Giving myself a hand!

"A thing of beauty."  That statement/phrase means different things to everyone.  Right now. At this time.  This week.  This project...

A thing of beauty to me (according to the stipulated points above as I see them) is a finished object that is soft, warm, created by me from start to finish-beginning with the spinning of the yarn all the way through weaving in the last little tail-and FITS!

Sorry for the weird lighting...our office at the shop does not have very forgiving lighting.  Not to mention, I should probably re-think having my darling husband take the pictures for me with my phone!  AAACCCKKK, you should see the out-takes.  Hilarious.

For those that need the 411:  Yarn:  handspun gray suri alpaca
                                               Pattern:  Ephemera
                                               Needles:  um, 4 US, but supposed to be 6 US

  2. Oh there is nothing like a fiber to finished object project, they are just so special. You did a wonderful job, I'm so impressed! They are sure to keep your hands super warm this winter. Isn't it strange how 80% phone photos are terrible but then every once in a while when you are least expecting it you get a stunning photo? At least that is my personal experience. I think that the first photo really captures how you feel about the project, like you are saying "victory!"

    1. Exactly! There is nothing quite like being able to look at something and being able to say "I made that...LITERALLY...made that from start to finish." Phone photos are such a crap shoot. That is, the vast majority look like crap!

  4. Now all you need is some snow and a sled and a hill to go down!
