Finished Shawl

This week's quilt along blocks - 

I can see this one needs to be pressed better -

It is the Sampler 1880 Sew Along block from the Temecula Quilt Company blog, a 4" block.

This one is the Moda Blockhead 2, block #10 'Ducks and Ducklings', a 12" block.

This week I finished knitting a shawl with some of my first handspun yarn.

The pattern is Campside by Alicia Plummer, a free pattern from Pom Pom Magazine.

Not only is the yarn from 2013 when I first started spinning, but it is also one of my first hand dyed yarns. It is a soft merino alpaca blend (one ply of each). I had started a couple other projects with this yarn, but they never seemed right. I am really happy with this.

I also finished weaving this little sample project using leftover handspun from the Granny Stripe blanket. I'll probably make a pillow with it.

All the best!♥︎

I think everything you do, Joanne, is a work of art. Your talents are just amazing! I love the pink shawl. It's so beautiful.
