I have not posted in a while! It is close to Christmas and I have been working more hours and wrapping presents buying presents, making presents.
A present that I have been working on my own are a beautiful pair of hand sheared, hand spun, hand knit mittens!
This is a pictures of me shearing one of my beautiful lilac angora’s. She is so calm she just sits and waits. This was my first time shearing my rabbits and I got enough to make two mittens.
It was so interesting to spin because it is very slippery, but angora is 6 or 7times warmer than sheep’s wool and my hands where just sweating while I was spinning it. After I filled a bobbin I navaho plied it.
Any way that is my Christmas knitting for ya! It has snowed here and I can’t wait to get outside and play in it, so I am going to go.
Have a merry Christmas every one!
