A Productive Fiber Weekend!

When I look back at all that I’ve accomplished since the last blog entry on Friday, it’s amazing what a productive fiber weekend I’ve had.

What Is Considered A Productive Fiber Weekend?

A bit of a boring game of yarn-chicken.

It wasn’t that close, but I worried about running out of yarn for the entire last stripe of the scarf.

There was also the weaving in of 24 ends on my latest scarf.

Honestly, I don’t mind weaving in ends. I’ve even recorded a video on my philosophy and techniques for weaving in ends. But this is one of the worst garments for weaving in ends. For each of the 12 color stripes, there are two ends. And both of them are on the same side of the scarf. They also need to be woven into a very limited section of fabric. Securing and hiding them is a bit more challenging than most garments.

Then there was the photoshoot for the completed scarf.

I’m also working on updating the pattern for my Standard Toe-Up Sock Pattern. I’m getting quite good at illustrating concepts on the iPad with Procreate and I’m getting better at taking photos to help show a technique.

All-in-all, I was quite pleased with what I accomplished in a few days.

As you guessed already, I finished the latest Interlocking Crochet Scarf, and it’s a beauty.

I love the brightness of this one. And this design reminds me again how good it is at using up leftover fingering weight yarns.
