Maikell Shawl

leave a comment »

So I started the shawl early August and try to set aside about an hour or so a day and have been doing really well with it I think.  My first attempts weren’t very good with Nupps so on this particular project I am substituting with 6/6 black seed beads and I am loving what is going on with them! I took pictures and will certainly be posting them at the bottom of this entry.

Who am I making it for?  Well, I intended on gifting it to my sister-in-law for either her birthday or Christmas (depending of course on when I finish it), but I may end up keeping it for myself LOL.

I am using Castle Fibers SCAB lace-weight which is 50%silk and 50% Merino Wool:

Castle Fibers

leave a comment »

Ok guys and gals!
I’m going to be adding links (slowly but surely)  in the sidebars to places that I think are interesting and would benefit any fiber fan who happens to stumble on my humble abode!
Today I am adding Castle Fibers.  She is extremely creative with just the right dash of sass (that is quickly becoming my favorite compliment).

Take a look, bookmark, and give your business.  She is a wonderful and talented person whose love for fiber is evident!
