Oh my, it's Woolly Wednesday once more and this time I've got lots to show and tell. January has been a time for finishing things. It's one of my resolutions to stop starting things and wandering off when something else catches my eye. (I'm a fickle knitter) Also being stuck in the house due to rubbish weather has helped to keep me near my work basket....
First up I finally finished the Ab Fab throw that I was given a few Christmases ago. (ravelled here.)
I started and finished the Hemlock throw as a gift - knit in Rowan Big Wool it's very snuggly.... (snuggly is a proper word I'm sure)
Last up on the knitting front is the Lonely Tree Shawl which I love!
Right. Now its the time for spinning. I have got back down to it and without all those knitting projects staring at me I feel less guilty about making more yarn. (don't get me wrong - there is plenty on those needles of mine, but that is another post entirely.)
Last summer I was lucky enough to be given 3 portland fleeces from a friend's flock. I've blended it with some merino and have great plans to spin enough to make this. There I've said it in public. That means I've got to do it! There is absolutely no way I could afford to buy the original yarn and I think handspun is the way to go....
