Valley Yarns on Ravelry #12 – Charlemont for Accessories

I’m wrapping up the Valley Yarns Charlemont series with a collection of great projects, many of them available for free on Ravlery. There are cozy socks, cute fingerless mitts, a lacy shawlette, and two self-designed weaving projects. Really nice work everyone.

All of this love for Valley Yarns Charlemont has got me itching to start another project using this yarn. I’ve knit and crocheted with it. I think it’s time to finally trying weaving with it too. Leslie Ann has created some spectacular woven pillows using Valley Yarns Charlemont Hand Dyed. She’s working on writing up a draft for them now. Maybe that should be my next project.

What would you like to make with Charlemont?

    I’m using Charlemont for the primary color in weaving a scarf in my clan tartan. It’s soft and lustrous, while the 40% silk and poly reduce the elasticity found in a 100% wool yarn, making it great for weaving. I’m getting a nice, even twill beat at 15 epi, which helps a lot, as tartan has to be symmetrical. Really nice to work with!
