Heavens, it’s been a while! I have a dress to make before the 11th of June, so I will keep my gibbering brief.
The first order of business is that I have renewed the listings in my Etsy shop, and added a whole lot of new inventory, many of which are recent spins! I’m trying to spin 14 pounds of yarn this year and so far, I am just about on track–but it’s quite impossible to use it all myself. My handspun drawer is beginning to overflow, so I really do need to move some of this squooshy stuff.
I’ve been bitten quite badly by the gradients-and-lace bug; this may or may not come up in the future.
Finally, the main point of this post–snowflake twill scarves. I put on a 5-yard 8/2 tencel warp in silver to make two, one with grey laceweight bamboo weft, and one with medium blue 8/2 tencel. Without further ado, the whole affair in photos:
The graphite scarf already has a loving home, but the blue one is also in the shop!
