Two Hats

Just finished my second hat for BISS. I'll get a third one out of the yarn I had which is a good result.

............................

Have today started an ideas sketchbook related to knitting and fibre crafts in general. I still have my entry to Kerrie at Hipknits' Alexandra Palace competition to make up. I've been scribbling some ideas down over the last few days. Just hope I have enough yarn to complete one of them. Here are the mini skeins I was sent to transform.



............................

My spinning is coming along. I was trying to achieve a DK weight yarn rather than the 4-ply I managed for the Rare Breeds show, but have gone too far the other way and ended up with Aran. I guess it's all trial and error to start with. I'm aiming to knit up an old favourite cardigan pattern that I loved as a teenager. I have still to stumble across this however and am praying I have kept it in the loft.

Thanks for commenting on my blog. Yes the skein is dyed and spun by myself. One single with a z-twist and the other single with a s-twist.
I like your blog. You combine the crafts that I am interested in. I´ll be back another day.
And babelfish translated your comment very well!
