Hello from a family bank holiday in the North East. In this episode I talk about itching to start something new and how going to a yarn show doesn't do anything to reduce the inflammation!
On and Off the Needles
I have seamed the handspun listener Woolsack cushion (details on this Rav page )
I also finished the little squares for the front of the Make Do and Mend cushion by Anna Elliot. The back for this was made by the lovely Carotrike. One more left on the needles, based on Circle Socks by Anne Campbell.
In The Weaving Shed
The actual weaving in progress.
You can also see the yellow of the contrast clasped weft.
Nearing the end...
Something I really like

Music: Rondopolska by Barry Philips, from the album Tråd, available from Magnatune.
We have a listeners' map. Please go on over to pop in a pin - we're covering 5 continents now but I'd still love to see where you all are!
