Projects, Projects, Projects

I've been a busy girl this week.

I finally procured the yarn that I need to finish the work on Squidette's blanket ... and am actually working on it.

I added a few inches to the fabric on the loom ...


And I did some dying.I was trying to go for a gradient from violet to burgundy with some black dyed for contrast but did not really succeed. Now I'm thinking that the burgundy and the black will make for a nice log cabin weave pattern ... after I finish all the merino pieces I have planed for the loom.

And there you have it. I do still knit and weave ... and duplicate stitch.

Oh, SQL Alchemy? That's my kind of reading. :)
And your weaving and dyeing are looking beautiful. I've got some gradient dyeing in my future this week. Can't wait to see what you whip up.

Can you overdye the yarn you aren't pleased with? And what's the yarn to the left of your room. And I discovered this weekend that I have a rigid heddle loom and now have a book. Now to see if all the parts of the loom are here. The instructions were ummm less than complete. Lots of things to play with at your house, that's for sure.
