Happy New Year!
A Swedish Finull and silk yarn, woollen spun. First I’ll knit a pair of long wrist warmers for my husband, then, well, we’ll see! It’s been a good year for me. I’ve spun a lot, I achieved my master spinner title, I bought a new old Saxony wheel, and a loom. I’ve gotten several new friends in the spinning world, and also met some of those amazing people in real life. I’ve got many good books for my textile library.
There was also sorrow: my lovely mother in law passed away a few weeks ago. She had a long and productive life, and she was the same sunny person until the end. We miss her, and we remember her with love and gratefulness.
I hope your year has been good, and wish you all a Happy New Year!
Oh, Barbro, so sorry to hear about your mother-in-law. Even when we know and think we are prepared it is still difficult.
I am so encouraged when I see your spinning! You do such a beautiful job. I bought a small Herdwick fleece from Scotland and ‘/sweet Pea’ as I have named her is the exact colour as my dog…the dog fur is softer 🙂 But this will be for an outer sweater and I do like working with her and yes, I knew what i was getting. Fleece very clean too.
Happy and Healthy New Year to all of you!!
Thank you, Susan!
I have half a Herdwick fleece in the attic waiting for the right day. Interesting wool. I hope 2015 will be the year when I have time to spin from the stash (it’s pretty, well, big…)
BIG? Really?? Join the club………..we will all have to live until we are 105 years old 🙂
