Seems a while......

since I put a post up although I think it is only a couple of weeks. Life has been busy with a Nottingham Bobbin Lace society meeting on Saturday followed by a Weavers, Spinners and Dyers meeting on the next Saturday complete with jacket potatoes :-)

The weather has been cold, frosty at times but no snow although I think that will come back again soon. When the weather gets like this I always seem to get a desire to do something repetitive like knitting or lacemaking so I have been practising making holes on this scarf ( shop bought yarn).

I've been making fluff with the drum carder, digging out some fibres for a ravelry challenge and spinning some merino that I dyed a while ago.

My creation

I've also spun up some oddments that were collecting in one of my storage jars.

Yesterday I dropped off some fabric at the workshop and stopped to admire the work produce the the young embroiderers during the applique workshop. With ages ranging from 7 to 15 these are some talented youngsters so I rolled up my sleeves and got to work threading needles and helping with the the bondaweb.

That frosty photo is beautiful. Did you take it yourself?

Oh, and I meant to say, I really like that 'oddment' yarn - the colours have worked really well.

Your spinning looks great - lovely colours. I love the picture of the frost too x

Ruth said...

Your yarn looks great - a lot more even than I can make, that's for sure!

I love the frost picture right by the knitting. I see the similarities and it's really neat. The orange yarn is great! It's so refreshing seeing the kids into being creative and sharing their work. So often, these days, kids that age get a bad rap.

the lacy scarf looks great and the fluffies are an antidote for cold gray days
