My Creative Space

Happy December everyone1
This last month I have been on a mission. I have set myself a task of spinning 50/50 silk and merino to create something gorgeous for my mum for christmas.
These are the stages so far. Sorry I forgot to take pics of the tops before I started the spinning - I was so eager.

 I love the natural colours.....

 but my mum loves grey...

.....so grey it is.

And now I am madly crocheting away. Thought I would have it finished but the lady in question has been staying with us over the last few days  - but I am back on the hook now.
And if you want to see what I am currently spinning head over to 1FUNKYKNITWIT - mine's the citrusy colours.
AND for more creativity head over to ourcreativespaces.
