Brotherly Love

I've completed a few scrapbook layouts recently, here is one of my eldest son with youngest son, taken 9 years ago. My, how time flies.

Homemade socks

I've finally started knitting my first pair of socks! I tried and tried with DPNs and two needles/ two socks at the same time, but I have resorted to one sock at a time. I found this technique the easiest and quickest. My husband laughed when he found out I was knitting socks, saying it's cheaper to buy a pair of socks rather than buy a ball of wool, and also said I should only knit one sock because we always tend to lose the other one.

Here is the yarn I plan to use to make a Jane Thornley vest. I love her style and plan to slowly work my way through her patterns, the first one being the Sunset vest.

Thank you to my swap partner, Denise, for the gorgeous items I received today. They include a lovely handknitted dishcloth and some bathroom accessories. I love being spoilt. Denise this is much appreciated.

Handspun wool

Here are three balls of handspun wool completed on my trusty spinning wheel. I find spinning really relaxing. Recently I visited a local alpaca farm and bought some beautiful (low micron) alpaca fleece to spin and dye. So many interests, so little time...............
