Turning Leaves



Skeined.... is that a word?



Onto the needles....




Washed and blocked....




And worn to town....







Woo Hoo!  Love those colours  :-)

  5. Fantabulous Jenni! THat second photo made me jump as suddenly the wool was tiny next to those huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge needles! And illusion for sure! Love seeing that you got a whole shawl from a smallish amount by knitting on big needles, soneone suggested I did that and I'm glad to see how lovely it looks, I shall have to try it! Just stunning! How big are those needles by the way?

  7. Woo-hoo - love YOU!! And if skeined wasn't a word before (I suspect that it was not), it is now. Because that's the charm of English - always growing and morphing. I think we add thousands of words a year. The poor French - so pure. And so stagnant. i LOVE the use of skein as a verb. It opens up so many opportunities to communicate on so many levels at once - and it has GREAT spiritual implications. So - yeah. I'm voting that it's a word. And turning leaves - can't think about that right now - too much summer to live through yet, and I'll get confused. But the colors jerk me in anyway -
