Follow Up

This is the follow up to two posts from this week. About Selkie and the Yarn Harlot

I had hoped that the Yarn Harlot would post a blog post about the event on Wednesday so I could link back to it, but alas, she hasn’t posted anything yet. I’ll definitely link to her post once it goes up though!

For now though I’ll post the pictures I took on Wednesday at the event.

The talk/reading itself was great and as you can tell I had an amazing seat.
I actually made her a mini-hexipuff as a present. She was who inspired me to start blogging and to learn to spin.

Then she signed my book!

Now onto my SelkieLike I said on Tuesday it was blocking and drying as I typed that post. Yesterday I finally got around to sewing the buttons on. The cables themselves flattened out a little bit more than I would like but it’s completely wearable.

I also went for the optional ‘sleeves’. Basically you sew the bottom of the raglan seams. It has the added benefit of keeping it from flaring out in the back which is nice.

One last thing.

Remember this yarn? That I dyed last year?

Well, it’s finally going to become something! It took me almost a year to decide what to do with it but I know what I’m going to do now. A simple scarf that will show off the color but will also have a visible pattern. I think I found the best of both worlds.

 

Enjoy your weekends!
