Future plans
I caked up my A Homespun House Bakken in the Dewdrop colourway. Still unsure whether to knit a garment or a shawl out of it. I am considering the Succulent Shawl by Maria Montzka.

I spun my first singles yarn. Fibre was from Sara’s Texture Crafts Colour Club inspired by Impressionist Painters, and is called Sunset at Dusk.

I do a quick review of the new Craftsy Class, Spinning Stupendous Singles by Amy King.
