Green Merino

I’ve spun the first 50g of the lovely forest green Merino I got from Adelaide Walker at the Big Textile Show.

One More Week

First Section of Scarf

I’ve made a start at the scarf I’m making out of the Portland/Coloured Ryeland/Manx Loaghtan that I dyed the other day.

I’m very pleased with what I’ve done so far, but unfortunately I’m out of wool :( 131 more words


One of the most pleasurable things I’ve found to making things is the state of being purely in one’s mind, before hand is put to textile, thinking about what one wants to make, what one will use, and how one will go about it. 427 more words
