Breed Blanket Project Progress

Clockwise from upper right:
Brown: Manx Loaghtan / White: Targhee (This will be a corner square)
Dark Grey: Shetland / Medium Grey : Romney (Edge)
Med-light Grey: CVM / White: Polwarth (Edge)
Grey: Corriedale / Ivory: Cormo (Corner Square

I’m currently spinning Rambouillet and am knitting a Lincoln / Charollais square.

This beautiful fiber was sent to me several months ago by a dear friend. It’s the perfect Christmas season spin! The Icelandic Horn spindle seemed a fitting choice.

With a mug of Golden Milk (Turmeric, Cinnamon, Ginger, honey – also from the person who sent the fiber – and a dash of pepper) which seems to help me sleep better.

Merry December month! May it be a month of getting the important things done, not stressing about the minor stuff, and choosing to enjoy the season.

I never dreamed my life would be entangled with fiber and the tools used to produce fibery items. When I bought a boat shuttle used in weaving Ed looked at it, decided to make a better one and the rest is history. For a decade he made shuttles, crochet hooks, knitting needles, and a dozen Great Wheels, until his spindles became so popular that he had to devote his time to making only spindles. Free time is spent reading, trying to coax food from the ground, and playing in the creek near our place. I love long walks and camping far from crowds. Playing a fiddle beside a stream or with good friends brings sweetness to my soul. Sundays are set aside for worshiping God with our small, Scotts Mills Friends Meeting and occasionally riding our bicycles on sunny afternoons.

  1. I love seeing the progress that you are making! These are turning out beautifully. And I really can’t wait to see all those beautiful colors spun up 🙂

    1. Thanks! I started at the “white” end of the roving and am eagerly anticipating the colored sections after all the natural wools I’ve been spinning much of this year.
