Little beauties

First question I asked myself after buying 12 tiny hand-dyes cottons - what to do with them?
Solution: Handkerchiefs with crochet cotton edging.

At first I was planning just to add simple edging to every cloth square

Although thread balls were very tiny, there was enough thread for an embellishment. Every hankie got its doily.

Apirka socks

In order to practice Fair Isle knitting I bought Apirka sock kit.
As a result - wonderful warm and soft long socks.

My first table loom project

After a year of using my Schacht flip rigid heddle loom, I decided that  I need something more serious.
My next choice became Ashford 8 shaft 36" wide table loom.
First project - Star Towels from Handwoven magazine.
