I am trying my hand at a wool/silk blend and it is lovely!
It took a bit to get the hang of it but Abby from Abby's Yarns was kind enough to give some pointers. You're right Abby, it does help to move your hands apart more!
And next on the sewing list is an apron for yet another swap! Here is the fabric I chose, and I got enough for a tote for myself.
