This is a knit dress for my niece in Oz. She turns one at the end of this month. I had a lot of fun knitting this and it only took me three days. The blue yarn was 100% bamboo and the yellow was Taki Classic Cotton which I may have fallen deeply in love with.
I got to use some of my vintage buttons from my stash. This top was loosely based on the Rolly Top, I changed how the skirt of the dress was done and I striped to yarns in the yoke.
I also completed these boy shorts using the elann Esprit I had floating around in my stash. They fit, but they are a bit scandalous. This pattern was the Assets of Evo, I followed the pattern to the legs which I made longer and added contrasting ribbing.
Here's the project I'm stalling on. It's not even intentional, just a miss calculation in yardage and now I have to wait till my order comes in with the last two balls that I need.
I have been spinning a lot more and here is one of my lovelies. The photo doesn't do the color any justice, but I love this stuff. This puppy was a 4oz braid of Frabjous Fiber BFL and Silk in their Iris colorway.
Again this photo doesn't do it justice there is way more purple and teal. I was able to spin 440 yards of a double ply from this 4oz braid. BFL may be my favorite fiber, especially when combined with silk. The color reminds me of peacock feathers.
This cake of singles is something I spun last spring. Again its Frabjous Fibers BFL in Plum Toast. I plan to leave this as a single I just need to take the time to measure it and wash it. It's as close as I think I will ever get to lace weight.
