Busy Summer

It's been a busy summer in my studio. In addition to teaching, weaving and designing new garments, I've been learning to spin on a spinning wheel. I purchased this hand-dyed alpaca roving from Creature Comforts Etsy Store and spun and plied the yarn and knitted the sweet little scarf pictured above. This is my first hand-spun, hand-knit scarf. It's so soft and I love the colors. Thank you, Creature Comforts!
On my big floor loom, I've been weaving yardage. This flax blend swing vest was hand-dyed and made in a medium/large size. It's accessorized with a scarf from last fall's collection.

And now that I'm carrying yarn for sale on my shelves, I can't help but knit some of it myself in the evenings. I made this black vest with Prime Alpaca from Galler Yarns. It's so soft and light weight. I can hardly wait for cooler weather so I can finally wear it. I found this fun pattern on Ravelry by Drops Design. I love their style.
The back has a web-like spiral. This picture shows the design but the color is a bit washed out.
