      Nice hats! This is a helpful reminder for me to get started on Christmas gifts!

    The cables hat is made with a handspun yarn: 25% labradoodle (From my dad’s dog) and 75% BFL.

    The blue hat is also made from handspun, of mystery wool from my neighbor’s pet sheep. I spun it on a vi rage bottom whorl drop spindle (Weighing 4 oz) from the 1970s. I plied it from the center pull cone that I pulled off the spindle shaft, then wound a center pull ball and cake dyed it using Easter egg dye tablets.

      So pretty!!! How does the labradoodle feel? Sounds intriguing.

    This is a Shaw I made using laceweight alpaca/silk blend yarn. I started with a basic Faroese shape, but dramatically increased the number of increases so it would be extra wide. I added a row of eyelets every 2 rows or so. It is around 150 g of white yarn. Then I used handspun, hand dyed yarn to chain stitch in the eyelets to form ruching.

    It was all an experiment. I thought it would be neat to have laceweight arm that’s been dyed with resist marks. So. I ripped out the chain stitching and made a hat out of it.

    Then I mailed the shawl to a YouTube dyer who is going to use it as a shawl blank (like a sock blank, only
    much larger). I’m excited to see if she chooses to add the ruching back into it before she dyes it. I have no idea what color or technique she’ll use, and I’m excited to see how it turns out.

    Once it’s dyed, she’ll unravel it and send it back to me. I know that knitted blanks are usually unraveled by the person doing the knitting, but I thought it would be neat for people to see what it looks like unraveled as well.

      That is very interesting. I had to go look up some of the terminology to understand the process and now I'm looking forward to seeing your next pictures. I didn't know what resist marks were or that there was even such a thing as a shawl blank so thank you for sharing! Do you think you would ever try and dye it yourself?

      It will be amazing. I've never heard of a shawl blank before!

    Shawl blank is something new! I invented it after I decided my shawl needed some color. 😉 But I am Avery amateur dyer and font have any commercial dyes, only done Easter egg dye tablets, which have a limited color palette.

    I do some dyeing at times, but I’m sponsoring an episode on the dyer’s YouTube channel and thought this would be something fun and different. Her channel has been around a long time and she’s done hundred of videos, but never a shawl blank. So I thought it would be interesting for people. 😃

ID:	63721I hope this is okay to post here. I know it's not a physical knitted project, but my knitting and my graphic design and very closely intertwined! This month I completed a new knitting font! It's 10 stitches high, and has decorative upper case, an 8-stitch lower case, and a 5 stitch small caps. I started making knitting fonts because whenever I would use rectangular graph paper to design fair isle letters for Christmas stockings, I wasn't happy with the way the diagonals would look, especially on letters with plenty of curves, like B, P, R, etc. . Not I can see in advance how the letters will look and it's super easy to create new letter charts!

        KnitSwag sure, it’s fine to post your finished font here! I looked closely at the letters, and I can see all the hours you must have put in on this project! They’re great!

      I've nearly exhausted my Sugar'n Cream stash. I made some small cloths for mom. She loves them for wiping up spills and such.

      I knit Martha Cardigan by designer Kim Hargreaves using Tuskenknits Classic Wool and High Feather silk/mohair held double, both in color Callais. Highly recommend this pattern and definitely Tuskenknits yarn!!

        I keep coming back to look again. These are almost too nice to be kitchen towels. With all of the different patterns and colors, they are just beautiful.
