Dyeing For Norwegian Sweater KAL << Main >> Some Knitting
Hi, All, Happy 2008. Hope everybody made it. :)
I've been busy. Yesterday, I ordered my Reconditioned AVL loom. Here are the specs:
1994 60" Full-Frame Production Dobby Loom 16 Harnesses, Polyester Heddles, Compu-Dobby I,Mechanical Dobby, Dobby Bars, Peg & Peg Wrench, 4-Box Flyshuttle, Overhead Swing Beater, 1-Yard Sectional Warp Beam. It should ship out on Feb. 18.
All I can say is WHOOHOO!!!!
I've got the yarn all dyed. Here's all the skeins. It turned out better than I hadp hoped.
These four pics are one ball that I shot from four different sides.
The colors just leap right out. I think it will look pretty good when it's knit up. Now I am just waiting for the KAL to start. We will be making a headband "swatch". I still have to pick up which motifs I will use. I have the "Starmore" Fair Isle book and "The Complete Book of Traditional Fair Isle Knitting" to look through. Too many choices.
I've been working on the grandkid's hoodie in my off moments. It's coming along slowly but surely. Pardon the awful colors...I took this last night around midnight.
Well, it's off to the salt mines. I've got to ratchet up the organizing here if I'm going to have any room for the loom. It's going to be a loooooong month and a half. Can't wait. Take care, All.
