Works in progress from my yarning hobbies.
Stripes and checkers baby blanket
Knit, acrylic, about 60% done. Everyone in the Young Women’s program at church knows I knit because I keep toting this along to activities.
Update: See the finished blanket in a later post. Completed Stripes and Checkers Baby Blanket
Inkle Project #6
It’s a belt commissioned by my sister. #10 crochet cotton, inkle-woven, with a celtic pickup pattern I derived from the one on norsegirl.com. Incidentally, you too can learn to inkle weave from her website.
Update: See the finished belt in a later post. Completed Endless Knots Inkle Belt
Tunisian crochet, wool, just begun. I fell in love with the texture of this variation of Tunisian crochet. It makes a very fluid fabric. Plus, my mother-in-law gifted me a bunch of great green wool.
And…the Infamous Tree Blanket
Tapestry crochet, acrylic.
I’ve worked on this sucker on and off since high school. Still only about 70% done. I’m not all that eager to finish, because it just doesn’t look as nice as I hoped. There isn’t enough contrast between the dark colors and the black background, and all those strings I carry along peek out everywhere.
Still, it forced me to learn to crochet left-handed (to maintain a front and back), so it’s not a total waste?
When the mood strikes me, I also spin.
The project I’m proudest of was a knitted alpaca hat for my dad, with wool from his own alpaca.
Can you spot the hat? Knitting it was only a small part of this project.
