July 30, 2019: Raw Fleece to Finished Object #2

Scrolling through my blog posts, I realized that I hadn't posted the 2nd "raw fleece to finished object" project that I finished back at the end of July. With that said, here it is.

Hat is knitted with Jacob/Columbia cross raw fleece that I bought back at the end of May at the Middle Tennessee Fiber Festival from Rhea Farms of Middleton, TN. I washed, hand processed, hand spun, and knitted hat for this project.

Weaving/Knitting Projects from July 1 through November 11, 2019

When I start feeling unproductive, I like to take a look at my Ravelry page where I store all my projects. This brings me confirmation that I have been productive over the months (even in the midst of moving house in mid-August and teaching multiple weaving classes every week).

Here's a look at my portfolio since July 1, 2019.

(7 items below were commissioned projects)
