Weaving: Ocean Dream


So.. Here is what I have now! New hand woven scarf with gradient color change!
It was made with an amazing Socks That Rock that I show you here last time in a great Oceana colorway. I just love all about it: the drape, the color change, the weight of fabric (it has very nice feeling weight). Well... everything :)

Fell in love!

I just have to show you this yarn!
About two weeks ago I've finally ordered a Socks That Rock yarn from Blue Moon Fiber Arts. I was going to buy it for a few months and finally  it's here :) Well, it was here two days ago now.
What can I say? I love almost all of their colorways! They are just awesome! But as I wasn't familiar with this yarn I decided to buy only two skeins to try it for some project.
And when recieved the package I was feeling so bad that I haven't ordered more... The thread is just perfectly twisted and feel so great!
Well, enough lyrics. Here it is :) Socks That Rock lightweight (100% superwash merino) 405 yds/5.5 oz.

Crochet tunic

A few days ago I understood that September is really close and that means that our vacation on the beach in Crimea pretty close too. :) and I want to have something nice to wear on the swimsuit.

So I decided to crochet a tunic. Well, it is pretty optimistic plan as I have about a month till our vacation and this project is not the only one at this time :)

I have a very nice yarn from Valley Yarns - CotLin 50% cotton, 50% linen. I like it so much and I think it's perfect for this project - the crochet fabric isn't warm, pretty light and airy.

The tunic consist of a square motives and here is what I have for now :) it is going not so fast with 1.5 mm hook :) Hope to finish it before middle of September :)

P.s.Oh, and you can follow me on Instagram to see the most fresh pictures of my WIP's. My username is kasi4ka out there :)
