this and that
This seems to be the year for babies in the lives of many of my good friends: a great excuse to knit up some handspun wool into baby hats. I love spinning, but I rarely use 2-ply handspun in my work and it knits up so soft and nubbly. I've also got a decent selection of patterned flannel sheets from this past winter when I was weaving rag rugs - second hand flannel makes great baby blankets, especially when I find great cloud/moon/star patterns.
Trying to use up all my little tidbits of fine cotton weaving yarn, leading to random warp striping for my zippered pouch cloth. Still sticking with the interlocking Gothic Cross pattern here, which starts to do some interesting things when the warp stripes are irregular.
