A little spinning and a couple of makes
I had my turn with the spinning wheel and I spun a little amount of wool only as the wheel stopped lots and that or the shuttle had to be turned around by hand needing more practice holding onto the strands of roving the teasing out before it goes through and around. There are three more weeks of the course to do yet and more practice though I think I may felt the rest of the fleece that I have left to do. I am enjoying though learning all the processes of this Sheep to Hat course. This is a little purse from the piece of felt I made last week. I have started knitting the spun fleece I may make a mobile phone case with it or a start of a bag. This is as what I knitted with the amount of wool I have spun. I sold two cable knit cushions last week! They will used for furnishing vintage style a holiday cottage in Norfolk!
