Off my Loom: Doubleweave

After what seemed like ages, these beauties were unleashed from the front beam.  After hemming, I threw them in the wash and they came out wrinkly and weathered.  A little steam and they are thick and lush.  I love the inverse coloration on the opposite side.  And of course the angular, modular feel of the towels in general. It made choosing a side, very difficult.

Off my Needles: A turban

And in a short week, a turban is born.  Soft from the mohair/silk and lofty from the wool.  A perfect winter combo that I quite enjoy.

And the best part?  Totally bun friendly!  Mission accomplished

Cooling down

Has anyone else been desperately waiting for summer to end solely to justify multiple trips to the yarn store to snatch up all that is warm and wooly in fear that not every appendage and acquaintance appendage will have a lovely hand knit encasement?  Or is that just me?  I'm excited to start this mohair wool concoction; a sad remnant of a project that ended abruptly with summer.
