Roundup of Week 20: What We Crafted From May 16-22
- Michelle/halloweentango went to a fiber festival, took some photos, and went kayaking for the first time. See pics on her blog!
- Jessica worked on her Citron and was slightly distracted from her crafting by packing up her apartment and getting ready to move home. She graduated, too — stop on by her blog and send her some congrats!
- Elabeth did a multi-week check-in. She finished her Citron shawl, an Emmaline pullover, a knit hat, and a woven scarf. She also gort a cool creative entrepreneur book and has been visual-journaling.
What I did this week:
Aside from continuing to write every single day...
Sunday, I made a washable fabric storage box for the Great Craft Room Rescue project (and eventually I'll post the directions). Monday, I rearranged some of the craft room, unraveled a sweater for the yarn, finished a draft of a new fingerless gloves pattern (which will probably be free :D), and knitted again on the TwitKAL shawl to keep it from settling into complete abandon. Tuesday, I plied the last of the most recent yarn spun from a Spazzy batt, plotted my June Phat Fiber contribution, dyed some Merino/Tussah roving, and wound center-pull balls out of the recently recycled yarn. Wednesday, I frogged part of a long-sleeping shawl project for the red yarn, started spinning some Merino roving that I'm calling Sapphire and Rubies, dyed more Merino/Tussah, and wove a triloom triangle from the red frogged yarn. Thursday, I wove yet another triloom triangle. Friday, I knitted on some custom fingerless gloves and won a photo print for my craft room from Darrah Parker Photography. Saturday was my off day — and HMPH on that, since I almost managed to craft every single day of the week. Alas! Maybe next week.
