A winter project

Here is a little project I have been working on occasionally this fall. I have not quite decided what it’s going to be. right now I am just playing. I also posted this to Ravelry so if you are a member there you may have seen it. I am using the Multi looms because this is sock weight yarn. I bought it at OFFF and have the label somewhere, I’ll look it up. It is hand dyed superwash wool, that I do remember. But after weaving a couple 6” squares, I knew I was going to get bored before the entire large skein was done so got the idea to make 6” squares using the other sizes. I have not run out of options yet. And have not decided if I am going to involve the triangles or not. As you can see I have also not done anything with the tails either. But it is kind of interesting to see how close to the original 6” I can get. The top center block was put together by sc each side and then slip stitched the two sides together. I like how that looks but found that it makes the block just a tince too wide and with more than one seam it makes them way too wide. That could be compensated for by working an edging around the outside of the block but I decided to go with a narrower join, just one row of sc. I chose this dark maroon yarn because I thought it toned the red & green down a bit and also being a bit smaller yarn the seams would be a little less bulky. It’s already been redone once and is still subject to frogging. And I expect it’s going to be a long time finishing. 🙂

Finally we have some white stuff! It’s thin here, which is fine, but it was sure pretty to see it falling again! Randy and Stella took a ride up Scott Mt today and took some pictures where it’s deeper. If the forecast are right there will be more up there starting sometime tonight and it looks like its going to  hang around off and on for the coming week. I have no weaving to show you  but have been working in the shop. Stock is getting low so we have to go back to work. 🙂 But I did get some cookies baked today and I think it’s time to put the teapot on and sit by the fire and admire the snow!
