New year

New year, new cushion covers.  There is nothing like being in the sitting room in daylight to make you notice the cushions need updating.

Carding tastic

I have to confess that carding is my least favourite part of the spinning process.  Today's session was carding Kerry Hill fleece.  Google them, they look really funny!  My lovely husband and daughters helped me along by singing and playing carols on the piano.

Knitting at the pool.

Have taken my daughter and her friends to the local pool, bit of a win/win situation as I get to be nice mum and get an hours knitting time. ( plus meanwhile dh is cooking roast dinner!)

Cotwold Jumper

I have abandoned the first pattern for this jumper as the stitch definition wasn't good enough in the handspun, so am instead going for a plainer jumper knitted in the round with  a cabled yoke. Well that's the plan anyway.  Have managed some indigo dying this week also, with the focus on variagation.  More to come tomorrow on a madder/walnut/onion skin theme.
