(0:51)All Spun Up
I was itching to spin something easy and fun, so I picked up my scrap swap pink batts. The cool colours from the swap were spun up and used to finish my featherweight cardigan. It has ended up as about a worsted weight n-plied yarn in a lovely dusty rose colour.
I have also participated in the Spin along on the ravelry board for hilltopcloud using some of her Jacob / Silk Blend 70/30. This ended up as an aran weight n-plied yarn.
My spindle project is the January 2014 fibre club from Wildcraft. This is a lovely grey corridale overdyed with blues and greens called Reindeer Moss. I am spinning it up fractally which I spoke about a bit more in episode 4. I’ll make a Jeweled Cowl by Sachiko Uemura from it which is a free cowl pattern with beads.
I have finally finished my Pomme de Pin cardigan! I even found perfect buttons for it in my button stash. They were part of a UK handspun magic yarn ball swap and are handmade wooden toggles.
I have been participating in the Clincher KAL on Instagram hosted by HandmadeByAllieCat its #clincherspringkal. I used my finished hilltop cloud yarn above and then the March 2012 fibre club from LongdrawJames in really bright pinks and purples. Here’s a photo of me on holiday visiting Well’s Cathedral and sporting my cowl.
I decided to do a baby bootee knit along with my mom, we used the EZ Bootees pattern. I used up lots of odds and ends from my stash including yarn from Interlacements dyed by Judi Ditmore back when she was still the owner.
On the Needles –
I’ll feature these next time but I do have socks and a shawl on the needles at the moment.
The next event I will be attending is Wonderwool. This takes place April 26th – 27th at the Royal Welsh Showground Builth Wells.
We made three kinds of ravioli – sausage and tomato sauce, squash and walnut, shropshire white and cream cheese with chili and lemon
I used the pasta recipe from the cookbook Plenty written by Yotam Ottolenghi as a guide and the rest we made up from there.
To top it all off I made an amazing crumble using day old bread for the topping, and a filling of apple and local rhubarb.

Twelfth Night Act 3 scene i
No, indeed, sir; the Lady Olivia has no folly: will keep no fool, sir, till she be married; and fools are as like husbands as pilchards are to herrings; the husband’s the bigger: I am indeed not her fool, but her corrupter of words.
