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.
