Upcycling old denim into long strips to make a sturdy yarn. I plan on making a rug, either knit or crochet.

This is Sev(en) cirlce, a pattern by Kirsten Johnstone. I absolutely love it. A clever and fun pattern using leftover bits of special yarn gives you this fun knitted accessory. Somewhere between a cowl and a necklace, it keeps your neck just warm enough. I've made two already, and just started on a third. I may need an intervention! This one was made with a leftover skein of a merino-silk blend, and its drapes beautifully.
This is the Summertide shawl, a pattern by Helen Stewart. It was a breeze to knit, relaxing and enjoyable. I used Faro, a wool singles lace-weight yarn that I picked up recently at the Woolery in the Frankfurt, KY. The 100% wool content of this yarn makes for a crisp final product with great stitch definition. I would certainly use this yarn again. Looking forward to wearing the shawl often this spring and summer!
