On a Roll....

I'm still here, the weeks are starting to pass in a blur but the wheel has been turning with this mix all week. It's the merino/silk/cashmere/angora, Rosie gifted to me in the UK swap back in March, dyed by me! All ready to ply when I have a few hours to spare!

I am doing a little knitting, I finished a pair of aran handwarmers this week for my mother-in-law, infact they were finished in an evening and a half, just a basic vanilla handwarmer pattern. I've also cast on for another pair of Scrunchie Handwarmers, as there was almost enough Trekking left. Not quite enough yarn left to do a pair so I'm just working less ruffles!

This is the second project off my new wheel, (sorry Lesley no photos of my baby bean yet but it looks like this one). The weather has been so bad I feel lucky to get photo's at all!

Ok so here we have 340metres of aran weight merino, about 11 wraps per inch.

I've also lowered all the prices in my etsy shop to reflect the strength of the $, and added some more merino last night, I will hopefully upload some Bluefaced Leicester later in the week if the weather improves enough for photographs.

This is the first skein off my new wheel, Jellybean...hence I gave it the name...Beansprout, I've also finished spinning the other braid, I have about 265 metres altogether.
I realised this week that I had probably dyed too much for the Knit Safari tomorrow, but that means I can take it easy for a bit and concentrate on spinning, knitting and filling a second order of Lavender bags, I also need to make some more sticks of rock too.
