I have finished the spinning from the last post and it is now a 2 ply.
This little bit on the front bobbin is all I had left over.
I can live with that.
Its very nice this spinning, lots of different greens. I don’t know the yardage yet as its still on the bobbin but I suspect it falls short of the 300 yards I always try for.
Knitting has been happening. Still plain stocking stitch socks on the small 12″ circular needle.
These are finished….
These have been started……
They are taking ages because I only pick them up occasionally. They are for me so no rush.
A Wurm hat has been finished….
I’ve had this in my Ravelry queue for years and finally decided to knit it. I used King Cole Riot DK in domino and I made the larger size.
The pattern is well written and easy to follow, I love the way the yarn has shaded in the hat and I have worn it almost constantly since I finished.
Zuzus petals cowl by Carina Spencer.
This is a pay for pattern on ravelry, £3.29 / $5.00 but definitely worth it, I have made this pattern twice now from handspun.
This time I made it from some black sparkle wool I spun at the beginning of the year.
This feels a slight bit itchy on my neck so I am considering undoing it but I don’t know what else to knit it into yet so will keep trying it.
Its a lovely pattern though and everyone comments on it.
With it being a cowl with a shawl front it is so easy to wear.
Cross stitch for Christmas….
This tiny pattern is about 2.5″ square if I remember right without getting up to measure it.
I do love using variegated thread.
Variegated thread once again.
This turned out exactly how I wanted it to.
Both of these are going to be turned into little pin cushion type hanging ornaments. I have little silver bells to go at the bottom too.
Just a matter of finding time to sew them up now.
Sewing has been happening.
A little bit of quilt sewing.
Two different quilt tops, both involving dots.
These are going to be gifted overseas.
I was thinking they were maybe too small as I usually do rectangles and these are just 45″ square but I am beginning to like the square shape.
Finally, a bit of reading has happened.
I have fallen behind with reading this year and this is book 32 of the year.
Mercy by Jodi Picoult.
I really enjoyed this although it did take me about a month to read, not quite sure why.
It starts as a story about a mercy killing but ends as a story about love and loyalty. As with all Jodi Picoult books I have read it leaves me with lots to think about.
Next is something quick and easy..
I love Milly Johnson books. They are easy escapism, I’m so looking forward to starting this.
I think thats it, well done if you are still reading.
I didn’t intend to go on so long but I think I have caught up wih everything now.
