Snipping the end bits from a yarn project is the longest part of a project. You can see the finish line but you’re oh-so-far from it.
My Rainbow /Sherbert Blanket was one of my favourites, for many reasons, but mostly for the bright colours of the yarn. Even the bits that were snipped off and left in a pile were pretty.
When I placed a glass cup coaster on top of one pile it caught my imagination. I do like how it’s out-of-focus, kind of dreamy, I can imagine what they yarn can turn into.
That’s my favourite thing about yarn…. the possibilities. A few balls of yarn and a spark of imagination and you could create anything!
This is another from my stash that was gifted to me. It’s lovely but what do I make with just one ball of it? (Still, haven’t figured out what to make with last weeks Bunny Tail yarn.)
This yarn is so soft but I have NO idea what to create with it.
I just love this yarn! The light not only brings out the sparkle but different hues from a rich midnight blue to a bright ocean blue! Photos do not do this yarn justice!!
Welcome. Come on in. What can I get you to drink? Coffee, tea? Maybe an ice tea?
April has been a whirlwind month. Whole weeks have just disappeared!
I did finish my blue shawl for the Gala I attended. The yarn was a different dye lot but I couldn’t see a difference when I used the new balls.
I love this yarn. I used Vanna White Glamour in Sapphire. A stunning yarn full of sparkle. It’s hue changed with the light. Everything from a midnight blue almost black next to my black dress to a bright ocean blue in the sunlight.
I think the darker yarn and not taking the time to block it gave my shawl a different look from the original pattern. I do want to try Fortune’s Shawlette again. This corner to corner pattern worked up quickly and I’d love to see it in a different colour.
Then just before Easter when it was time to deliver the Sherbert and Cream blanket. My friend asked for a media pouch to be made. She was giving the blanket to her cousin’s little girl and wanted a gift for another child.
This was the first time I added a zipper to my work. It felt kind of awkward. I think if the occasion arises in future I’ll plan better. I think sewing the zipper in first then finishing the pouch would have been better.
Then it was time to pick up our daughter from university. I just didn’t believe how quickly her first year would go. In September it felt like she’d be away for an eternity. When we got up there to get her she was still sick and no help packing her belongings. Which wouldn’t have been bad expect her room is a city block over and 4 flights of stairs up from the doors.
Since she’s been home I haven’t picked up a new project. I think in May I’ll work on finishing a couple of my half done projects.
What was on your hook this month?
This yarn was donated to me. I don’t know what brand it is but like the other yarns from Wooly Wednesday…it’s in my stash.
It was going to be thrown out because the label had been lost. (GASP! Throw out yarn?! shudder) It’s lovely and soft. I’ve made a few scarves and headbands out of it.
Hope your day includes some yarn art!
