My Creative Space

My Creative Space is all about wool.  I thought I would have moved on as my sewing list of things to do is getting longer but this spinning caper has me captive.


This wool is being washed as I type.  It was unwashed fleece and the first thing I have spun, I loved the feel of the lanolin as I played with it.  It looks pretty good and I am hoping I can find a project for it at some stage.  I like the effect of the light wool and dark together.



This was the roving I have mentioned before but it is now washed and ready to go.  I just need to cast off the couple of projects I have on the go so I can cast on and turn this into something :)

I have been shopping too.  3 new bobbins, a Lazy Kate, a Niddy Noddy and a book on Spinning.  There will be no stopping now!!

  7. It looks so textured, I want to reach out and touch your pictures. You must have lovely supple hands after all that lanolin! The spinning sounds meditative... I like it.

  12. You are turning into a bad, bad influence. Bet it's highly therapeutic and zen-inspiring too, right?

  13. I usually look at wool from the other end-felling old sweaters. I am sure the spinning is addictive.
