I'm a whitey ford

Warning : the white hue of my skin may blind you. But this paleness is indicative of a few things.

1. Insane busyness with the gainful employment. WOW. Its true, even if you don't believe me ;)

2. Sick. Allergies are out of control and have spiraled into infections. Its ugly. And gross.

3. I've been in the house spinning and knitting!!!! YAY!

So what have I done with myself? How about a finished Snezi Shrug?



Pattern : Snezi Oversized Shrug, from Sensual Knits
Yarn : Noro Cash Iroha
Needle : Takumi Bamboo Circs 10.5 US

This needs a good shrink down. The silk content of the yarn is stretching it out a bit and its oversized to start with. I won't show you the back, because it looks like I'm wrapped in a burlap sack. But if you're on Rav, you can check it out for yourself ;)

And of course, there is spinning, a love with which I cannot be parted for long :




Soon I'm going to set up a gallery of customer knits! I can't believe what people have made with my handspun! If you have made something, please share :)

Oh, I love your new handspins!!! I hope I get that good ;) not yet though - LOL. and if you think you're pale, well you haven't seen me - it's been cold this winter in Wales and I don't get out much!!! Nice shrug too, is the yarn nice to use?

...but pale is nice and interesting and you look like an angel, like there's a haze around you!! You don't wanna look like an orange do you?

Lovely trendy shrug and Im getting some of that yarn too.
Your handspuns are always beautiful.
