I can hardly believe I have been quite this productive since I last posted, I really need to make time to post more often! This first scarf is a bit of a cheat, well it was made before the scarf in the last post, but I didn't get any photos of it. The yarn is a cashmere mix and the skein was just a tangled mess when it was given to me, I spent months untangling it, I used to carry it in my knitting bag!

This is the first woven cowl I have made, the warp was a real mix of colours and I did the same with the yarn as I wove, I didn't bother using a shuttle as I changed colour every 2-3 rows.

This second cowl is a mix of green and purple with a little black sparkle and some sari silk!

These are my handspun thrummed mittens. I was knitting them last December, but they were thrown by the wayside in January just needing some thumbs, so I finished them last Friday, just in time for the fashion show at Guild!

What fun pieces you make! The random colors and fibers look so good together.

I'm impressed at how much you've accomplished with a wee one by your side and an active young boy.

Somewhere I have a pair of mitts that I cast aside last winter, I think they only need a thumb. I feel all guilty now.

Lovely weaving although I don't think I have the patience for either pick up sticks or untangling yarn.
