It’s always nice to see a process from start to finish with a customer, which is a rare thing when you work online. So it’s great to be in touch with a customer of mine from the Somerset Guild’s Talk back in March.
In the blog post about the day you can see Anita spinning away on Dartmoor, another of my colourways. Below are the pictures Anita sent me for my new Polwarth base in colourway Indian Summer (the base will soon be in store!)
It looks like it’s spinning up nice and fine.
I wonder what it will become?
Thank you for sharing!
A big thank you to Rosy Retro and everyone who took part in the SAL KAL, we had a fabulous time and really got inspired to knit from our handspun. Here is some of the work;
Middle left to right - My Batt Droppings Poncho using my batt waste and grey Ryeland. Elaine’s Raspberry Chocolate Pink Cardi using my Merino Blend and another dyed purchased elsewhere. Alex’s Handspun Norie in my Shetland colourway After the Storm.
Bottom left to right - Tab’s shawl using Polwarth bought from Fibre Fancy on Etsy. Muriel’s Shetland Vanter Mittens in my colourway After the Storm. Marilyn’s Drift Away shawl in my Merino Tencel Blend Malachite.
The prizes have been claimed and I think we are all now insipred to work more with our handspun.

I’m quite aware that I look overly pleased with myself… and yes, to be honest I am. I love knitting with Handspun! Why, oh why I don’t do it more often I just don’t know… I’ll have to get the wheel out and remedy that.
In the meantime I do have some hand spun yarn waiting to be knit… the pattern search begins!
The SAL KAL continues until May and everyone has really got stuck in… I can’t wait to see more finished pieces.
I’m planning the next SAL KAL as I type.
