Daze of Knitting

About all I did on Sunday and Monday was knit!   I have three projects in the works now...I keep going from one to the next because I love working with each yarn.  I will be selling these hand spun, hand knit scarves in The Shop, soon.  I'll let you know...

My EARLY HOLIDAY SALE has started at Etsy ~ every item there is on sale at Half Off (50%) now through Thanksgiving.  No need to use coupon codes, all the prices have been lowered via Etsy on Sale. 

I'll be following up this sale with another sale, beginning Thanksgiving Friday and running through December 15.  Same deal: 50% Off Everything at Etsy!

This piece of eco dyed fabric is the last of the recent batch.  It's an old cotton dresser scarf measuring 18x40 inches.  This could become the back of an eco dyed vest that's in my future, something I'll construct from scratch and possibly even handstitch throughout.  The original piece has two areas with French knots of very thick thread, like all six strands of embroidery floss (see last photo).  Stay tuned for my progress reports.

Lovely eco dyes, Connie. These thick French knots, wre they already on the fabric ??? They didn't take any colour of the eco dyeing!?! Fun!

I can't wait to see your knitting projects. I'm very much interested in them.

I love the piece you finish this post with, Connie - such interest developed with the use of knots. These eco-dyes are really terrific.

The gorgeous fabric is further enhanced with those lovely french knots!
