This lariat was started last spring (see April 17, 2007) and proceeds very slowly. I am still grasping with the concept and not totally sure how it will end up but have decided to add the planned for beads. The photo of the back of the flower was too blurry but it is covered in blue beads. I am pleased with the way it turned out, even if I can't show it off, but am stalled again on this and don't know why.

I am also stalled on the bag that I started at LAF first due to technical difficulties--solved after seeing The Way We Felt which includes the work of my now favorite felter Lisa Klakulak.

Chameleon Colorworks BFL that I got at conference finally spun up. The yarn on the top is a fingering weight and the bottom much heavier. I haven't measured the WPI nor set the twist yet so not sure how it will all turn out.

There isn't enough for a knitting project so this will probably end up on the loom. I have some green pearl cotton and some blue tencel that might work for a warp but I still have some thinking to do. I want my next weaving project to be more complex but since I am still very early in the learning process not sure which direction to go.

The bowl is something I rediscovered cleaning out a cupboard and is one that my grandmother made in a crafts class. It is very rustic but also very dear.
