Candy Floss

New set complete and ready for my birthday update on Friday. I'll be putting details of prices etc on here in the next couple of days and finishing off a few more things.
Stanley update...he's doing well, sleeping A LOT and getting lots of LOVE! Vet appointment tomorrow to check he is still OK and stitches out later in the week. He just needs time now I think. He is one hell of a lucky cat!

Poor Stanley

My kitty has been hit by a car AGAIN! Poor Stanley just won't learn how dangerous the road is :(
Waiting for the vet to sort out surgery for him and hoping he will be OK. Spent all day waiting for phone and knitting. I seem to knit faster when I am stressed!
He already has pins in this leg and now he has broken the ankle and maybe his pelvis again. Poor poor Stanley.

Here is my finished skein of rainbow handspun. I am so pleased with how it came out! Now I can't wait to have a knit with it :D
I need more roving....I think I may be addicted!

Spinning Around!

Oh I'm loving the spinning wheel now! Last night I spun another skein of single ply merino in a beautiful blend of black. pale blue and white from
I also did a 2 ply thick and thin yarn from the most gorgeous silk and merino blend in spearmint colours. I bought this from a lovely etsy seller
Another Helter Skelter Handspun hat is also complete. This one has little felted and beads balls stitched on it!

Where I work

Today while sitting knitting in my little studio I thought it might be nice to take pics of all four corners of it. Here you can see my huge stash of yarn, buttons, beads etc etc etc. I LOVE my space :D
Today is very grey and dull outside but inside my space its bright and warm and full of life!

What I'm up to

Trying to keep warm, busy finishing orders, spinning, making fires, making ideas in my head real, cooking soups, doing yoga, NOT drinking wine :(
Aren't I a good girl!
Here's a preview of my newest creation. The Spiral Spun Hat. All yarn handspun by my fair hands and lovingly knit into a funky spiral design. With tiny glass beads sewn along the spiral. These will be OOAK as I only spin small quantities of yarn and there won't be many at a time. They take a long time to make obviously and have so much love spun and knit into them that I'm sure you can see and feel it :D
They will be available maybe near my birthday (February 5th) in celebration of me reaching 44!!
Hope you like :)
