Hi, I've been a bit busy, knitting on the bus, during lunch breaks and yesterday I put the finishing touches to this.

Traveling woman finished

I dyed the merino after it had been spun and the pattern is Traveling Woman by Liz Abinante .

Well worth all the hard work Sue, it's beautiful.

It's beautiful! My spinning is a little better in that I don't keep breaking it, but I seem to be making it rather chunky and uneven! I'll keep practising!

What a gorgeous Travelling Woman! Bogger than mine, which I'm sure works very well - mine is really too shallow for my broad shoulders and I may have to give it to my slender daughter and do another one for me. I was wondering about doing 3 "pivots" rather than one, but maybe a bigger one would be the way to go... Well done, and what good taste you have!

Looks lovely now it is finished. Tell me it a shawl and not a cover for your spinning wheel.

Wow! This is very pretty. The knitting is so...delicate. I usually think of knitting as "chunky". The yarn is incredible

Wow, look at the pictures from round Builth Wells! It was so lovely to meet you and thanks for recommending my blog post.

I do hope you are enjoying your wheel. If only my craft room was as tidy as yours.
