One armed warping, mostly with my non-dominant hand, is hard! I’m slowly plugging away at it as the in-process loom is taking up 3/4 of my studio space and I want it out of my way. I’ve also been taking a lot of time to work on PT exercises (with my giant green ball) 💚
My new hand knit black walnut naturally dyed merino sweater, fresh off the needles. It’s so cozy and everything I wanted it to be. FINALLY!!!
I’ve been keeping my hands busy with beads and hand drilled stones, making a small collection of these multi-strand pieces that will be available in a few weeks. 🤍🖤🤍 Also, while visiting family I seem to have created a small grey kitty-monster named Rufio who is obsessed with string. He sits for hours and stares at me while I work in hopes that I’ll leave the string unattended. (I only made that mistake once)
The process of no pattern knitting. …Almost done!
This is one of those projects that has gone on for far too long. I keep picking it up, then putting it away, and this time I won’t stop until the sweater it complete!!! It’ll be my first (and probably only) hand knit sweater. The torso is covered with free form cable knitting, the yarn is bulky black walnut dyed merino 🤎
Along with my usual raw silk, cashmere/silk and fingering weight merino I ordered some delicious organic chunky weight merino that will become delicious new creations. Now I’ve just got loads of dyeing to do. 🌈🤍
