Snow Trapeze

It's been a little bit snowy here, fortunately I have had the blankety loveliness of my newly made Trapeze dress to keep me toasty.

I bought some Manx Loaghtan tweed at Woolfest  a couple of years ago with the intention of making a trapeze but it's taken me this long to get around to it and I was sweating on getting it out of the yardage I had.

I just managed to squeeze out what I wanted, the tweed is divine 

and after a couple of tweaks  I've worn it a lot.

I  took advantage of the snow to have a go at cleaning my wool doormat, apparently it's a thing.

It stays on the line to get chilly while I beavered away in the warm.

We all had a snow day and I  decided to do a bit of acid dyeing, I hadn't tried it before but I will be doing more.

This is to show the clear 'exhausted' water.

I had about 2000m of Shetland, the bright blue is lambswool and cotswold which was an early spinning attempt, a bit of Shetland singles, Cotswold and the two tone is  lambswool and linen.

I've been double jumpered and wrist-warmered up and wearing my latest knit, Pink Memories by 
Isabell Kraemer in a local yarn, Shropshire 1512 from Ewe & Ply.
