Up to this point I've mainly used this blog to talk about items I'm selling or what's going on in my etsy shop, but I think it would be far more interesting if I try to use it to share information about my crafts, whether personal or for sale, as well. I am a member of the Idaho Etsy Team, and it's high time I joined in the fun of their weekly WiP Wednesday feature, where members post about what projects they have in the works. I just started a new knitting project today, it is one of my eighteenth-century Scottish bonnets for a client. The yarn is Knit Picks Wool of the Andes in the color Amber Heather and it's beautiful, it just glows! The bonnet's small now, but I will probably have it done in no more than a couple of days. It's a quick and easy pattern and I'm a speedy knitter. The other project I've got in the works is a group project with listeners of the Knitmore Girls Podcast, they are doing a SPAKAL (spin and knit along), we are all going to make a sweater in 2012! I am doing the whole shebang, I have a bag of fleece just off the sheep and I will be preparing, dyeing, spinning, and knitting. It will be a big project, but I know I'll love the process. Here are a few pictures of the fleece: I wish I could somehow transmit how soft and springy this fleece is! It's very clean, but there is still some lanolin in it, which makes my hands really soft when I spin. Come on over to the Idaho Etsy Team team blog and check out what other folks are knitting!
