Working On It Wednesday


Just beginning to see the colour shift

Just beginning to see the colour shift

I love this project so much… It would be fair to say that I may have the worst case of Startitis ever but if this is the symptom, I’m okay with that!

The lace varies from cobweb weight to 4-ply over the length and the resulting fabric is light and airy, a great match for the colourway I think. This reminded me of Nova Scotia’s provincial flower, epigaea repens (trailing arbutus), one of my favourites, so you’ll find it in my projects as Mayflower Shawlette. As there is a lot of yardage, I may just do the math and keep adding repeats to use it all up.

Ahh, Wednesday. Beginning the attitude shift and to address the “To do” list for the weekend. There will be my famous chili and cornmeal jalapeno muffins to be made and a blackberry raspberry cheesecake too. I think it’s an essential to have at least one photograph of food in one’s Instagram collection, yes? Now that I’ve gone over to the darkside and all 🙂

    • I do too! I have a little stash of them that makes me happy every time I look at them. I’m loving this in particular because it’s hand spun. The look is so unique compared to a commercial spun yarn and the BFL makes it hard to put down.

      • I’m working on a hand dyed gradient roving right now, and it is sooooooo beautiful. it’s spinning up with a bit more texture than I’d like (I’m a crap spinner, lmao) but handspun is amazingly soft! I think it’s going to be a shawl as well 🙂

      • I’ll have to take a peek, when work allows me to shuck my shackles. I have resisted learning to spin, I am far too obsessive to take on yet another fibre art (that hasn’t stopped me from buying the odd braid or two, just for the colour or fibre, lol). I really love to work with it though, it just feels like there is more love and magick in a garment that has had so many artisan hands in its making 🙂
