Cold Sheep 2016 – September progress

I got kittens in September and they were far too cute (and far too interested) to get much knitting done during the month. That said, I did manage to churn out a 4-ply handspun sweater which used up 1,220 yards of yarn.

I also worked on a new hat design which used up 161 yards of Wollmeise and co-ordinates to Diamond Wristers

I haven’t tried the kittens out with my spinning wheel yet, I already had to switch from DPNs to magic loop for the hat because they found it so fascinating.
