I'm currently spinning long draw on my stylus and at the same time attempting to do a video of the process; I've had 3 goes so far and keep cutting my head off and misjudging where the camera is pointing when showing my fibre length. I'll try again tomorrow when the boys are at school. If I can get it sorted I might try doing the odd Vlog.
I'm up to row 42 on my Evenstar shawl, it's feeling a bit like a slog, but it'll be worth it in the end. Only problem is the end looks like it's a very long way away!
Almost finished my current travel sock and have just wound the ball for the second one.
|I'm decreasing for the toe now, this is my dye effort and I'm loving how it's turning out.|
Have finished the fibre and knitting for my advanced spinning group, and I've even sent it off to the North Island for festival. The remnants will be used with some yellow commercial yarn to make boot socks; I need some thicker socks to go in my Caterpillar boots.
|3 ply East Fresian and silk. Flick carded the wool and the silk caps were spun with swearing.|

|Ignore the red, that's the pair I was wearing when I tried these on, I was lazy and left them on.|
|I love the peacock, pity I muffed the one on the other side.|
|It's beautifully soft.|
