On the sewing front I'm getting close to finishing the 1810 dress, just the ties and the hems to go now, but tis school holidays so my time is limited. Might get some done tomorrow after the dentist though as the boys Grandma is taking them for the day for me, or at least for the time I'm at the dentist up till she gets fed up with them. Youngest is being a bit hard work at the moment, so not sure how long I'll get.
On the knitting front I've finished a very warm cowl using handspun
|This is my Bluegum Islanderry Cowl using handspun singles, it has a V-shaped insert which fills in the gap when wearing a revere collar jacket and it's lovely when it gets cold.|
My main pair is a DK pair for keeping me warm
My other current socks are my travel pair which are being knit in the yarn Mum bought for me in Wales
|I'm using my usual Riverrun pattern by Valerie from Wandering Cat Yarns and I love how they're looking!|
On the spinning side of things I'm taking part in the Tour de Fleece which started on Saturday, here is my planned spinning stash:
|Hoping to finish this bobbin today, it'll then be ready to ply with the other full bobbin I already have|
|Night photography is not ideal, but this is a gradient in approximately Aran weight and will be a Baa-ble Hat once I spin some white in the same base to go with it.|
Best be off and finish this spinning, preferably before the chimney cleaner arrives. There is also of course washing to get in and cleaning to ignore as well.
