only spinning

I’ve been feeling a little under-the-weather for the last wee while (nothing serious, don’t worry), and with losing LadyBug and being out of my routine I’ve been a bit unsettled.  It’s spilled over into my crafting where I haven’t been making much progress.  I have a little pile of recently cast-on knitting projects I don’t feel like working on, bits of cut-up fabric I don’t feel like sewing together and a half painted floor I don’t feel like finishing.

I have been spinning though.  The results of my fibre-dyeing have already made it onto my wheel – this the cashmere finn blend from my last post –

I’m trying to spin up a couple of these little balls each day, and sorry, a wheel picture might have been more interesting so that will follow!

I’ve decided too to knit another FlukraGudrun’s new shawl pattern is extremely lovely, and I’ve worn the one I test knit almost every day.  This might take a while, but this is what I’m going to make it with –

This is merino/silk from A Verb For Keeping Warm.  Having a boss that travels a lot to wonderful yarn stores is a tremendous thing!  In an attempt to actually get this done, I’m going to spin a little more (I’m almost a third done), then ply the singles and start knitting.  Actually seeing it on the needles is going to make me want to spin more.  That’s the plan anyway…

  1. Looks beautiful Sarah , love those shades of blue. I , too , keep casting on and losing interest , think it must be the weather and two small boys that keep distracting me . Hope you feel a little more like yourself soon. Mx

    • Thanks! I just realised that everything I’ve cast on in the last few days has been blue too, going to try some red socks next week to get out of it!
