Pink shawl is finished. It was such a pleasure to weave. I tried to prolong the pleasure as I could.
Two yards of exceptional softness.
Yarn - Alpaca/Sick blend and Mohair/silk blend, one is better than the other.
Plain weave with Spanish lace on my Schacht Rigid-heddle loom.
Stitched on 32 Belfast in Spruce colour.
10 August - 19 October 2016
Pure joy to stitch. The only problem was I ran out of one color beads and they are not readily available here, had to wait for a week to finally finish her.
(I wish my picture were better quality, but somehow blogger makes them worse).
How do I know that the winter is really coming (or at least autumn)? The moment I feel comfortable enough to dig out my wooly crafty projects.
The pink shawl is slowly moving along. More than a half is woven.
Half of the Mondrian latch hook rug is waiting for its second half since April.
A lot needs to be done with the Vermont Winter hooked rug. It came to a halt after unexpectedly I ran out of black wool. I guess this means that I did something wrong, probably, I hooked a bit too tight. Another worry is that I may run out of other colours too.
And the last wooly thing. My nice and warm KnitPicks Palette socks need mending. I may try to sqeeze another year out of them.
