Hooray, finished projects to share! After a long (for knitting projects and me) and somewhat bumpy relationship, the Seaglass Wrap is finished. I cast on, the first time, all the way back in September 2011. Checking back through my photos, I started spinning the yarn back in the Fall of 2010. It seems longer ago. This isn't a great picture, no sunshine and blocking on the lounge but today is about catching up.
Over the weekend, this was started and finished; Okay nearly finished. I need to clean up the tails and fringe.
But I didn't ply all of it together with itself. The light purple bit, and the brown bit, those were spun from batts I carded at the same workshop. (We did this after dinner a couple of nights. Best. Dessert. Ever.) And then plied with the aforementioned color study yarn. This is like playing with magic. Really really good magic. The kind of magic that pops open the little doors in my brain, throws wide open windows of opportunity. "Look! Look! Look what is possible." I'm a sucker for this stuff. Oh, the yarn that insisted I weave it? The browish colored bit over to the right. Impossible (so far) for me to photograph accurately, I'd love to make an entire garment from fabric just like this. A quest is born.
