New (old) Toy

Getting started; Base and first coat of black. I am leaving the rest unpainted wood and will be finishing that with a nice coat of wax. The wheel and tredle will be decorated further once I either find my brushes or break down and buy new ones. And when I find just the right design.

Colours simply for fun!

A first look at the yarn. Only a two ply and looks kinda cool.

Started this yarn out with coloured rolags and spun in random order. Causing a bit of a colour block effect on the bobbins. You can see this in the second picture.

I'm going to have to say this yarn has a rather rustic look and feel, though it is a bit loftly or plush? for a 2ply. The colours have a sort of country'ish feel/look to them.

It was fun. I certainly do like how this yarn turned out.

Lace Curtains

I really truely have no idea how perfectly/terribly these will turn out to be. This is right up there with some of the biggest changes within my knit and crochet world.
So far I really love it and find it quite preferable at this moment.

You can find the pattern from the following link.
