Owning lots of fingering weight yarn, what to do with it ---- give it away, continue to store it, or come up with a project to use some of it. In the end, I sorted the yarn into two piles, one pile of clear colors and the other of greyed colors. I'm now working on a shawl/throw (depends on how much yarn I have as to whether it will be a shawl or throw). To the grey pile I added a ball of handdyed mohair in a deep blue/purple color combination.

Project details - fingering weight yarn; size 9 needles; feather and fan stitch pattern; 312 stitches (allows for 3-stitch borders).

With a pile of loops and this frame,
I made these potholders.

What a fun, early, birthday present I received from my sister. This potholder weaving kit, with 100% cotton loops, is from Harrisville Design, Harrisville, NH.

June spiral

The June spiral has shades of blue and green, reminiscent of the sea.
