BFL Socks

My first socks made from my own handspun BFL. 2 ply. Dyed after plying. 
These were fun to do as the colours emerged. They are nice & cushy. 


Sweater

This was an interesting project to spin & knit. The dark brown is a short stapled Rambouillet & the creamy white is a much longer stapled British Milk Sheep. Spun semi woollen and the colour lengths were entirely random - whatever I felt like spinning at that moment. 2ply. 12 wpi. 
The cuffs, bottom band & neckband were spun from Shetland Alpaca blend.

Computer Bag

This is a 2014 (first project for the new year) project for a friend - a bag for a laptop. She asked for red, so in my usual fashion I am doing a variegated red using various reds mostly dark with a splash of a bright red. 2/2 twill. 6 doubled e.p.i. Warp is terra cotta, burgundy, red, denim blue & dark green. 5-6 ppi. It's looking good!

Here's a pic of my studio rug completed in December 2013. 

I also finished 2 dog rugs in wool. Within 1 day, my one Aussie had chewed half the fringe off. It's in my shop for a conversion to a bound finish using a purchased trim.
