January 2012 - a busy holiday time
The Thylacine here in Tasmania - she does some beautiful dying.
Top Left - from Fibrefanatic Designs yellow/chartreause Merino
Top Right - from Ewe Give Me The Knits this is Mandie's Licorice Allsorts fibre which I have plied with a black Merino to give it this more licorice look.
Middle Right is the Blackwood (Green) Bond from The Thylacine,
Very Bottom is my very own Merino/Silk/Cat Fur blend - some spun and some still in the Batt stage that I have carded together. It is very nice too!
So you can see that I have been doing quite a bit of spinning and crocheting this month. I am also trying to teach myself how to knit (continental style) - but am giving myself the whole year to do that because I want to knit socks - woolen socks are the best!
I have also been drawing more in my big Journal for 2012 and will post some of that next week perhaps.
Happy Tangling/Quilting for now ... Jane x
I know I have double posted this post on my other blog ... but wanted to share with you all over here too! I have also done the binding on my brother's quilt and a couple of others that are destined for Quilters Companion in July this year.
