Fall Finished Goods & Last Chance for the Giveaway!

If you have not entered the drawing for the giveaway of two knit wraps, be sure to enter today before 9 p.m. PST (midnight on the East Coast.) I'll draw names and post a winner tomorrow.

You were promised some photos of the finished items from the last post, and here they are:

These bangles are the first batch of Autumn ones to come off my crochet hook. Fall colors are my favorites because they are intense and sensual. Can't wait to make more!

One can not rave enough about baby llama roving! It is way softer than a baby's butt. Most spinners would probably spin this up thinner, but I really wanted a super bulky yarn from it. The finished yarn is about 6 wraps per inch with only 85 yards from 7 ounces of  fiber. Although you cannot tell from the photo, it's thick and ropey--but unbelievably soft. It is destined to be paired with a lace weight yarn (yep, you heard right) in a luxurious winter scarf.

And finally, the Sangria Chevron Scarf:

If Missoni worked with bulky yarn, would they create something like this? I am not sure, but this scarf was inspired by them. It has eleven different yarns, six of which are my own bulky hand-spun color-twist yarns and five are solid-colored bulky commercial yarns. It's wildly bohemian, but super warm and cozy. 

Valerie just got back from her summer in Europe and had to try this scarf on immediately. There will be some photos of her next week. Boy did she have some adventures!
