What have been doing recently?
I've managed quite a bit of knitting, including a cashmere pinwheel cardi (scuse the fuzzies, but I'm still a bit wobbly) and a shawl for next years Chistmas pressies!
But now the boys have moved my loom so that I can get to the back of it easily, I'm hoping more weaving and spinning will be emerging in the very near future.
In the mean time I spent my Waterstones book tokens from Christmas on the best book I have come across in a long time. Although I would recommend buying it from Amazon rather than Waterstones as Waterstones are pants at postage - took 2 weeks to arrive! It is the Hand Weavers Pattern book by Anne Dixon and is the weaving equivalent of the Treasuries of Knitting Patterns by Babara G walker which live by my bed and really are my knitting inspiration. (And the best way to jazz up a plain knitting pattern I have yet found!).
So, if anyone wants me, I shall be sitting with my feet up and my nose in a book!
