...winter has come and gone and, at long last spring has appeared!

 And with the change of seasons I have finally finished a project...

 Pattern: Whippoorwill by Carina Spencer
Yarn: My hand-dyed (Skein) Frog and Toad Sock, colourways used 'Knight' and 'Beach Shack'
Needle Size: 4mm/US6

This pattern was love at first sight. I loved the wavy eyelet section and the combination of two contrasting colours, plus I really liked the shawls crescent shape.  The project itself was very enjoyable, quick and easy..I cant say enough good things! 

Also, I have a new project on my needles...

...Cecily Glowik MacDonald new pattern Candelia,  a top down, in the round cardigan with pockets, sure to be  a great new addition to my spring/summer wardrobe.  I decided to road test my Merino/Cashmere yarn for this project, which is knitting up wonderfully.

So finally, after such a long time away from the blog, I hope that you are all well and are enjoying the long awaited spring sunshine or admiring the beautiful colours of Autumn.

Another Obsession

I finally did it, I bought a spinning wheel!

After nearly having a nervous breakdown trying to assemble it, I finally sat down and attempted to spin some Corriedale fibre with the help of Judith MacKenzie McCuin's book (Teach Yourself Visually Handspinning), and YouTube (such a great resource!).

And this is what I have so far...

...yes its a big mess, but it is so much fun, oddly very relaxing and like knitting its has become a daily activity which I very much look forward to.
