This was some chunky wool that Lisa dyed.
Here was some roving and alpaca sock weight that she painted.
This was some roving that Cindy did. We have a spin date set for tonight, so we will get to see how this looks spun up.
This was some alpaca that was a tan color. She had bought a couple of bags of this and had already made a vest in some of it. She wanted to change the color for another project. We overdyed it with terracotta.
This is some worsted weight wool that I painted for a Simple Colorplay shawl. It is being sent to a friend who right now has a hectic life. She longs to knit, but she only has time for knitting that can be done on auto-pilot knitting, so I am sending her a warm hug of yarn and my Simply Colorplay Shawl pattern.
Does the shawl next to the pan of yarn look familiar? That is my Gail that I made for Mary Kathleen. The yarn in the tub is the same yarn, but I overdyed it with a dark red. It looks like shades of deep, rich wines. It is destined to be another Gail. I just did not want someone else having one exactly like Mary Kathleen's. I love this yarn. It was meant for another Gail Shawl.
I will use plum iridescent beads on this one.
I sat down this morning and made a list of WIP/UFO (works in progress/unfinished objects). I am trying to finish up some projects and destash and organize my MESS!
I have an 8-harness table loom with stand, a knitting machine, a drum carder and tons of yarn that I will be getting rid of soon. I want to be able to get in my loom room and find stuff. I am sorting stuff today.
I have Lisa and Cindy coming over tonight to spin. I will set up my tri loom and finish the shawl on it. I want to be able to break that loom down and get it out of the way. It takes up half the loom room floor space. I will send it home with Sue (one of my other fiber buddies) to live with her awhile. It will be safe, out of my way, and enjoyed.
This week, I need to work on my heart quilt, finish warping the looms with Alyssa, organize my loom room, finish the crocheted yokes on the little girl dresses, etc.....
Traveling Shawl progress--It is now been to Idaho and is now on its way to WY .
