The Uncreative Crafter Episode 2: Tales from the Blue Lagoon

I seem to have done it again! Welcome to Episode 2 of The Uncreative Crafter, Tales from the Blue Lagoon. I’ve learned my lesson: orange salt lamp + orange shirt = too much orange!

Finished Objects:

Amanda Hat in Punta Yarns Merisoft Hand Painted Aran, colorway HP64

Seasons scarf, woven in Cascade 220 in black for the warp and Ella Rae Seasons in colorway 1 for the weft (I get this wrong in the video, whoops!)

Stash: nothing

The Long Crawl:

100% merino spinning from Good Fibrations

Plymouth Yarn Happy Feet socks (I’ve done the flap, need to turn the heel)

Working on:

Sockhead Hat in Dream in Color Smooshy in the Blue Lagoon colorway (stashed since 3/2009; working on for the Just One More Row podcast’s Clean Slate Challenge)

Weaving a scarf: warp & weft are both Jojoland Melody Superwash in the MS16 colorway (stashed since 9/2010; not eligible for the Clean Slate Challenge as it’s weaving)

Name The Colorway!:

YouTube commenter Rayania suggested I name these kinds of colorways; I dubbed the Jojoland Mermaid Tail

What I Got For Christmas:

12 dent rigid heddle for my Cricket loom

Gleener (first heard about on Ready, Set, Knit!)

Drafting: The Long and Short of It DVD by Abby Franquemont (I also mention her Respect the Spindle book)

Doomsday Knits (I mention Thrumivator by Michele of PDX Knitterati)

The Fleece & Fiber Sourcebook (I also mention In Sheep’s Clothing and The Knitter’s Book of Wool)

On The Edge:

Wreck This Journal (I first heard about this on Wovenflame’s blog; here is her first post on it)

I bought art supplies! Oil, acrylic and watercolor paints, which also came with oil pastels

Fitbit Flex (wanna friend me on Fitbit? Let me know!)
