I seem to have a short attention span right now, and am going back and forth between some fun projects – it’s Play time!
I knit up the homework for Teddy Bear Sweater Finishing class (watch for this one, it is a super fun way to learn lots of finishing technique!).
Yesterday I attended an all-day seminar on changing to ICD-10 code, which was a great opportunity to knit L’Enveloppe. I made tons of progress, and really love the yarn, which is hand-dyed Anacostia worsted from The Knitting Boutique. It is a big puzzle piece right now, but I trust Sally Melville. Knitting a pattern of hers is like vacation, for me.
You can see where I changed skeins, as the colors shift. This happens with hand-dyed yarns, and I embrace the effect on this project, as I think it adds to the feeling of a varied skyline. The greener skein feels more like ground, and the bluer more like sky. I am loving this!
Yarn: Knitting Boutique Anacostia Worsted, Baltimore Skyline colorway. Pattern: L’enveloppe, Sally Melville. Have divided for neck, and am working to match the first side.
Anacostia Worsted, Baltimore Skyline colorway: beautifully inspired by the postcard, and masterfully dyed to “reflect” the skyline perfectly.
Weaving is not a portable hobby, and I am pretty tired in the evenings, but I have still found some time to play on the looms.
On the rigid heddle loom, I have stash leftovers on the warp, and am using a sparkly worsted weight for the warp. This is a narrow band which I have plans to ruffle and sew around a shawl. It’s playtime, so we will see what happens!!
Playing with treadle patterns with a standard 1,2,3,4 threading. Warp is Cotlin (brown), linen (yellow), and an unknown fiber (blue). Weft is all Cotlin. I started with white until I was bored, and am now working with Blue.
