My final projects were:
A sweater that does in fact fit me, after all. I LOVE it. Used one skein of Decadent Fibers' "Cotton Candy" (no cotton in it, but there you have it. It's mohair, wool, and a nylon binder. Soooft.) stranded with one skein of Opal 6 ply sock yarn! Size 15 needles, top down, my pattern.
Three felted bags made out of Cascade 220. In my mind the best felting yarn ever.
A felted...what? Bucket? Basket? Bag? From a discontinued yarn I had from back in the day, Jaeger Luxury Tweed. The alpaca content made it fuzz up.
And here, then, the whole pile.
1 rectangular shawl
1 triangle shawl
13 felted bowls
5 felted bags
7 afghan squares
1 baby sweater (still needs button band)
6 hexagons towards the Ode to Norah Hexagon Coat
and, not pictured, the beginnings of a sweater for a friend.
The lady that will be missing from family portraits from now on is my paternal grandmother, who passed away on Monday, September 29th, at the age of 90. Her death was "expected", and we were all prepared as well as one can be, but still. It sideswiped me anyway. She was the last "grand", and of course I had lots of childhood memories flooding back.
