Well, a little something I did over Christmas. I made felted flowers from my spinning wool. This was my first time in the world of felted botanicals and I was rather pleased with the results. I added some beaded accents and voila! Two of my greatest loves are mated into a new craft. Maybe someday I will write the instructions down.

What I'm spinning right now: a gorgeous heather gray Cotswold wool roving. Actually, it's done now, but I was spinning it about an hour ago.

Currently on one of my drop spindles is a handdyed bamboo top. Bamboo? Isn't that a big grass? Yes, it is, but it also creates a beautiful shiny and silky top. I find it softer and easier to spin than silk also. I'm going to be spinning more of this fiber- it's a welcome break from wools.

This is my last completed knitting project. Over Christmas when I took a few days off I learned to knit shawls. This is the Victorian lace something-or-other shawl. The pattern is free on elann.com. The yarn is natural mix Patons Classic wool, and this is the second shawl I ever completed, took me about a week total. Yes, I goofed on part of the left side, but hey, it's my second shawl!
