When the temperature starts to rise, one starts to think of ways to cool off.
As one who is fiber obsessed, I start to see clear, fresh water in my yarn.
Happy Fiberlicious Friday! The roving that I spun the yarn from was Pippikneesocks, merino/tencel in color Choco Bird, purchased from Scouts Swag.
I've been continuing to knit my Icarus, but it doesn't make for very exciting blog posts. To keep myself, and hopefully my readers interested, I whipped up another handspun pouch.
This one is knit from my earliest spinning. Spinneret introduced me to a kind and generous bunch of knitters and spinners who helped me with my drop spindle. They also gave me bits of fiber to try. I spun them all together and found the results quite charming.
A few posts back when I showed the first of these bags that I made, along with a description of how to make one yourself, a number of people asked if the lining goes all the way to the bottom. Yes, it does. I find that fully lining knit bags helps with stability. You don't want your hard work stretching out of shape when you fill it with your latest sock project.

- If you haven't read Aija's post from today, go over and read it. She has some great etsy links, and pretty much sums up how I feel about etsy.
- I got an e-mail earlier in the week that one of my photos had been chosen from Flickr for Darius's COLORlovers blog. This looks like an inspiring resource. Go check it out.
- Isn't it fun the Megan and Ashley picked the same yarn for their Fiberlicious Friday posts? Each has their own beautiful interpretation of the yarn.
