So I caved a while back and bought some of that handspun angora that Malabrigo puts out. You don't get much yardage for the money, but it is just so damn pretty.
And, having lost my favorite pair of rabbit fur (vintage, ok??) earmuffs.... I made these.
I thought that I had a brilliant plan that would negate the need for a chin tie, but unfortunately they just do not sit tight enough without one. I can't tell if they're cute or intensely stupid looking.
Anyway...if it seems like there is an interest I'll write up the pattern. Otherwise, you can just laugh at me :-)
Meanwhile, I've resolved to do more spinning. I've been neglecting it because knitting is much easier to pick up for a few minutes here and there, but I miss it.
So here is some baby camel. A tricky fleece, but so worth it, and I don't particularly mind the unevenness. I didn't have very much though, so I don't know what I'll do with it, besides replace a camel bracelet/cuff thing that I lost a year or so ago.
More to come, I hope.
