I’ll get to the title stuff in a minute. First up, some finished yarns – these are the last of some corriedale that I dyed up a while back, and finished spinning a little while ago.
I loooove this red/purple/brown combo. It actually came out quite soft, so I’m sort of contemplating some socks out of it.
Yellow/blue/green. Also very cool.
Here’s both, plus a skein from a couple months ago. I think I want to do something with all of them – but what?? Suggestions welcome!
And here’s a shot of bpt. See the front cables? They sure don’t match the directions of the ones in the photo. I don’t know what gives, but something is wrong with the order of the cable crosses. Oh well, it’s fine.
Mmmmmkay. So. It’s 2/3 of the way through November and I’m just NOW getting requests for knitted Christmas gifts. I’d planned a few already, but now my family’s asking for stuff! Stuff that I need to buy yarn for! Stuff such as a garment! Stuff in cotton, because they won’t wear wool!
mom: a black cotton shrug (the fiery bolero from the summer Interweave in either Elann Connemara or TLC Cotton Plus
sister #1: Gryffindor scarf – will be inaccurate, which is fine with her. I was thinking TLC Cotton Plus in red and gold. HP-ers, what do you think?
sister #2: socks (already in progress, and that was already planned) and a black earflap hat
auntie E: felted wool clogs
auntie J: dunno yet, must be cotton
girl cousin #1: Pasha!
girl cousin #2: cabled armwarmers in leftover Cotton Fleece
boy cousins 1 and 2: some kind of toy from Jess Hutchison’s booklet – I’m thinking robots, from stash yarn
ETA: I dug around in the stash and came up with a ball of that red TLC stuff, and yeah, it’s too bright red. I did find a suitable one though, in Butterfly cotton, so all I need is some gold and I’m gold!
How many of these are done? NONE.
I need me some 1-877-SOS-KNIT.
