Well, there's rather a lot to show this time so I think I'm going to split this post into two.
Starting off with a skirt I made after seeing a sew-along on Daisy's blog and being inspired to do a bit of garment sewing.
The pattern is McCalls 3341 as used in the first series of the Great British Sewing Bee.
Of course by the time I bought my fabric (on a recent trip to UK) and got it sewn up everyone else had finished but I enjoyed it for all that.
I was so pleased with the skirt that I decided to tackle a dress next which is presently at the cutting out stage
The fabric is inside out - much nicer than it looks here.
I've done quite a bit of knitting and spinning.
Last time I showed some fibre I was spinning and here's the shawl (details on my Ravelry page) I knitted up from the spun yarn
and I've spun some merino silk fibre into this very soft and smooshy yarn. The colour is not showing up very well on my monitor. It's a kind of rich blackberry colour. I'm not sure what I'm going to knit with it yet.
Margaret asked to see a picture of my spinning wheel so here it is.
Isn't she pretty?
Now on to the knitting.............a pair of socks were finished a few weeks ago
and here's a very small start on the Entangled Vines cardigan I've started
So I think that's it for this knitting/sewing post. I'll be back tomorrow with the cross stitch.
Thanks as always for visiting :)
