A Whole Mess of New Pieces

Edge of Winter Scarf | Webster Fiber Arts

Hi folks,

I’ve added several new pieces to my Etsy shop over the past week or so. Let’s take a look!

First up is the Edge of Winter Scarf:

Edge of Winter is a long, striped scarf that I crocheted with Lion Brand Landscapes yarn. I love this yarn so, so much. I like the fall-ish brown, green, gold, and maroon in this yarn. The light blue and purple shades remind me that winter is on the way. You can see more photos and purchase this scarf here.

Another piece with a wintery feel is the Frosted Shawl:

The blues, browns, greens, and purples in this yarn are accented with little tufts of white throughout, which I think gives the fiber a frosted look. This is a wide shawl that doesn’t sit too far down on the back. This shawl is available in my Etsy shop.

Globes of Color is a vibrant, jewel-toned rainbow cowl:

This is a thick piece with a bit of heft. I like how the gold bobbles pop on this piece. See more pictures and purchase this one here.

The Gold & Gray Infinity Scarf is next:

I crocheted this one with a stitch that gives it a knit look, then added a loopy little edging. I like the diagonal stripe of gray in this yarn. This piece is available in my Etsy shop.

Finally, I have The Best Spread Cowl:

The yarn for this cowl is some that I had left over after making Mike a big Jabba the Hutt amigurumi earlier in the year, though this cowl doesn’t resemble Jabba much at all. This one is also available in my Etsy shop.

New Piece: Broken Maroon Infinity Scarf

Broken Maroon Infinity Scarf | Webster Fiber Arts

Hi folks,

How’s it going out there? It is an absolutely gorgeous day here in Kansas City—sunny and in the upper 60s. It is really starting to cool down. It is going to be time for cuddly scarves before we know it. And it just so happens I have a new one to show you today. This is the Broken Maroon Infinity Scarf:

I loom knit this piece with the same hand dyed yarn I used for my Maroon & Gray Neck Warmer. The long stitches in this infinity scarf make a diagonal stripe pattern that I really like.

Until next time,

New Piece: Vineyard Under a Clear Blue Sky Infinity Scarf

Vineyard Under a Clear Blue Sky | Webster Fiber Arts

Hi folks,

In doing all of flood clean up, I’ve come across a bunch of yarn to dye, but we are still living in chaos house, and introducing a bunch of wet yarn and dye to the mix seems like a bad idea. Soon, soon. For now, I am satisfied with showing you some yarn I dyed previously. This is the Vineyard Under a Clear Blue Sky Handmade Infinity Scarf:

I used the “broken” dyeing process on this one, much like my Squid Ink Wrap. This time, I used one of Wilton’s blue-ishcolors (I don’t remember which one—I really need to keep better notes). The reds separated out and left these purple areas that remind me of grapes.

You can see more pictures and purchase this infinity scarf on Etsy.

Until next time,

New Piece: Black Stripe Infinity Scarf

Black Stripe Infinity Scarf | Webster Fiber Arts

Hi folks,

We’ve had a few cloudy and rainy days here in Kansas City, so it seems like a good time to post this gray infinity scarf. This is Black Stripe:

I used soft, acrylic yarn in gray and black for this piece. It feels nice around the neck.

New Piece: Lakeside Infinity Scarf

Lakeside Infinity Scarf | Webster Fiber Arts

Hi folks,

I hope all of you Thanksgiving celebrators out there had a great holiday! Ours was small, but nice. I cooked my first whole turkey ever and it was delicious! We also had a bit of wintry weather, so it was a little icy outside. We stayed in and watched TV, decorated Christmas trees, and I did a bunch of crocheting. My fingers were flying! Everything still needs to be blocked and photographed, but I will get to that soon.

I do have a new piece in the shop today. This is the Lakeside Infinity Scarf:

Lakeside Handmade Infinity Scarf | Webster Fiber Arts | Etsy

This yarn is from Isaac Mizrahi’s collection for Michael’s, though it looks like this particular style is no longer available. I should have bought more, because this cotton yarn is really soft and lovely—it does not feel like you are wearing a dishcloth around your neck.

I’ve had this piece in the “needs to be photographed” stack for a little while now. I finished it back in September. It traveled with me to a Royals game, but I was too squished between the people sitting next to me to work on it before the game started. It was the night Alex Gordon rejoined the team after recovering from his injury.

The yarns in this collection are named after neighborhoods and places. Since I don’t know a thing about New York neighborhoods (except what I see on TV shows), I decided to go with a Kansas City neighborhood name for this piece. Our neighborhood is Highland Acres/Lakeside Heights. I honestly don’t know which side of the slash we are in. I don’t believe there is a lake in the neighborhood, though we have had a lake in our basement before, so maybe that is where the name comes from. The blue and green in this yarn do remind me of water, so I went with “Lakeside” for the name.

New Piece: Smoky Mountain Rain Infinity Scarf

Smoky Mountain Rain Infinity Scarf | Webster Fiber Arts

Hi folks,

I just added a new piece to the shop, the Smoky Mountain Rain Infinity Scarf.

Smoky Mountain Rain Handmade Infinity Scarf | Webster Fiber Arts | Etsy

I worked on this infinity scarf during my recent trip to the Smoky Mountains. It rained almost every minute of our trip, and if it wasn’t raining, it looked like it was going to start. We still spent a lot of time outside, we just got wet.

I think the rainy chill I felt as I worked on this piece kept me crocheting past the point I would usually stop length-wise. I just wanted a big mound of fabric, and I that is exactly what I got. When I finally ran out of yarn, I realized I had something enormous—and I love it! The yarn is soft, which makes this one kind of like wearing a big hug. It wraps you in coziness.

Until next time,
Annie
