Back to spinning


Yarn spun from fibers purchased at Southern Indiana Fiber Art Festival
Very easy pattern, love the way the handspun looks in this stitch pattern.

A lesson in Double Knitting

Yarn: Plymouth Yarn Encore Colorspun Worsted

10/14/09 Cast on. Trying to learn the whole ‘double knitting’ thing. Got this great yarn and a really COOL scarf pattern that is double knitting ….. so…. gotta learn how first. I thought this would be a good intro project, and I’m glad I’m doing it, reading from the chart, on the flip side of the knitting is a TRIP! It’s like knitting in 3D, don’t know how else to describe it. This frog pattern called for cotton and I have some left over Encore from my Hanne vest, so I’m using it and not worried about ‘gauge.’ So, in other words, this pot holder is HUGH!!!

Fear of Commitment Cowl

Still have yarn left over from Southern Indiana Fiber Art Festival. Found this great pattern to use the rest of this yarn up….still have yarn left. It’s the magical skein, you keep knitting and knitting and the ball of yarn never gets any smaller!!!
