New Work, UFOs
The scarf on the right is my 2-ply handspun (not sure where the hand-dyed fiber came from...) which I edged with purple Louet Gems.
I am doing a lot of weaving lately - more triangles and small squares for scarves and wraps I'm envisioning. Best of all, I'm finally working on my Ashford rigid heddle Knitters Loom!! That deserves a post of its own. So that's all I'm saying about it right now.
On the Needle Harvest front - I think I located almost all my unfinished objects.
Thirty-seven. Yup. And I'm actually relieved. Kiki had forty-eight!
I was surprised by a a few things:
- how resonant these projects are with the times and circumstances of when they were begun and worked on. My oldest UFOs go back to the very difficult times in 2004, and just looking at them took me to places that make tears spring to my eyes.
- how far along these projects were when they were abandoned. There is a shawl (this is one that fairly thunders with the 2004 energy) which just needs some ends woven in and blocking. There is an Einstein coat that just needs sleeves.
- how there aren't that many needles to harvest. There are, however, lots of Denise cords & stoppers.
- how I don't have any patterns or notes with the projects, and have to guess at what size needles I was using.
- how few sock UFO's I have.
- how relatively organized my UFOs are.
And never mind about any drastic changes to the look of my blog - I tried the newer template thingy and didn't much like it. I did, however, change to their newer post-creating option. I do like that, especially working with images.
Finally, a Blessed Samhain to all who celebrate this festival on the Wheel of the Year, honoring Beloved Dead, letting go of the old year and welcoming the new.
