We have been on a family vacation, and I wanted some hand work to take along for the plane rides and long trips in the car.
I am using a skein of Dizzy Blonde yarn/colorway Run Amok to make a scarf.
I wound the yarn into two balls, and I am waiting to see how long it is after one ball before I decide if it is too wide. I generally prefer skinny, long scarves, but I am trying to keep an open mind. Plus, I am basically lazy and don’t want to rip it out to start over!
For my second project, I jumped onto the English paper pieced hexagon craze. No scissors on airplanes, so I prepped a bunch of pieces before leaving home.
I am making diamond units, and I plan to use an argyle pattern, so there will be solid color sections with white Xs. These are 3/4-inch hexagons so this piece will probably end up as a wall hanging.
