What I’ve Been Wearing
A bit of everything really. It has been nice to get home and have a good rummage through all my finished pieces. I’ve had the opportunity to wear a few of my favourites this week – primarily my January Morning cardigan, the Persian Bull mittens, Vortex, the Unwind Wrap (a.k.a. Violetti), a Bobble Hat and of course, my ever-present Stripelets.
What I’ve Been Knitting
Safe to say… not wool. I was tempted by bamboo and silk yarns and have been knitting those instead.
What I’ve Been Spinning
Still nothing! Have spent some of the week drooling over spinning wheels online. When I get a proper job I’m getting one. I did get the HilltopCloud Best of British November Fibre in the post this week. It is a 75% Shetland / 25% Kid Mohair blend called ‘Sitka Spruce’ and it is gorgeous. I have an immense urge to start spinning it up immediately but am being sensible and not doing that (since I have other things to do) – so have resorted to keeping it next to me on the sofa and just pet it occasionally.
