socks off!

ok--I hate them. the yarn is too thick and i can feel the stitches. the toes are not finished quite perfectly (i need to practice kitchner stick) I don't like the pattern, either. But it was a good learning experience. also...one turned out slightly bigger than the other. (OOPS!) Posted by Picasa

and now the only question is...

do i keep it or sell it? I love, love, LOVE the colors. It is a beautiful Mohair Yarn. It is 4 plus ounces (122 grams) and i love it...but maybe i should sell it. This is the bottom layer of my jar dyeing experiment with mohair. after i pulled it out and started playing with it i loved the aztec gold/chestnut brown layer so much as a separate batt that i just HAD to spin it up myself! What do you think? keep it? sell it? weave a scarf? what? HELP!!!! Posted by Picasa

one final pic...

i love this yarn and the weaving is far from perfect so i'm not sure whether i should keep it, give it to my daughter or something or sell it telling what flaws it has. Posted by Picasa

oops wrong picture

this is the leading end of the scarf...where i got way too tight. the other pic is where i fixed it... Posted by Picasa

beginning end of scarf

i wove too tightly at the leading end of my scarf...so i don't LOVE this...after several inches i realized what i was doing and fixed it tho. Posted by Picasa

my very first rigid heddle weaving project

this yarn is variegated creating this "semi-plaid" look. I love how it turned out. (mostly) Posted by Picasa
