Christmas star

I decided to join in making Chrismas toys on my Zoom Loom (from Schacht's blog).
The first toy - a tree top star. Mine is missing a button in the middle - need to buy one.

Spinning alpaca

After my first alpaca practice with warm and cozy results I am trying to spin the same yarn on a cotton/linen core.
It kind of works...

Flannel pants

Some time ago I found an easy pattern for pants on Pinterest. Decided to try as is. Turned out bad. The size was too small for me and on the whole there was something wrong with the pattern. After some amendments finally managed to make the pants wearable.
Love the fabric!

Christmas moose

I am trying to create my own cross-stitch design.
Not like this, of course,

Something less complicated.

Waffle weave on rigid-heddle loom

This is my contribution to the waffle weave on a RH loom. The project is from a Weaving Today free e-book.

This was a very pleasant experience. I followed the exact instructions.
2.5 metres of warp resulted in 5 towels (apx. 24x40 cm).

Warm and cozy

The slippers are done.
They are knitted from the first yarn I ever spun on my spinning wheel - happy practice is here.
The Alpaca sliver was a surprise part of Louet S90 I gon back in April.

Pink journey

I am finally done with my pink shawl.
It's knitted from 32/2 wool and acrylic (50/50) yarn, it took only 75g of yarn.
It was a long jurney - 11 months. I started it back in November 2013.
