Taking a break

My blog is just over 1 year old now, and as much as I like to read other blogs I feel less compelled to blog myself lately. So, I decided to take a little break.
Some of you continue to check my blog now and then but nothing is happening here LOL !
I will be reading and commenting on your blogs though and if you want to see what I'm up too, you can always check Ravelry and maybe leave me a comment there if you like, I'm blackbun over there.

Now I won't leave you without some pictures now !
I spun some beautiful soft grey merino/alpaca/silk roving into this fingering weight 2-ply yarn.
The picture does NOT do this justice because it has silver sparkles in it which don't show here.
It's almost like the yarn Nancy describes in this post on her blog !
I love it ! I also started to knit something with it, my first selfmade yarn knit up, that's so cool !
It's a simple lace pattern for a little scarf, only just started so I can't make much of it yet.
The roving was from Enchanted Knoll, 3 oz and 377 yards.

Here is another handspun project, I'm making a cowl (since everyone seems to make one nowadays) of roving bought from Allspunup. Not finished yet either. Seems like a case of startitis here.

And yet some more handspun, now it get's boring doesn't it ?

This is from 80/20 merino/tussah silk which was buttery soft . I have no idea how much yardage I have here, I lost count when I was winding it on the niddy-noddy. Yeah counting can hard sometimes.

So for now I will leave you with this. I have had such a good time with you and want to thank you for al the kind comments you have left here. It's greatly appreciated !

Wishing you all the best,

and keep on knitting !!!!!!!!!!!!
