In my future there is a spinning wheel.

I've begun to knit with my hand-spun yarn and I'm in trouble.


I love knitting with it so much, I need more. I can't spin fast enough on my spindle. I need a spinning wheel.


The pattern is Trillian and it's one of those patterns where with a bit of maths (and a leap of faith) you can use every last bit of the yarn, I'm happy about this - I don't want to waste any of it.

I have to ration the time I spend on it because I have deadlines not looming but gently waving at me from the bottom of the garden. One more picture of the prettiness:


Also, I'm pretty sure I've lost one of my Van Gogh socks, I'm not that upset yet because I'm not 100% sure but I'm about 93% sure so fair warning there might be desolation on the horizon.


  1. What a gorgeous scarf! I adore my spinning wheel, you will not regret it!

  2. Lol, I love your imagery about deadlines waving at you gently, I definitely know the feeling!

    Gorgeous scarf, and gorgeous yarn. Have fun looking for a wheel!

  3. Lovely scarf! What is that fiber you have used? Nice colour combination :)
    And about wheels... I am already anxiously waiting my new wheel to arrive, and I do know how one can miss it... No chance I'd spin with spindle as much I know I want to spin with wheel. But waiting seems to be sooooooo looooooong...

  4. Oh wow, that is gorgeous! I didn't realise it was handspun from the pictures, I thought it was a zauberball! What a fantastic job!

  5. You made such amazing yarn :O). I love the colors. It's perfect for this pattern.
