Camisette finale

My last 2015 project is finished - Camisette from Jane Austin Knits (Fall 2012).
I am not entially satisfied with the result but it is wearable.

Christmas Village

There are a lot of things I have not finished this year (although I hoped to) but Christmas ornaments are done.
Bakery is from 2014.

Two more years and I will have a full set.

Green results

It took me just :) three months to finally produce 10 gr of cotton. But what a result - I did not believe till the very end that it would become green after boiling, and it did!
I wonder, how much more cotton I need in order to start weaving towels...

Second batch - brownish easy-to-spin sliver. Ten more grams to go!

Time to ply

I've managed to spin four tiny bobbins of green cotton. Now it's time to ply. 
I am supposed to get something similar to 8/2 or 10/2 cottons. Looks about right...

Besides, now I am a lucky owner of two lightweight spindles. I am planning to use them for yak and silk fibres I already have. 
Can you have enough spindles, I wonder?...
