I'm fickle. Really not a surprise, but anyway... Last weekend at the cottage, I planned on making a bunch of blanket squares, and ended up exclusively knitting on my green jeweled cowl. Not a problem of course, but just goes to show how difficult it can be for me to stick to a plan. This past weekend, I also had plans to FINISH my jeweled cowl, since I had made such great progress on it, and wouldn't it be great to get it off the needles?
Can we imagine how well that worked?
It is green and it is beaded, but it's not the jeweled cowl...
A little background... we are in town this week, but starting next weekend, we are at the cottage for the whole week. Even though we will be taking both cars (husband has to leave early for a work commitment), thereby giving us more space to cart stuff up, I still thought to bring my Cricket loom up this weekend, so I could finish the green beaded silk scarf that's been sitting for a while. I was going to put the loom away until next week, but it kept staring at me... and, well, I succumbed.
The first project on my new Cricket and I choose an unyielding fibre like 100% silk. Then I add in the fact that there are beads interspersed along the silk.
My edges are a touch wonky right now, and this piece needs a good soak, and I still have to finish the fringe first. (Must find my fringe twister...)
But I love it, and am pretty happy with it. The best thing is that my loom is now open for so many possibilities. I left it at the cottage and will be bringing an assortment of weavable fibres up for our holidays.
Which, knowing me, I will proceed to ignore...
