Karis


Karis, she's finished! I am tired of ponchos so I decided to modify her into a cape(sm cape-capelet I guess) I ordered some red glass buttons to go on her. Tiny, delicate, frosted orbs. I think I will place them in pairs at the top when I get them and sew them on I will model it!

I also learned that scotch tension can not only be tightened but also loosened! Duhh! Thankfully the knowlegeable ladies at FiberTraditions Yahoo group enlightened me. Thanks Vanessa! Now I can spin any weight I want not just worsted or aran! This picture is a sample of a single doubled over on itself! Yay!!!

Karis looks lovely. I also think the Lavender Garden shawl you made looks wonderful. Thanks for your comment on my blog. I took a look at your spinning, too, and am very impressed. I'm planning on buying a wheel but I'm just a novice and need lots of practice!
