I don't usually get to see the end product of my dyeing efforts, but Kathleen came in and showed me what she had spun up with my hand dyed merino. She even called me the "dye master", which I quickly demurred. However it was very nice to be appreciated, especially since another gal had just left and said she didn't like any of my colors.
Kathleen did a great job of spinning the fiber and plying it so that all of the colors pop. Merino isn't all that easy to spin - her yarn is so nice and even -- you wouldn't think it was hand spun.

Donna finished her lace bead shawl. It is so gorgeous. She took a beaded lace class at Woolbearers and really went to town.

Here is another one of Donna's projects. She double stranded Kauni with Lambs Pride and got a very subtle color change effect. Can't wait to see it felted.

Gwen never ceases to amaze us all. Here is her version of "Daybreak" using hand dyed (by Gwen) Wildfoote in orangey-yellow tones with Mini Mochi for the striping -- it is just perfect.

Laurie finished her first sweater for her granddaughter. Pattern is Kyler's Kardigan and she used Plymouth Kudo. Kudos to Laurie for a job well done.

Yes, I even finish things once in a while. Here is Jared Flood's Quincy. Made out of Classic Elite's Ariosa - a merino/cashmere blend. It practically knit itself. So yummy!

Joanna is working on Jared Flood's "Bridgewater" out of Jojoland superwash Melody. I think we'll make every pattern in Made in Brooklyn.

Elda is working on a sweater from Curvy Knits out of Four Seasons. Lots of boring stockinette, but she is making progress.

Here's another crochet project from Gwen out of Cherry Tree Hill sock yarn and the same one from Judy out of Mini Mochi

Rachel is doing socks from Cookie A's book out of Jojoland superwash Melody.

Cecelia decided to make the Wrap Me Up shawl out of Boku and is so pleased with the pattern that she is now making another out of Paintbox. Love those colors.

Brenda knit up this lovely sweater from French Girl Knits out of Cascade Eco wool and is busy making another sweater for her mom out of the same wool. I couldn't resist showing off a picture of her sweaters along with the Namaste bag that holds all her project.

Pam knit a beautiful shawl out of the Claudia Handpaint French Scarf kit and make a bag to match out of K1C2 Italian Ice.

I just love this baby blanket that Sandra made out of Cashsoft DK. It's a design from Natural Knits for Moms and Babies. I have to admit that I like her color choices better.
