A LOT OF SNOW

I could say that I did not blog in the last 3 weeks because of the snow. But no, even if we have (had) a lot of it, the reason is just lack of time and more work than usual.


Anyway, I finished at last the center blocks for my confetti quilt, and a good thing too!

It should not take that long now to add the sashing but I still don´t have a clue what kind of border I will sew. We will just see how it develops itself.

Of course I spun a bit too. I MUST learn how to use that wheel, right?!
From some merino/alpaka top


I spun some thin yarn:
And from 2 different merino tops which I mixed,

I tried to spin some rustic (!) yarn. I mean that I wanted a yarn with some thinner and some thicker parts with character. At least it is a very soft squashy yarn and with 250 gr. I should be able to knit something bigger out of it.


That´s all for today. I will go and have a look outside now to see if the snow is still falling.
I can´t say I am a fan of snow!


Have a nice time and try to make the most of the weather!
