Well what a find ! just when I was feeling decidedly odd having picked up some knitting needles I found this site !
I have been breeding Angora rabbits for about 30 years but usually give away my fibre or .. throw it away .. I hear you shrieking.. Well I decided I would finally do something with it so I found my local guild on the internet and went on a course to learn to spin! I bought an Ashford spinning wheel on Ebay for 70 quid and wahoo I now have some yarn ! Well what to do with it? I wanted something cheap and easy so Knitting seemed the obvious choice. The image of course of a man knitting was abhorrent to me.. and my friends LOL but what the F*** !!!! I did it anyway .. . Attached is a pic of my first yarn made from Angora/Alpaca/Moorit Sheep... I wanted something butch and masculine so dark brown seemed apt.. I am making a scarf in a ribbed pattern.. I have never knitted before and learned from the videos on www.knittinghelp.com I have learned mostly from you tube videos and the internet so just shows what can be done eh.. anyhow photos of project one attached I hope.. and I will keep you informed on my progress.. I have big plans but little knowledge an know how just yet LOL ..
