Approaching summer...

...I have purchased 4 ply cotton yarn in several colours from the Bendigo Woollen Mills for machine knitting. And have completed a few Vest/Wraps on the Empisal machine using the lace maker.


And here is a full Lace Cardigan in Red.

This one is Orange and is Pure Wool from Bendigo Woollen Mills.

This is in a Natural Grey 3 ply from our sheep. This vest is more plain without any lace but similar to a mock rib with needles out of work. Very light so suitable for summer wear as well.
Recently we had an agreed sale with our farm but unfortunately that fell through after they were not able to get their full finance. We had destocked our cattle, so still have my sheep. We missed out on a smaller property as this purchase had to be cancelled. So feeling a bit raw after all these disappointments.
But my studio work continues while another farmer looks to see if he can get finance to purchase as his property backs on to ours.
Spinning a Chocolate coloured fleece at the moment and am trying to get some mixed colour blends done as well.
