I had a new delivery of roving wool on tuesday, so i have been doing more spinning. I really love the colours on this corriedale wool.
These pictures make the colours look a little washed out, but believe me they are so jewel-like and beautiful. Keira wants some of this wool plaited into her hair for her Prom.
I have also been crocheting. I have finished Keiras blanket, and moved on to Imogens.
I'm using different stitch this time. I am using Crochet Geeks abstract cat afghan crochet pattern. It can be found here: http://www.crochetgeek.com/2009/04/abstract-crochet-cats.html
Im liking the way it is working up. Imogen chose her colours.
Also last week, i got the urge to make a friend a last minute birthday gift. I had bought her a colouring book and some new pencils, but i felt she needed something to put her new pencils in.
So I made this:
I had everything in my fabric box already, and i had thought for a while that the fabric was perfect for her, I just hadnt thought of a project for them both. Everything fell into place and she was so pleased with her gift. It made me smile.
Chick Update: They look like eggs. But we are edging closer to the exciting days.
5 days to go!
