I hope the weather has been kind to you – I have been enjoying the spring sunshine, and happily crafting away. Shiela, of www.handspinner.co.uk, is running a competition which coincided nicely with my plans – to enter you have to create something inspired by her photo of blossom.
I spun a two-ply yarn, one strand was tencel, the other a repeating colourway of various tufts of pre-dyed merino and some white shetland fibre. In a rare moment of ‘finish-a-project-itis’ I picked up my needles and put together a top-down hat. There wasn’t a lot of yarn, so it’s baby-sized, but that meant that the stripes worked out pretty well (and the only head it would fit was that of a toy rabbit…):
