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’ve decided too to knit another Flukra. Gudrun’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…
