Det har gått i strikking og rokke trening / It is knitting time, and training on treadling

Det har vært noen dager siden jeg har skrevet nå, men det har vært så mye å gjøre 🙂 Strikke pannebånd, pulsvarmere, baby booties også ikke aller minst, trene på å trå på rokken og få til noe spinning av garn. Og det har vært et stort problem til i dag, fikk tips fra en annen spinner som har Majacraft Little Gem 2 og etter litt forandring på noen av innstilingene på rokken så spinner jeg :))
