I started stitching "Walking the Cat" as well this week. I am having a hard time getting excited about it. I think it is too early to be thinking about end of October designs! Once I get going it will move along as I really do like the design.
The new website is finished! CM Designs I am really pleased with how it looks. Far more consistent than the old site, and an easier web address to remember!
And, as expected, more spinning!
This one is 2-ply, using the same fabric throughout, a heavier cotton that was a table cloth in a pretty buttery yellow with pastel, abstract shapes throughout. I ripped it into strips about 1/2" each and plied those with two different colorful yarns, alternating about every seven yards. One of the yarns was recycled from a scarf I pulled apart, the other two tangled bunches I rescued from a local thrift shop. 100 yards total of this one!
This one is really unique. There are eight different fabrics in this one, so there are a lot of knots and loose threads tangling throughout. I plied it with a multi-colored yarn that was a wool blend in a scarf. I just love the texture in this one. 85 yards.
I probably won't get to much the rest of the weekend as the family has plans involving lots of food, campfires and miniature golf games. (weather permitting! raining AGAIN) So I guess my seafood pasta salad creation will have to suffice for Day 93!
