Aran Chunky Jacket

That's better! Belt completed and lovely natural wood slice buttons added

Sunday, 23 February 2020

Imbolc passed me by this year as I was so busy but here are 'the fair maids of February' in the back garden.
 This handknit Aran jacket is a new design. It's knitted in chunky wool from the Silverdale flock and it's waiting for some natural wood buttons from Arnside to complete it. Pictured outside the Shabby Chic Shed which is now ready to store some of this year's fleeces.
 Too windy to photograph outside but this handwoven shawl is what has been keeping me busy. This one is lustrous Masham wool from Yealand Conyers woven in stripes with some soft Cheviot/Leicester wool from Silverdale. I've also woven 2 grey shawls from the unique 'one off' fleeces and that yarn is now nearly finished. Hope there will be more this year.
