First item from Homespun

Postby Alison h » Mon Apr 30, 2012 10:42 am

A while ago I bought a drop spindle and 200g wool fleece from Forest Fibres. I started spinning and then abandoned it.

However, I have now finished spinning, plying etc, and have knited a hot water bottle cover in my variegated, interestingly-textured (to say the least!!) homespun.

I will post pics once I have sewn it up. I am proud.....
Still not sure what I want to be when I grow up

That sounds great. Have I missed the pics? You should be proud. I have got as far as buying a book about spinning and viewing spindles and fleece on the internet, and its definitely something I will do at some point.
