Long time no blog.....

I have been a very naughty blogger, in fact haven't blogged in ages, mind you lots and lots has been going on. First off on the knitting front, knitted a lovely shawl in my own hand spun silk/merino mix, very pleased with thius, the pattern is called Lemon Squeezy as in "Easy peasy lemon squeezy".
Top left picture is of a beautiful knit and I mean it is so nice to knit "Opelia", knit in gorgeous soft malabrigo in emerald colour. This was a joy to do, sorestful, knit in one piece all the way up, the only seams to sew were the shoulders.
Also I am waiting for my Forsyth Mini combs and clamp to arrive, can hardly wait for this, It seems to be the next episode in my spinning, doing the raw fleece bit. Have ordered a blue faced leicester fleece, which I shall wash etc and the comb and spin and then dye....such a great exciting process. Nought much else to report, will try not to leave it so long next time, hope alls happy in their knitty spinning worlds..byee for now xx
