3.a. Tea Swap
3.b Gentle Along
Craft something that makes your life more gentle. Cosy socks, a shawl, a blanket, a tea cosy… Does not need to be cast on specifically for this, and multiple-dipping is of course fine. Can be any craft.
Let’s share ways in which we are mindfully gentle to ourselves.
People have been sharing inspirational thoughts and projects in the Ravelry group.
– One skein of Lambswool and mohair Aran from Gregoria Fibers.
– One braid of BFL and Trilobal from Fondant Fibre in the Happenstance colourway.
– The Tea Collection by Clare Devine: one ebook for one winner, and one pattern for two winners.
– A project bag sewn by me.
4. A BIT OF SEWING
I am making a dress out of Newlook 6643.
Vanilla socks for Seb out of Online Supersocke 4-fach, in the shade 1530.
5.b In Progress
Hitofude Cardigan out of Surnaturelle yarn from La Droguerie, in the Ardoise (Slate) colourway.
One skein of Succulent from Voolenvine, on her Lush base.
6. A BIT OF SPINNING
I’ve been spinning Fuzzlings from Fondant Fibre. I mention Andean plying.
