skeleton balaclava

I made this balaclava for my son who like to wear it while he rides around. It is made from my handspun from my sheep. It was from a pattern found on Ravelry so pop over and have a look at it.

dreaming of dyeing

I have been doing some dyeing lately. I went to a guild workshop on creating your own colourway with the very talented Meagan Marshall aka Thylacine. I played around with full strength colour and also lighter shades.
My hope is to spin these roving up and weave some material for a jacket.

new scarf Shizuku

Here is my new scarf. It is the "Shizuku" scarf . I made it after seeing a number of them made by some ladies at the craft group I go to. I used my handspun dyed with food colour. I am really happy with it as it is so nice and soft. A good and easy holiday knit.
