Recently Finished Project

written in September 2015:

Well, hello there!  Long time, no see ;)  I took an unintentional break from this blog, and now I'm ready to get into the swing of things again.  I wanted to share some recently finished projects with you.

And now, in present time....:)

I meant to come back full force with my knitting projects, abandoned this draft, and then forgot about it! Since I'd already finished it, I will want to share this FO.  I've knit a few things since this shawl, so keep a look out for those in the next few weeks!



Pattern: Romeo Shawl by Joji Locatelli
Yarn: Colinette Jitterbug in Tapis, 400 yards
Needles: US 4

Project page here.

I knit this up for the Joji Fall KAL group on Ravelry.  I joined the KAL on a whim, and I am so glad I did!  It was the perfect way to get back into the swing of knitting.  That combined with the impending fall weather has me knitting up a storm right now.  This shawl is going to be so pretty when the weather cools down.  I will definitely be making another Romeo Shawl in the future.  It would be gorgeous in a lighter weight.  I blocked it lightly, but now I'm wondering if I should block it again more aggressively.  The picot edging is still curling a bit, and I'd really like it to stand out more.  Despite that, I love it!

Christmas Knitting

Have you started your Christmas knitting?  I started this past month with a pair of socks for my husband.  I have a couple more projects on my list that will be Christmas presents.

If you're in the market for some spinning fiber or yarn for Christmas projects, check out my shop!  I have quite a few skeins and braids that would be lovely for your projects.

 Thank you for stopping by!

Another Small Fiber Update!

I've updated the shop this morning with a couple fiber braids.  This is a new colorway to the fibertopia shop

I'd like to introduce to you, Seaside!  This is a gorgeous, muted colorway with shades of grey, yellow, and pink throughout.  This particular braid is 100% Corriedale, which is so, so soft.  This colorway was inspired by the soft, relaxing colors of the seaside.

Make sure to check out the other items I've posted in the shop!

Small update today

The small update for today has been complete.  Please visit the shop and view the new fiber colorway I've created.  This is the same colorway as this fingering skein.  I love muted colors on fiber.  Aren't they pretty?  This colorway, which was originally that skein of yarn, was inspired by the clouds that roll in during a summer storm.

Thank you for taking a peek at my shop!

I will have another small update on next Friday, June 28, at 12 noon.

Update! Finally!

Hi!  Long time, no see :)  I'm finally back to dyeing yarn and fiber.  I was in graduate school for the past two semesters, which severely limited my time to dye yarn and fiber.  I have missed it so much!

On my shop page, I had announced an update for tonight at 9 pm.  Since I had time earlier today to post the new yarns, the update has been complete.

I had originally planned for this update to be both my new 1-ply fingering weight and four braids of fiber.  The fiber is still drying, so it will be included in next week's update, on June 21.  The time is to be determined.

I hope you'll take a look at the new yarn line I put in the shop today.  Singles (or 1-ply) are so pretty to me!  This particular yarn is 100% superwash merino, which makes it even softer!

Thank you for your support.  I am excited to get back to dyeing yarn and fiber for the shop on a more regular basis!
