they are not for me, so they are about a size larger.
they have a weird shape, but i’m pretty happy with how they turned out.
next, is a pair for myself!
i’m not dead yet.
though we did get smacked by a truck today (not our fault, or really his)- we got around 4″ of fresh stuff this morning (snow on top of ice – not good for driving) and it’s still blowing around… and i don’t think i will be driving for the rest of the evening. especially since the tire makes a horrible scraping noise with the bottom of the car every time you hit a slight bump… oh the joys of anchorage and it’s never ending winter.
i have been a little under the weather with a cold. though i feel much better now and have more energy.
i have not unpacked from last weekends cabin trip.
i have not completely finished the posts for the hawaii trip.
i have been working on this (started it on last weekends girls cabin trip. dang cute!):
i have finished this skein of yarn (one ply is from the fiber in the previous post, the other is wool i got when i first started spinning). i over twisted it so it would look more stripy and not as loose as my previous 2-ply yarns (sorry, my camera takes horrible photos, especially in low light):
i have felted these flats (just have to sew on strap and find a pretty button – any suggestions on color or type?):
i have not done much spinning, and this bobbin is waiting to be plied with a mate (it will be identical to the second photo):
i have finished a few hats, but they will have to be posted later.
oh, we have a new home, her name is “willow”:
oh, to be on the ocean again…
so i was talking to my mom today on the phone while i put in the hat from yesterdays post to felt. and i overfelted it. not by much, but it’s definitely not what i wanted it to do. and it’s ribbed on the bottom, which gives it the fisherman effect. not happy. it still looks cool, but i liked how it looked yesterday. wah.
so i started another one, but it’s going to have more gold because i’m running out of my green. and its smaller.
i also felted these last night:
see this post to see how huge they were before.
and the koolaid scarf:
i’m holding the yarn double so it will be thicker.
and a picture of nootka a.k.a. tootka (she has the worst gas) a.k.a. nooty pants and her friend. i took this of her over new years weekend (the only picture i managed to take since we discovered the sd card was left in the computer) and think it’s hilarious.
