Last night I crafted like a woman possessed or obsessed, either way.
I practiced more weaving and began to get into a rhythm. It occurred to me that just like in knitting, if you relax into it and don’t fret too much about tension and getting everything just so your hands naturally work to create an even tension. Because, look…
…the edges are getting neater, still not perfect, but definitely better.
Then I practiced some more on the drop spindle to get something that vaguely resembled spun yarn, this is going to take some work I think. My drafting is a bit, how can I say…
This is the fruits of my efforts from last night.
A bit thick and thin all over the place but hey, I’m enjoying the practice, so much so that when I eventually looked up from spinning I found it was one o’clock in the morning and way past my bedtime. Talk about time flying by when you’re having fun.
So I was having so much fun last night I forgot to show you an adorable purchase I made yesterday in a little craft/gift shop a couple of doors down from Onabee. Here he is
He’s a tea for two rabbit and he needs a name really, I shall have to put my thinking cap on.
Lastly, which is quite appropriate really my 4th parcel finally came. It’s a lovely book by Lucinda Guy called Northern Knits because I love the traditions and history of the knitting of Scandanavia and the northernmost islands of Britain.
Well that’s me for now, ttfn x
