Feeling Rather Scattered

I just realized I had not done any blogging for nearly two weeks.  Bad blogger!  But I realized that a big part of it was due to not being entirely devoted to one thing…and as such, I didn’t have a specific subject to blog about.

I finished my very first weaving project.  (Where project = something about the size of a placemat!)  But hey, it’s something!

First Weaving Project

I have warped up my loom again; this time, I have used some Berocco Remix – I am still mostly just practicing and using up worsted weight yarn.  I’ll be using some left over Cascades 220 and some Berocco I used to knit Chase a hat a few years ago for the weft.  I am looking forward to being able to use fingering and even laceweight yarns at some point.  I have a suspicion that some of the two colour stashes that I set aside for shawls may end up woven at some point.

I have been spinning a bit as well…a fractal spin of a blue/purple Friends in Fiber BFL/Silk blend.

The "fractal" half of a fractal spin!

The “fractured” half of a fractal spin!

The fractured half is nearly complete – seven of nine pieces spun.  Then I get to the half that’s still in one piece.  I am looking forward to seeing how this turns out.

I have been knitting a bit…a Hermione’s Everyday sock and a test knit sock for a friend.  And I am awaiting an email from a designer about another test knit I have committed to.  But I have also started designing.  This is a bit of a departure for me.  I have had my nose in stitch dictionaries for the past week or so, and have a surprising number of designs in my head, and even a theme for them, if they ever all get done.  The first one to make it onto needles is a pair of fingering weight socks, and I have a cowl and a DK weight sock waiting in the wings.  The whole experience is pretty fun, I have to admit.  Never thought this was something I’d ever try.

All other crafts have had to fall by the wayside…so much to do and so little time!  Now, I just need a severe case of “finish-itis” so that some of this stuff actually gets done!
