It seems it takes cold weather for me to get interested in fiber arts again. It's a yearly cycle. Somehow, having a slowly-growing cuddly blanket growing under my fingers isn't that exciting when it's 100 degrees outside. But in the middle of the winter? Lovely! Goes well with the cup of steaming tea on the side-table.
I've got two blankets going now, but they're both scrapghans and slow-going.
But, here are a few projects I've finished recently. First, a set of dishcloths in my favorite pattern, as a Christmas gift for some friends:
Then, a snood, for me:
I'm particularly happy with the snood. I made it from a 1940's pattern, and stitched it over a headband hotglued to elastic (the elastic goes under my hair, the headband on top) on the final round.
It holds all of my hair and . . . it's the easiest hair-do ever. No pins, no muss, no fuss. Just put it on, and my hair's done for the day. Lovely!
And it sparkles. :)
Anyone else on a winter fiber kick? (Besides momco3. :) )
Peace of Christ to you,
