December Fibre Club :: Wistmas

I almost didn’t share this here with you because I have a lot of other things to share this month and it’s cross-posted from The Sweet Georgia Blog. I absolutely love how this turned out, though, and I wanted to share it with you here. Instead of a lot of writing, I’m going to let the photos speak for themselves. I divided the braid in half horizontally and spun each strip end-to-end. This is a traditional 2-ply but the colours matched up perfectly. In the end, the results really inspired me and I’ve actually ordered seconds from the studio, which I’ll pick up in January. I have very special plans for it.

In an effort to come back to crafting, spinning and knitting rejuvenated and fresh, I am going to be taking a short break for the next week. I won’t be online much, if at all, while we celebrate New Years with my family. We have had a wonderful holiday season with extensive travel and now is the time to rest.

I want to wish you all a wonderful New Year and thank you for your support. Your kindness, comments and warmth have been a wonderful source of inspiration and creative growth for me this year. I wouldn’t have continued with the videocast if not for all of you, so thank you. I will be back with a new episode at the end of January and there will be some finished knitted objects that I’m dying to show you in the interim.

Happy Holidays,
