Fiberish things

I finished binding off the Zauberball shawl (didn’t count the stitches, but it was a big number!) and blocked it yesterday. It’s been too windy for a photo shoot, but it sure felt nice around my shoulders!

Starting to bind off.

Also plied the BFL/tussah silk I got from Rachel at the fiber gathering back in February. No idea what it might become, but I love the colors.

Colorway: Jeanette.

I’ve been spinning the Juniper BFL/silk blend lately; there’s a lot of it, and I hope a sweater might eventually happen πŸ™‚ Amber has decided she likes the sheepskin on my spinning chair, so I’ve had some trouble getting to sit in it.

And since you never know when you might run out of fiber, I couldn’t resist this. It’s a bit out of my usual color range, but I can’t wait to play with it.

Merino/bamboo viscose; Blood Orange.
