Two finishes

I realize I never shared the completed Deere Season spin here.

I am not a fan of yellowy greens, and yet… I think this is awfully pretty. It was intended to be socks, but now I am not so sure. It’s about 300 yards, in just over 3 ounces.

Then there is this, finished at last. I held off on the kitchener joining until I had some clear and quiet time. It paid off as my best kitchener yet. In fact, after I wove in the ends and blocked it, I couldn’t find the join! I may never love kitchener but I no longer fear dread it.

That’s it from here for finishes last week!

  1. Oh, I LOVE that green! It says “first buds of spring” to me–and that’s a very appealing concept (spring) right now. The cowl is beautiful–you get better at this stuff all the time!

    1. Thank you! You might not say that if you saw the mess that happened with my loom warping this weekend. I closed the door. The brownies will have to fix it.

    1. Thank you! Patience I knew. Practice not so much. The last two projects had long kitchener joins, 55 stitches in one, 42 in the other. I think I got it! Much better than doing sock toes !

  2. That green! As you know, it’s right up my alley anyhow! It’s really lovely and silky shiny looking. And your cowl is great too!

  3. The cowl is terrific. I love the colors and texture. The yarn is gorgeous and greens are not normally my colors. But you blended the colors in so perfectly. It has so much shine. Is it mixed with silk?

  4. I LOVE the Deer Season spin – so very nice and even, and I adore the yellow-green colors. They’re just so happy! You did a beautiful job on the cowl and giant kudos on the Kitchener – WOO HOO!

  5. Love the cowl! I’m with you on the kitchener stitch. I have to be alone with no distractions. Once I get the rhythm, its not too bad.
    I like the green! I just finished a fingering weight “sockhead” hat that I started a few years ago in a very similar green. I thought it would never end!

    1. Exactly how I have to do kitchener. Well rested, fed and left alone. It does take on a rhythm, given enough stitches! 😉 I know I won’t wear that green near my face, which is why I originally thought socks. But it is too nice. 😉

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
