A crafty little update

Apologies I was due to podcast this weekend….. but I haven’t a the energy and b with all the visitors I haven’t had a chance to do as much…..

However…..

Some sneaky peeks…… at an A J Aviator hat (pattern from Made by Jacks Mum) made for Young Sir for next winter me thinks…….. or a over hat as he seems to want to wear hats over his hoods at the moment!

Some spinning of Icelandic wool is still happening despite me not enjoying this fibre as much….. I have to go slow and really concentrate and even then I think it’s going to be horribly over spun and squirly…

Some BEAUTIFUL RiverKnits Splendiferous yarn for swatching and knitting up a new design!!!

Some skeined up pomegranate….

And some more sewing in the form of a commission for a very special young lady I used to teach!! (For those not in the know I spent 11-12 years as a full time special needs teacher where we used to live!) and this work is making some pretty but useable bibs for everyday use and for when she is eating!! I drafted up the pattern and made a couple of prototypes!! I’m quite pleased and am now cutting out and making the rest!!
