About Me

My photo
Crafts have always been a big part of my life. They have been my obsession yet kept me sane. My latest obsession is crochet. Wool and the finished products have taken over the house. A blog seems like the next step in my woolie journey wherever that takes me. Feel free to pop in and see what I am up to.

Holidays are great!

Just back from a short holiday with family.  I hadn't realized how I needed the break until I was away!  The weather was dry and sunny and we walked for miles and did all the touristy things for a few days.  With very limited internet access, I got a break from technology too.  

Now back and full of renewed energy, its time to take stock and make new lists.

Since the last post I was doing a little tidy up of crochet and came across two lovely little scarves from the early trials of patterns.  I thought it would be a good idea to offer them as bargains in the shop to try and generate interest.  I have to say I was very pleased with the result.  Both have now found new homes and I have made new friends.

Also since the last post I have been working on a design for a simple spinning wheel.  There have been a few time when I felt the need to ply a few yarns together and using a drop spindle seems a bit laborious. Commercially made spinning wheels seem to be very expensive and I feel I can't justify the investment - not just yet anyway! But more on that at a later date.

The hooks were not idle while I was away! I completed two new hooded cowls, a cowl and two new scarves.

Now I just need the spell of fine weather to continue so I can take photos.
