Hmm...... so the reveal was Sunday

And I am just now getting this up! As Gilly would say.....sorry. Perhaps I need to refresh. I belong to a fiber guild and we had our Holiday Project exchange this past Sunday. I have been keeping this under wraps for quite some time now and I finally can show what I made with the handspun yarn I have been working on for the past few (5 or 6) months.

This was all spun on my spindle I will have you know. So what I made was La La's Simple Shawl (free ravelry download)!

I am really pleased with how it came out and so was Liz. I don't think she took it off the whole afternoon. Which makes me very happy. Here she is modeling it for me:

Here is a nice close up

And why not! Here is still yet another shot on Liz:

Well not only do I make something, I also received something and I must say I have worn this scarf every day since I have received it. It is a hand woven scarf! Noticed we all have the same colors (it was planned that way)

This has to be one of my favorite meetings of the year. You see what everyone has made. I loved each and everything that was made this year. Everyone in the group did a fantastic job. Here is a group shot:

I am not sure why this photo is sideways, but I can't figure out how to make it a landscape right now.

As you can see there were 2 shawls, a shawlette, 3 scarves, a tea cozie, a mobius scarf, a crochet neckwarmer and some fingerless mitts.

How talented are we?


  1. You are the Queen of Spindling! I would have given up long ago if I had to spin up mine that way. That is my favorite meeting of the year! Don't forget to send me the pics email for the newsletter, please!

  2. The shawl is soooo beautiful! I LOVE the colors for this year. (What's really funny is that I'm actually wearing those exact colors right now... purple shirt with a grey and green hoodie-sweater-thing on over the top.)

  3. What a beautiful arrangement of fiber! Your woven shawl is fantastic. How nice to have a group to play with!

  4. I'm so happy to hear you liked the scarf! I fretted over it more than once. I'm still waiting to see what I got. I can't wait. Is it cheating that I looked?

  5. Joan, Your scarf is amazing! It is inspiring me to learn to weave. I have a table loom that I really need to dust off. I don't think it's cheating, I am guessing you haven't gotten your gift yet right? I am not sure which one belongs to you! Fantastic job. Thanks for the scarf. I love it.
