Got a good deal of knitting accomplished on the plane this week! This wee baby Gramps cardi for a friend's newborn has been languishing as I struggled to choose a contrast color to compliment my Exploding TARDIS handspun - @twill_nh to the rescue with this Juniper Moon Stratus which is absolutely perfect 👌. Sleeves completed and yarn chicken won (that tiny tail is all that is left!), band almost complete, just elbow patches and pockets after that. Believe it or not, this is the first Actual Thing I have made out of Exploding TARDIS. It makes me so happy. I think one of my TDF goals for this year should be to go ahead and make things from my favorite colorways. It's about time I did more "shopping" from my own shop!
Last spring I took a tapestry weaving class and scrounged other people's trash for yarn scraps and bits of wool roving. Yesterday I took the bits of roving and spun them up. Today I'm weaving then into tiny squares. There's only enough for maybe 3 but they are special indeed. #trashtotreasure#useitup#zerowaste#squamlove#woollove#zoomloom
Newest colorway on Rambouillet/Silk. A couple things: 1 - do we keep this OOAK or add it to the repeatable roster, and 2 - any ideas on what to name this result? Would love your thoughts! (6 braids available, $28/each) #createdbyelsieb
Another shot from the natural Dyeing workshop courtesy of @wingandaprayerfarm and @bluepepperfarm from left to right we have coreopsis, marigold, avocado pit, onion skins, and blood root. Spoiler alert 🚨 they ALL came out beautiful!
