Spring frost blanket part 1
It’s been a while since I took part in a CAL, I’ve completed attic 24’s cals before. This time I’ve managed to finish the first part before Friday, when part 2 is released.
I do love the colours & the pattern is really easy.
Purple meditation shawl
I’m working away on my second meditation shawl. I love the colours & textures it produces. I’m over halfway 😊
Sunset meditation shawl
I recently finished my meditation shawl, it reminds me of beautiful sunsets & sunrises. It’s made from 2 yarn cakes of sheepjees whirl. I started from the centre of one & then worked from the outside in on the second one. It really is nice & cosy, but light & not too heavy. It also fits nicely around my meditation cushion, to carry to my meditation group.
I thought I would share my finished yarn with you all
It looks quite different once you twist it up into skeins.
My first yarn is dyed, product descriptions written & finally loaded into my shop.https://folksy.com/shops/Sunstitchstudio
I’m only taking the first steps slowly & still only selling in the UK , everything seems to be a steep learning process, but I’m getting there.
My undyed yarn has arrived from world of wool today. I’ve got two different types, the whiter one is Dorset long horn & the other is New Romney , I thought I would get something local. They have a certain sheepy smell, they do smell different from each other. There was a big choice of British wool, it’s difficult to know where to start. I’m thinking of dyeing three hanks of each colour way.
This week I’ve persuaded my husband to sort through his models & modelling stuff. He has so much squirrelled away in the loft, there are so many boxes coming down, I think it will be next week before I can even think about yarn dyeing. The good news is, it’s making me work of my Puffin embroidery.
Summer garden blanket
Luna is now officially my quality control officer, she’s just checking everything is in order, in particular that I have sewn the label on correctly. She does like to help with product photography, she’s not so keep with helping write product descriptions.
Spending this evening crocheting away at another blanket to sell, once I’ve managed to get started. The business side of things is very much baby steps, with a lot going on in the background.
I started this CAL from attic 24 way back in 2018? Back in the summer when I had the ‘big tidy up’ I found it, put it to one side & a couple of weeks a go, I restarted, the rows are are finished. I have the borders to do & the ends to sew in.
