The Goods On the Yarnie Group

Monday night was a busy Yarnie Group. Everyone brought their latest knits to show off. This is the “Pattern In My Head” sweater. It a sweater one of the girls had in her head, and now, here it is! It’s beautiful.

This is the owl sweater that has been very popular the last few months. The button eyes will be sewn on later.

This cross cable pattern hat is hand dyed yarn from natural dyes that one of the girl does. She has been known to use hibiscus, jewel weed and black beans. The colors are amazing.

This beautiful tab hat was knit with baby llama. It is so light and soft.

This slouchy hat was made for one of the girls daughters by request. The orange and purple were picked out by her daughter.

These mittens are for the another daughter of the group. How little and cute are they? They are being made with a self striping sock yarn.

These cable mittens were made with hand spun yarn from a drop spindle. The wool is so warm and soft, not itchy at all. There were another “pattern in my head” project. We have a lot of those around this group.

The same lady who made the mittens above, spun this lovely fiber below. Aren’t the colors beautiful?

This purple yarn is what she is currently working on.

Here’s a picture of my WIP, a sweater for my Mom. She requested on made with the same yarn as I made Griffin’s red sweater with. I like the yarn and thought she deserves a sweater!

This is actually a crazy part of our group. One of the ladies has a Newfoundland Dog. They are a very large and hairy dog. We always talk about how our animals shed, and it would save us a ton on yarn if we could spin their fur. This was only joking, of course. Well on one of the Ravelry threads from podcast group (theKnitWits), someone asked if anyone had ever spun poodle. One thing led to another and the lady from our group sent her some Newfie hair. The woman prepped it and spun it. This was the result…

Crazy eh? She actually talks about it on her podcast. If you are interested in the podcast you will find it here.

And lastly a beautiful scarf made from wool purchased at a local fiber festival. It’s another original pattern. Gotta love how this group does not color between the lines!

    I have picked up lab/chihuahua hair tumbleweeds and tried to spin them, but they’re too short and scratchy. Hehe. I’m enjoying your blog. I just found it today. I love the owl hat and it’s sad he lost his dino hat. Maybe someone who really needed it, found it.
