It's Done!

I am so excited.  Aeolian the 2nd is finally done.  I save finally because I have been so sick that I couldn't finish the last few rows for days.  But now that I am on the mend it is done and blocked.

The colors came out how I had hoped and the red even changed where I wanted it to.

I even liked it enough to take a modeled shot.  And not one of those arms out, backside ones.

I also finished spinning the yarn for Pampas.

I am a little shy on yardage per the pattern so I will just have to make sure I end soon enough to do the other border and bind off.

Here's a close up.

I also decided on beads that are on the way but not here yet so knitting is at a standstill for now.

Since I have no knitting to work on I am spinning.  I am currently working on the AllSpunUp spin along fiber that I got.

The color is great and it is superwash merino so I am going for a 3ply sock yarn.  We will see how close I come.  I almost always do 2ply so this will be fun to see if I can get the singles thin enough for my finished yarn.

I also bought some great new patterns like Nefertiti so I need to dye and spin some more lace weight.

Amazing, Amazing, Amazing!!!! I'm in awe!

Thank you so much for your email about the Aeolian - I'm trying to finish up the things I "have" to knit so I can start on my shawl.

Your are such an inspiration on lace. This one is just gorgeous - especially how the red fits in just right.

Bravo!

OMG! That's amazing! I love this pattern and have it on my radar for a lace project but I never imagined that it would look so beautiful in self-striping yarn. You've yet again made an incredible piece.
