Latest Project Off The Loom
Got this shawl off the loom just before lunch. Here’s a quick shot of it. I was really pleased with how the self-striping sock yarn worked out. It created a really nice muted stripe pattern. The purple and lime green really zip it up.
Andrew thought just throwing the shawl over the rocking chair was a good way to display it for a picture. He liked seeing my spinning wheel in the picture, too. What do you think?
The picture could be a little sharper, but it was a quick shot. The anti-shake feature on my camera doesn’t work when I turn off the flash. Don’t know why they made it like that.
Andrew wanted to go fishing this afternoon before the weather turns bitter cold. So I went with him and took a walk in the snowy woods. He almost caught a BIG steelhead, but his line broke, and it got away. I happened along right after he lost it, and he was not happy. But he’s pretty much recovered now, and vows to get it the next time. And he will, too.
When we got back, I worked in a few yarn ends on the shawl, and twisted the fringe on one end. I’ll finish the fringe on the other end tomorrow and then wet finish it. It always looks so different after you wash it and let it dry.
Already have my next project in mind! Burgundy and pink for the next one. Recycled yarn, of course!
Hope you all have a great New Year.
