There's all sorts of fun in Annie's weaving world this week!
I'm in a contest on this here website. It's full of stuff with a lovely colored theme of "Desert Sunset".
This sash was chosen for the contest. If you want to go have a look, the voting box is in the lower left. Warning: there is other cool stuff that you might want to vote for there, too.
Today I mailed off the custom shirt trim that I've been working on. All 20 feet of it. My husband said that this just might be one of the coolest things I've ever woven. Big words from a big fan. I agree that it's beautiful.
I got the 4 skeins of handspun yarn in the mail from BlitzKnits and set to work straight away using the "Teal Dreams" silk. Blended with these other three yarns, it makes for a nice sash, but gets a little lost in the mix. I had to put it with other stuff as it was a small skein and I used it all. It was a nice addition to the Etsy shop. Great colors!
This is what the skein looked like.
