Shawl is finished and blocking. More details to come after it has been sent and received.  And when it's not past my bedtime...

Sunhat finished finally

And taking it for a test drive. It only got pulled off once, I was quite surprised.

It took a long time from cutting this out to finishing it, because I somehow made the pattern too big. Once I fixed that, it went together very quickly. I'm still contemplating putting some cording around the edge to stiffen the brim a wee bit, but it's not really too floppy.

I have my spinning back too, here it is in all its glory.

Left to right: Romney worsted 2 ply, Merino worsted single, Romney semi-worsted single, Corriedale semi-worsted 2 ply, Lambswool woollen single.
