Start of a Sweater


I finished spinning the fibre that I had drum carded a couple of weeks ago.


I ended up with about 457g, 1640m of a DK weight yarn.


I am really pleased with how this came out - it is well blended but you can still see individual colours and fibres (local wool mixed with silk and yak).


I started knitting a cardigan with the yarn. The pattern is Storm Mountain by Heidi Kirrmaier.


It is a top down, seamless cardigan (the above photo is a good representation of the colour).


I also machine quilted a little lap quilt that my Mom had made for a friend - it is a log cabin with appliqués cut with the Rose of Sharon die on the GO! fabric cutter.


We have had very cold weather recently but today my oldest son and I couldn't resist the fresh snow and went snowmobiling (that's me coming out of where the pond is - our skating rink is filled in with snow now).

All the best!♥︎

Love your yarn! It's going to make a gorgeous cardigan. And the quilt is beautiful. What a wonderful gift to a friend. And lucky you, to be out snowmobiling! I grew up doing that with my parents; great memories!
