That's the theme for this year's show and tell at our guild. I was going to rehash some old yarn into something new, but after trying I've decided it's not going to work (mohair I used back in the 1980's). Instead I've revisited my projects for this year and decided I already have something perfect!
It has proven to me that I love weaving and as a result I'm now working on my third project which is a little more complex than anything I've done before.
Here's my sample for the point twill I'm working on
On the knitting front I've almost reached the armholes for my jersey. My test knit is on hold till my large Fleegle Beader arrives; hope it's soon! My Pi shawl hasn't moved much either, the yarn is so fine it's not the easiest knit. My argyle look socks have the first ribbing band done, will start the colourwork soon.
Sewing has kind of stalled; school holidays are part of that, and the fact that I handsew for a living means I tend to put off stuff I have to handsew for "fun".
I've been spring cleaning though, that's kind of put the rest on go-slow and now that the inside of the house is mostly done the garden is starting to scream for attention.
