knitty gritty

It's been a while since my last blog, this has a lot to do with the vegetable plot and poly tunnel.
Most crops are in now, I just need a bit more rain to get things going.

Knitter sister came down from Greenock with the latest knits from Minnie and Moira's fleece.

First this goegeous little girls cardigan, its incredibly warm and soft.

Then another hat, this one smaller than the last.

And finally a pair of wrist warmers with a dashing cable down the back and Moira's beautifully soft black fibre trimming around the hand.

We had a great weekend and I taught knitter Sister the rudiments of spinning and felting. She produced her own ball of wool from the bats prepared at the last blog and we created this little bag using jacobs sheep wool, decorated with alpaca and merino.

Lastly, littleholder produced a bag of scrap leather and we spent a happy couple of hours creating these cute little drawstring purses.

Happy days!
