Shetland shawl and wonderful weaving

I have finished my Old Shale Shawl in shetland 3ply from Natural Yarn.

It’s lovely, soft and snuggly and will be a great Christmas present for my mother-in-law (shhhhh, don’t tell her, I think I’m pretty safe as she doesn’t do the internet).

I have also been enjoying more weaving on my new loom. I invested (note the term!) in an Ashford 4 shaft table loom and enlisted Mr Knittingkitten to help with building it, it looked rather complicated but actually went up fairly easily (we’ve had previous training via Ikea).
However, it took 3 attempts before I managed to warp it, that looked complicated and most definitely is, I’m sure with practice it will become easier (?!?). I’ve started a project using Noro Kureyon, the colour blending works really well.

Finally, I have, at least, decided upon a pattern for my handspun Jacob, I will fill you in with more details another time but for now here’s a photo.
