Finished Yarn: Ravenswood


Finished Yarn: Ravenswood, originally uploaded by Buxtrosion.

3-ply sock yarn from Lorna's Laces combed top. The rest of the 10 oz is going in the stash for a while. I'm ready to move on. There's 750 yards here. It may be time for another pair of handspun knee socks.

FO: Crochet Cheeseburger


Crochet Cheeseburger, originally uploaded by Buxtrosion.

Cheeseburger with the Works by Beth Doherty from Amigurumi Super Happy Crochet Cute. Bobaknitters may remember this book as the one with "Strawbeary Slutcake." I finally got some ok colors for the bun and onions. I thought I was completely out of polyfill, but today I realized I had enough to stuff the buns. I learned a lot of different stitches on this project. It was really fun, but crochet makes me hurt if I try to do it for hours at a time.

FO: Handspun Triangular Shawl


FO: Handspun Triangular Shawl, originally uploaded by Buxtrosion.

Handspun from 2 oz “February in Tacoma” batt (53% Alpaca, 25% Merino/Bamboo, 11% BFL, 3% Tussah silk, 3% yak down, 3% silk noil, and 2% angora). Bought at Stitches West 08 from Tactile. I am totally in love with this and can’t believe I knit it in a week. This is my first triangular shawl, and the pattern is from Knitting Lace Triangles by Evelyn Clark. The construction suits handspun very well. I also liked not having to do a knitted-on border. I am definitely inspired to design triangular shawls for the rest of my handspun laceweight stash!
