I was able to start knitting with the BFL handspun yarn and I can't tell you how sweet it is to knit with yarn that I've created! Don't you just love those soft color gradations?
Since it is work in progress (WIP) Wednesday, I thought I'd share with you a small quilt that I've started. The other day I was browsing in a quilt shop since I had a gift card to use and I came across a jelly roll of Richmond Reds by Barbara Brackman for Moda. I'm more of a batik/solids gal, so choosing reproduction prints was unusual for me, but boy, were they calling my name. I decided to make a tumbler runner for my living room coffee table, and I started cutting out small 2.5 inch (6.4 cm) tumblers.
I noticed some tiny goslings the other day when I was out cycling, just cruising the grass alongside the Boise River with their parents.
And further along, I had a buddy who watches me pedal by each morning come closer to the fence to say hello.
Another WIP is my cotton warp for kitchen towels, where I've started another towel, this time in a balanced or 2/2 twill. I'm throwing two shuttles, one with a sunny yellow cotton yarn and the other with a natural linen yarn. I like the combination and it's going to be a cheery addition to my kitchen!
Here's hoping that you have time for fiber/fabric today,
