Fiber Stuff

9 Apr

You might remember that I was planning on taking an advanced weaving class through the fiber mill, but that has been cancelled due to the Covid19.  I will try to take it when they can reschedule after thinks get better.  It wasn’t long after the class was cancelled that I got a message that the fiber I delivered to the mill last summer was ready to be picked up!  I was very excited about that.  I had all of Maybeline and Odie’s fleece turned into cored yarn.

Odie, Maybeline, and Maybeline

Now I can use it for more rug projects!  I have also been knitting in the evenings when I have time.  I started a new project.  When it’s done, it will be a kimono style sweater.  I’m not brave enough to try sleeves yet.

Unfortunately, I think I need one more skein of each color, so I decided to order it online so I didn’t have to leave the farm.  Hopefully, it will be here by the time I need it.  Since I was ordering yarn, I decided to order a lighter yarn to do a similar summer sweater.  This is the pattern I will use, but the yarn will be different.

Maybe I’ll get brave enough to try actual arm holes and sleeves some day.

And while I’m waiting for my yarn to be delivered, I am playing with the pattern above as an infinity scarf.
