Comfort Knitting

homespun0shawl-1-600wWhat do you knit when you find yourself at home with  your stash? I feel inclined to call this my Mother Earth shawl. A nice simple pattern starting with just 15 stitches and ending up with so many that they tried to escape from my 80cm circular needle.

The 2 metre “wingspan” shawl is made from wool that started life as a smelly fleece that I washed in my bath, then dyed and finally spun on my spinning wheel before putting it all back together in this cosy shawl that My Better Half describes as “rustic”.

    You are so very clever — the bit about the spinning wheel is astonishing to me. And I love the outcome, rustic or not.
