I've been pretty busy since returning home, and I've got lots of pictures for you.
First, do you recognize this snakelike creature?
Here it is demonstrating the super- cool feature of having a pull- through hole within each cable crossing that can be used to secure the scarf around your neck- no bulky knots(unless you want them); and unlike a regular key-hole scarf, it doesn't have a gaping hole in it when your not using the pull through feature!!
That's right, it is the Reversible Cabled Scarf, all done and ready for use.
I've also been spinning a bit. Here are two skeins. The bluish one is from a new roving colorway: Twilight. The other is the first of many to be spun for an Autumn Shawl that I'm designing. It is in the Autumn Fire colorway, but is more of a self-striping yarn than a tweed.
And finally, a shot of the lovely Joy's fleece. I've ordered it, and am anxiously waiting for its arrival. Joy's fleece is soft, with a nice luster, and a fiber length of 5". What more could I ask of a sheep!
I've also ordered a Finn Fleece, so there will be lots more dyeing, carding, and spinning in the weeks to come!
