post christmas selfish knitting

So I've been working on a few non gift items just-because-I-feel-like-making-them projects.


it's just a basic entrelac pattern using Tilli Thomas Pure and Simple silk. So decadent to work with.


this is candy stripes form IK holiday issue. I'm using some long stashed rowan kid classic (it's for me).

and a little spinning and navajo plying:

and most exciting.... I got a loom for my birthday. It came yesterday and I have no idea what I'm doing but plan to spend some time with it this weekend :)

wow - all of those things look so beautiful, I don't know which to comment on first!

Lovely spinning, such gorgeous colours, and the entrelac just downright impresses me ;) I was a bit taken by the imp nature of that shawl when I saw it in Knitscene, glad to see someone making it.

The entrelac is lovely in those colors (seems like a great way to use such a highly variegated yarn), the candy stripes kerchief looks like such fun, and your spinning is beautiful as always!
