Yes it has been a long time since I've blogged. June was both a sad and happy month. My Aunt Adeline died in June due to diabetic complications, while I was in hospital. then later in the month our grandmother celebrated her 90th birthday!! July was crazy having to get used to being newly diagnoised diabetic. Anyway as far as fiber goes I have been doing pretty good keepin busy. I have been working on Daja's shrug it will be finished so she can wear it in Sept. I finished a baby hat and I have started another that is part of a set for twin boys. I purchased the Boxleaf Shawl pattern from knitspot.com pattern shop and I spun up the yarn myself. I used the fiber from the Southern Cross Fibre Club that I joined through ravelry.com. I love ravelry, I have made some very nice friends there. I have pictured of the hat and the fiber and the begining of the spinning. I also have pictures to post of other things I've been up to. I hope to get a lesson on how to start the actual weaving process next week then watch world cause I'll be weaving like a crazy woman lol.
This picture is of the start of the new hat I am making for the Sletten twins. This is so easy and I love Fair Isle knitting too so easy and to think I was afraid to do it and have so far knitting 2 different patterns though both have been hats. I hope to make a felted purse next month.
This here is the Masham wool fibre that I got for my May installment of Southern Cross Fibre Club. I ordered 8 more ounces so that I would have enough to spin up for my Boxleaf Shawl that I am anxious to start knitting. The yarn is drying now, and then once dry I will wind into a center pull ball and start knitting my goal is to have it done by Sept. 9th so I can wear it for our 3rd anniversary.
Here is the baby hat, it was fun knitting it and it would have taken me only 3 days had I not had a few days that I was sick. I am already starting the other 2 hats that Iwant to get done by a week from next Monday.
