Fingerless mitts called "A little twist". This was my first experience with cabling, and I used the cabling without a cable needle method. This is a lovely pattern, I just might make a pair for myself. This pair was made from leftover yarn from the shawl I showed in an earlier post, and was intended to go to the same recipient. The box containing that shawl, another 7 ft tri-shawl, two pairs of socks and a neckwarmer seems to have gone astray in the mail system. I insured it, but all that work...it about makes me cry. I hope that whoever has it needed the warmth it provides.
This is woven on an 18 inch tri-loom. It is just the right size to fit around the neck and tuck into the coat. This is one ply of brown alpaca (Wooly Bear) and one ply of a commercial yarn.
The fabric up close.
Here is another. This yarn is an alpaca/merino wool/silk/mohair blend that I called "Stormy sky". I think this will look great worn with a jean jacket.
This is the finished skein of the llama/wool/silk blend shown in an earlier post. It may decide to become an Irish Walking Scarf.
Some dyeing has been done too.
Mohair locks from a friend's flock of angora goats. She always has a booth at Shepherd's Harvest, (a wool/fiber festival held in the spring) and has invited me to join her this year. I may take her up on that.
This is a blend of alpaca/wool/silk/nylon that I got back from the mill recently. It is intended as a sock yarn blend.
Here it is being spun up.
Here it is in my favorite blues/purples colorway. I never seem to tire of this combination.
