Finally - pictures!

Worsted wgt.; 3 ply. 2-Romeny/Columbia, 1-Merino

This worked out great! Love the patterning.  Ski hat and fingerless mitts.
I think this is more Romeny/Columbia in maroon. White is generic wool.

Tam and mitts; merino with beads added as knitted.  "Wave" pattern
Sorry about that streak in the middle. Don't know what that's all about!

You can see the beads better on the mitt.

And now - the poncho.  Finally got the collar knitted.  The colors look a little off in the pictures; sorry.  But they are beautiful Fall colors!

This is the true color of the poncho

Wishing you all a great spinning and knitting day!!

Wow. Just Wow! And I was happy I finished a blanket and figured out a lace pattern. Beautiful work!

Wow, I am seriously impressed. You got so much accomplished. And everything is drop-dead gorgeous too!

That was a lot of spinning, all that blue worsted weight yarn. I don't do well spinning the same color for such a long time. Maybe one day I'll work up to it, but for now it's small batches so I can change fairly often. :)

I really love the white tam and mittens, with beads. I would love to know where you got the pattern, if you don't mind. Also, that poncho. Just amazing! I love the style and the colors you chose. Beautiful! Beautiful!

As for entrelac knitting, you can download a PDF tutorial to learn entrelac and knit a scarf here:

Everything is beautiful. The blue yarn is similar to what my daughter picked out for socks. Love the collar on the poncho. I have seen them with hoods but not collars. Is the pattern on ravelry or available on line? Have a great weekend

Wow, you have a lot accomplished. I love the beads in the hat and mitts. Your handspun is beautiful.
