This is probably my favorite project so far. The colored yarns are a silk/bamboo blend and they are amazingly soft and silky. You can't really tell from the photo, but the darkest stripe is a beautiful mulberry color. Love it!
And this pair is a hand towel and wash cloth made from 100% cotton. (My first project that wasn't a scarf!) They turned out pretty well even though I was winging it. Lol!
And lastly, here are some photos of what I have been working on tonight! I'm not really making anything, I am just working on a sampler of a bunch of different stiches. So far I've played around with Danish Medallions and Leno Lace. I'm using really bright, contrasting yarns so that it looks cool and so that I can figure out what I did wrong when I mess up!
Anyway, photos of the eyelash scarf are coming soon. I'm just trying to figure out what to do with the fringe; they're kind of plain and ugly right now. So I will post pics when it's all finished and pretty. Well, with these photos, I am almost all caught up on documenting all of the projects I have made so far! Oh, and I got some new storage for my yarn today... I should have taken a before picture of my yarn drawer; it was absolutely bursting! So I bought two plastic drawer things today, and all of my yarn still doesn't fit in them! I guess I will have to buy more, the only problem is that I still have to make room for them in my tiny apartment. Oh well, I guess!
And, something silly to end on... hm... well, I guess it is silly enough to say that I am once again reading The Chronicles of Narnia! And, I am currently on The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (which is BY FAR my favorite), so I am going to put away all my weaving gear and go read! Yay! (Once again, I'm such a partier! Good thing my husband knew I was a nerd before he married me!) So, I'm off to Narnia! Good night blog!
(Just kidding... Another something silly: So I titled this post "Catching Up" and now all I can think about is the line from "Pirates of the Caribbean: the Curse of the Black Pearl" when Jack Sparrow is steering the ship through a frightful storm to the Isla de Muerta. Mr. Gibbs asks him why he's in such a good mood, and Sparrow replies with a wicked smile, "We're catching up." So, that is just running over and over in my head right now. RANDOM!!!)
