Yarn Bowl by Wendy Fowler Pottery on Etsy.
It's been a busy year and now that I'm back on my feet again after 5 years of fertility treatment and operations I'm back to full steam; dyeing, carding, spinning and creating for the shop. I have also thrown myself in the deep-end with a lot more show activity too... which I have loved every minute of!
The downside to this is that the balance between business and life is somewhat disrupted... there's little 'me' time. I have been ok with that so far... I needed it.
A full year of shows has been liberating from where I was mentally last year, after my second miscarriage. The chance to get out and meet people has been the tonic and the distraction I needed. However, now that I am towards the end of the show run, I am suitably knackered and in need of a sit down... knitting will be my 'me' time therapy now.
During the shows I worked mostly on socks... a lot of socks! Now I want to start different knits.
I picked up my Spiral Cowl pattern and a skein of my Malachite colourway on my LUX Aran base. This is an easy knit and something I can get my teeth into while I plan my next and more complicated knit... I don't know what that will be yet, but I can feel it needs to come... you have those knitting pangs too right?!
Anyway... I'm working on this cowl for now and have taken it almost everywhere with me.

I'm not sure when I will finish it... I have to admit I do have a pair of socks (or two) on the needles too... which my friends seems to be a true addiction now! Anyway when I do actually finish it I will show you on the podcast and post it to the Facebook group.
Feel free to show me what you are making too, won't you...
Have a wonderful day... Sara x
