Two New Pieces: The Light Side and the Dark Side of Gray

Light Side of Gray Cowl | Webster Fiber Arts

Hi folks,

So, that whole “I’m starting to feel lousy” thing from last week? It was a cold. An energy sucking, head congesting, feeling gross cold. I do feel better now, though I am still doing a little coughing and sniffling.

And now comes the catching up. I have a couple of new pieces to show you today. I used yarn that I hand-dyed for both of these cowls. Both are a mottled gray, teal, and purple kettle dyed yarns, but I used different amounts of dye to get different intensities of color.

First is the Light Side of Gray Cowl:

This is a short cowl that I worked in an open, airy stitch, but the yarn is a bulky, wool roving. You can see more photos and purchase the Light Side of Gray Cowl in my Etsy shop.

The second piece is longer and darker. This is the Dark Side of Gray Cowl:

I used a variety of stitches in this one. I love how the little flecks of teal pop out against the dark gray and purple. You can see more photos of this one and purchase it in my Etsy shop.

Until next time,
Annie

New Piece: Mushroom Cap Cowl

Mushroom Cap Cowl | Webster Fiber Arts

Hi folks,

Waaaaa! I am starting to feel lousy. My throat is a little sore. I have been tired the past few days—perhaps I have been trying to fight a cold. It seems like that cold is winning. Booooo! And not the spooky ghost boo from yesterday’s Halloween festivities. It is an “I am dissatisfied” boo. And, yes, I am dissatisfied. Boooooo!

I am, however, satisfied with this cowl. In fact, I really like it. This is the Mushroom Cap Cowl:

I love the earthy colors in the yarn. This colorway is called “Mushroom.” I added some bobbles to my piece to give it some texture, and, with mushrooms already on my brain, I decided these little bumps were the mushroom caps. Yay!

Until next time,
