Alive and done, the Love of Spiders is completed. I am completely happy with how it turned out. I finished the knitting at my knitting group yesterday and I am super happy with it. I had some of my friends feel it and melt, I mean it is 100% mulberry silk after all. Even my mother felt it and kind of swooned a little bit and ask if it was for her. It’s for me, but I might let her borrow it ever so often. I haven’t woven in the ends or blocked it just yet, but thats for later today. But with it all done it freed up the needles that I needed in order to do the mystery knit along. But for now here is a pre-blocked look at the finished item.
Looking pretty good if I do say so myself.
You remember I said that I was going on a yarn embargo? That wasn’t that long ago, when I saw the state of the stash and decided that I needed to slim it down? Well I caved once again, but for a good reason. Well more of a justification in my head. This colorway was out of stock and I liked it quite a bit. So when I saw another ball on the shelf I wasn’t going to take chances and so I picked it up. With that purchase I earned a reward with the shop which I think I will buy one more skein of that yarn and resume the embargo.
It’s Apple Tree and it’s beautiful. Also helps that I have a good lighting set up now.
And I have some ideas for weaving from stash that I want to do, but I need to get a few different dent heddles for my loom first. More to come on that.
