Snug slouch hats

I finished some very beautiful and cosy slouch hats and loop scarves, they are made of hand dyed extra soft merino-silk yarns and handspun merino yarn, they are now displayed at StoneCircleWools on etsy:

Everyone have a very peaceful and snug 1st advent weekend! :o)

The 100m yarn project

I am preparing for the october craft fair, spinning and painting yarns and fibers every day (yep, Sundays included), and I am planning to spin the majority of yarns into chunky weights for the fair. The chunky yarns are perfect for quick knit or quick crochet projects, and 1 skein of 100m (111yds) will be sufficient e.g. for an adult size beanie hat, a chunky neckwarmer or buttoned collar scarf.

I crocheted a beanie hat with my chunky yarn “Slate” using an 8mm and 7mm hook, it turned out very lovely indeed. Very soft, elastic, and I had about 4-5 yds of yarn left in the end. I will take it to the fair and wear it, for presentation purpose  :o)

You can find my current colorways of 100m-yarns in my etsy store All The Pretty Fibers :o)

That´s all for now :o)

Everyone Happy Knitting, Crocheting and Crafting!

Beanie production

I think that 2016 will be a crocheting year for me :o) I have been enjoying working my yarns with the little hook for the past months, and now I have found my passion for beanie hats, variegated, stripey, gipsy style or boho, they are great fun to make, especially with yarns that have freshly come off my bobbin or out of my dyepot.

Any head size between 20-23 inch, (that´s 50-58cm) can be finished with 1 skein (180-200 yds) of my worsted weight single yarn. The yarn in purple shades I didn´t use for my hats, I thought that someone else should have fun creating something gorgeous with it. :o)

 

 

The single handspun yarns can be found in my etsy store. I will be making fresh yarns on a regular basis.

Everyone Happy Fiber Crafting!
