This is kinitted in handspun Gotland fleece - not my favourite to spin or knit, it's a bit fluffy and light for me, but I've done this for a specific project. It's for a Guild competition, an item in handspun. I didn't fancy gloves or a hat again, so am doing this for a change. Will post up the finished bun when she's done; it's a lovely old pattern form one of those vintage Bazaar make books, of which I am very fond. Something quick and easy. :)
The other competition is for a 1 oz skein of handspun, so I whipped this one up. It's a mix of the Blue Face Leicester I did the hat in that was left over, and some sympathetically coloured acrylic I picked up on the Guild table ages ago. I think they work quite well together. The skein just needs to be rewound for better presentation. I don't mind not winning anything, it's nice to take part and see how my spinning's coming along compared to others - I usually find it inspiring (in a hhhmmm, must try harder sort of way!)
....MrsL's knitting blog. "Figheade" is Gaelic for knitting.............I had one a while ago, of a similar name, but amalgamated it with my main blog. However, I think I do enough knitting to justify a separate blog, so here it is ! I'll be putting on spinning too, possibly crocheting, but it will mainly be the knitting - what I'm working on, finished things, knitting for others, my fledgling knitting business, knitting book reviews, good links, bad knitting things (yes, they DO exist LOL). Hopefully you'll enjoy what I'm doing and feel inspired to pick up some needles yourself.
