
Yesterday, on my journey to Bang Out a Sweater I arrived at Sleeve Island. The seas were rough at the start as I tried to determine what increases worked best with the yarn.
Fortunately, Ysolda came to my rescue with this awesome edition of Technique Thursday.
Smooth sailing continues with practically invisible lifted increases.
Clue #3 won’t be here until tomorrow…
And this pile of yarn is singing her siren song LOUDLY…
Since patience was never one of my virtues
Warp winding to start shortly…
I am singing in a Christmas Concert today so there will be very little stillness in my world.
By the end of the day though, I will hopefully be sitting on my sofa enjoying the Christmas that is all around me, with some Christmas knitting in my hands.
I just love this time of year!
