Spinning by the fire, originally uploaded by Claire BadcockSo here I was last night just after a feed, starting on a little jumper for the wee girl. I'm making it in the 6 month + size, otherwise she may be too big for it by the time I finish!
My mother-in-law had been given some lovely soft carded but unspun wool from Waverley, for whatever crafting purpose I could think of. I immediately decided to hand it over to my mother for spinning, of which you see above. Mum has been spinning for many a year, usually wool from their own sheep. I can sit and watch her spin all day, but she soon tells me where to go - she doesn't really like being watched.
Oh and take note of the outdated fabric on the lounge chair, these will be changing soon so consider this to be a 'before' photo. Ant chose the fabric years ago, so it's rather bachelor style has seen better days. I'm recovering in a medium/dark grey, nice and monotone and shouldn't date very quickly.
