Sorry for the lack of posts in the last couple of weeks. I have been busy hand knitting a scarf for a special friend who is off to live in Boston in the USA. They have bitterly cold winters there and so I thought a scarf made from the hair of my beautiful samoyeds, Seamus and Teadach, would be the perfect gift. I collect the fleece when I am brushing them. When I had 1 kg or so I had it hand spun. The woman who spun the fleece did a beautiful job of spinning it very finely. The scarf was knitted with 3.75mm needles. I gave Les the scarf today and he was indeed pleased.
Here's the scarf and a skein of the puppie's lovely fleece.
Valerie did a lovely job of the spinning and made these gorgeous labels with a photo of the dogs.
