A one day project!

I loved my weaving class at the Yarnery today! It was challenging to think about using yarn in a different way but I really loved getting a project done in a day. We started at 10 a.m. and went to 4 p.m. with a break for lunch. It ended up being about 64 inches long and 9 1/2 inches wide with fringe on either end.

This photo is before it was washed and hung to dry. It's upstairs right now - I can't wait to wear it!

It's a beautiful mix of burgandy, gold and green - very pretty!
In other fiber news, I've started another pair of Bella Mittens for Youngest Daughter. The same yarn (Karabella Soft Tweed) but in gray but and one size larger needles (8).

Teeny-tiny was the theme of this week's Saturday Seven.  A pair of Youngest Child's twill pants, a sweatshirt, two polo shirts, a tee shirt, a pair of shorts and a pair of mittens. Man, that kid is just grow, grow, growing! He didn't even get to wear the mittens (I bought them at the end of the season last year) so they are going to the mitten tree at my church.

Just in case you have a spare pair of mittens or gloves laying around (knitted or otherwise), my church is sponsoring its yearly "Mitten Tree."
Randolph Heights Presbyterian Church in Saint Paul collects new hats, mittens and scarves for distribution at the Naomi Family Residence, the women and children's residence program of the Union Gospel Mission of the Twin Cities.  The RHPC Mitten Tree is collecting until December 20, 2009.

If you are interested in contributing a pair or two, please send them to:
Randolph Heights Presbyterian Church

Have a lovely weekend!
