I’m proud to say this shawl is made from my own handspun yarn 🙂 I bought this merino wool batt at the Redlands Spinners & Weavers Open Day last year. Such beautiful colours.
The pattern I used is the Playground Shawl which is a free pattern on Ravelry.
I think this is a pattern I may have to revisit! It sits beautifully around my shoulders without the feeling that it’s going to slide off. This is probably more to do with the texture of the wool and boucle rayon.
I spent the afternoon with some wonderful friends at my Knit and Knatter group followed by dinner in the evening with my son and parents. It was the best birthday ever 🙂
These cute little sheep joined my flock recently. They were spotted in some Opp Shops and literally jumped right into my arms!
I’ve been busy practising weaving on my brand new Ashford 50cm Knitter’s Loom which I will show you in due course. I’m so fortunate to have an Ashford agent in my spinning group as I can ask lots of questions and get lots of help.
That’s all my news for now. Suffice it say, I am kept very busy with all my crafts: knitting, crocheting, spinning, dyeing, Addi machine knitting, inkle weaving and now weaving on a larger loom 🙂
Until next time…
