Autumn Leaves


Autumn Leaves

Father Christmas was very generous and brought me an Ashford drum carder. Here is my very first handspun from a batt I carded myself. It started off as a red/orange/yellow blend, and I carded it with a leaf green.

So now of course, I need loads more wool. I ordered 12 colours of merino wool (basic colour wheel) from www.forestfibres.co.uk to start me off.

Here is the finished scarf. Crocheted with handspun merino, a sparkle of angelina and alternated with Rachel's space-dyed wool. Backed with a lovely warm fleece. Finished with a gorgeous purple shell button and some pearly beads.

One mitten is nearly finished. It will be lined with the same fleece as the scarf.
