Slouch Beanies (1)

Slouch beanies great for persons female/male who have lots of hair including dredlocks and want to wear a beanie. These are hand knitted using a mixture of yarns with a blend of wool, mohair, arcylic etc. These do not have to handled so gentle as my pure wool hand spun beanies.
These beanies are on their way to Bellingen. A shop called Soul Weaving will have them on display to sell.
In preparation for those cold mornings nothing better to keep our ears warm is a beanie.

Dredlock Beanie

These look so good on and so colourful. You get the effect of Dredlocks without having actually dreadlocks which can be painfull to have done.
I have sold a few that I took previously to Bellingen market so decided to make a few more.

Scrunchy Beanies.

Know why I can them scrunchy beanies, cos you can roll them up and scrunch together and they will just come back to their original shape.
It is raining outside and I am babysitting my sisters dog and cat plus my own dog, so its time to go and explore what I have in scrap/leftover handspun yarn, try and co-ordinated some colour scheme and thickeness of yarn.

Black/Red Scarf &Beanie

My sister has a red coat and in preparation for winter which is some months off yet decided to see what I had in my commercial yarn stash. She loves black, thats where I started and before long I had a good collection. I used No 10mm needles and cast on 210 stitches I then knitted each row(garter stitch) using two rows of each yarn at random. I left extra yarn at each end for fringing. Having some yarn over I used it for a beanie.
As I have many balls of different commercial yarns in my stash I am thinking I am attempting another or more.

I Love My Spinning Wheel T-Shirt I have just printed a few. The Spinning Wheel is a Symphony double treadle Saxony Wheel. I do not own one but I'm sure there are many happy spinners using one. I have a (1)Ashford Traditional. (2)A Babe with a woolly winder double treadle,(3) a Louet single treadle, (4) one that is old and spins a lovely fine thread but I have tried to get a name for this one but not as yet and my(5) electric Spinner which I also added a woolly winder to.
