Spinning Part 2

Hey all,

After some e-mailing I found out there is a place with drop-spindles about 500m from my home this Friday to Monday! I'll still be going to the atelier of the spinsters (if they have time this weekend) and I'm going to sea with my dad.
So I hope to have some spinning to show next week!

Hi all,

I would love to make my own yarn for my patterns. Mostly because I can never find the right colour or size. So I have wanted a spindle for a long time. One problem: I am a student so I don't have much money or room for a spindle. So when I saw drop spindles for the first time I decided I wanted to have one.
My dad knows this so because I got a 100+ page-views already he going to take me to buy a drop spindle! I am really exited.
We are probably going to De Spinners (The spinsters). They have a lot of beautiful spindles! The site is in Dutch but you can check it out anyway.
As soon as I get a drop spindle I will post pictures.
So thanks everyone for viewing my blog and I'll try to post a new pattern or design by Tuesday.

Cable Leg Warmer

Hi all,
My leg warmers!
I love skirts and dresses. That is why the first design I shared was a skirt.
I also love the sun on my face. That is why I was working on a shrug. It was too cold for just a shirt so a shrug is perfect.

Too bad the weather didn't agree with my view on how warm it should be. Spring weather is late and I wanted to wear skirts so I made some leg warmers. So now I share my new leg warmers with you all!

French Rope Braid

Hi all,

I found some older pictures on my computer that I wanted to share.
I love braiding so I asked my friend to be my model and give my time to test out a few braids. The first I will share is a French rope braid.

Skirt update (Photos)

Hey hey,

Because of some computer, photo and weather issues I give you my belated update.

Here is my skirt!

[WIP] Shrug

Hi all,

I'm working on a simple shrug at the moment. It is fast and easy but it looks cute. It is easy to alter it in different sizes and fun to make. I hope to post a photo with a pattern tomorrow or Sunday.

I am open to ideas for new projects at the moment so let me know if you want help with something.

Basic crocheted skirt (including pattern)

Hi there all!
I have made a basic skirt. Pictures will follow this weekend when I get my boyfriend to snap some shots.
The pattern is very easy and doesn't require much attention.
The pattern consists of two parts. The skirt and the waistband.
It can be made in any yarn you want as long as you have a fitting crochet needle. I used a hook size 4 with matching yarn. I used two colours, one for the skirt and one for the waistband.
