One of the things I wanted to do over my vacation was to weave. So I made up these two scarves on my Cricket loom.
This purple scarf was a scrappy project. I warped the loom with leftover Lion Homespun and eyelash yarn, and I wove the weft with some thrift-store sourced chenille. The texture is very soft and fluffy.
This second scarf was made with one skein of Lion Homespun. I've blogged about weaving with this yarn before. It's very splitty and unravels if you look at it sideways, so it's a bear to knit or crochet with, but it's wonderful for weaving. Just make sure to knot and/or apply fray check to any cut ends.
And because I have a lot of small WIPs, I made two more Japanese Knot Bags from the free on-line BHG pattern. It's been fun using some of my more playful prints.
The three bags fit nicely in a basket and I can grab one and go when I need a bit of knitting meditation.
