sneaky peekies

A newsletter reader asked for some pictures of the wide carder in use.

First up was some 'fairy wings' angorino. Just 50g but it fitted on the drum easily. I'd usually do that quantity in two lots so it made short work of that.

Next up was some of the Shetland I scored recently.

I kept feeding until the drum seemed full. A monstrous batt indeed, but weighed in at 66g, a bit short of the promised 100g, but I'm sure it's possible to get more on next time, particularly at the edges. The drum tended to fill in the middle before the edges, but I'm sure that's just practice.
And a sneaky peeky of a new range of hooks and needles - ebony and rosewood with the most exquisite finish:

Available on Handknitter very shortly and possibly p2tog too.
