I’ve been doing a lot of woolspinning lately. I guess it’s a good way to relax from all the hard work I’m doing at the office, it’s just madness there!*
I’ve started knitting a little shrug from my first handspun wool. I just love the way it looks! So much more unique than any wool I’ve ever bought somewhere (and I’ve bought some pretty beautiful yarn in my life). I’m pretty sure I’ll wear this with much more pride than any other thing I’ve knitted before.
Even though I love my spindle, I’m now contemplating getting myself a spinningwheel (I totally fell in love with this little beauty) so I can spin even more yarn faster. I just need to make sure it’s not just a phase I’m going through, but seeing what knitwear I can make with handspun wool, I doubt it’s just a fling…
*I’m sorry you’ll find a bit less of inspiring things, WIP’s, illustrations, things on design on this blog at the moment. I just don’t have time for that right now, but it’ll come soon again, I promise!
