Daily Photo: Making 1

Part of the Daily Photo series of photos taken and curated by Jeni Reid especially for WOVEMBER, this photo series documents beautiful things Jeni Reid has made with WOOL in celebration of for the WORKING WITH WOOL phase of WOVEMBER.

This is a selection of my own woolly endeavours. Some knitted, some spun, some a bit of both.


I bought a fleece from Margaret Doull at Shetland Wool Week 2014 and when Julia Billings, aka Woollenflower was looking for test knitters for a pattern, I knew that it would be perfect for the job. All I had to do was spin over 1000 yards of hand carded woollen-spun two ply, learn how to read lace from a chart and cast on hundreds of stitches! It worked out fine in the end. Here is Julia modelling my finished shawl.

  1. Only a spinner/ knitter who scours, cards, or combs, and then knits large objects like your beautiful shawl will appreciate the humor in your remark. 😉
